    TLIAW: Camelot Lost

    This reminds me of the time I met this old-school Maryland Democratic Party official and he fondly remembered the first campaign he worked on (which was helping his mom put Adlai Stevenson 1956 leaflets in people's mailboxes). His heart warmed so much when I called Adlai the Eggman.

    AHC: Social-Democratic East Germany after 1990.

    Also: the post-communist period was not a fun time for East Germany economically! While we are getting caught up in the debate over the quality of life under the Eastern Bloc, the OTL path of shock therapy was not inevitable. The revolutions of 1989 were true revolutions, with the ability to...

    AHC: Social-Democratic East Germany after 1990.

    This is actually a very interesting scenario that could have easily happened IOTL. There's a very good article in Le Monde diplomatique about reunification with some interesting data points. For one, in a poll conducted for Der Spiegel as late as 17 December 1989, 71% of East Germans expressed a...

    Carter and the Falklands War

    If anything, Carter's re-election would make the chances of a Falklands War happening *at all* far less likely.

    Carter and the Falklands War

    Did either of you bother to look up what Carter's actual response was to the Falklands War? Indeed, far from offering "full support to the UK" as you mention, Reagan three times asked Thatcher to consider an Anglo-Argentine powersharing agreement with a joint American-Brazilian peacekeeping...

    40. Tom Kahn (D-MD) January 20th, 1989 - January 20th, 1993 Like his predecessor, Tom Kahn was born in New York, though this is where the similarities end. Born Thomas John Marcel, the future president was adopted by Adele and David Kahn, two Jewish left-wing union leaders. While attending...

    Threadmarks: 36. Cord Meyer (R-NY), 1961-1969

    36. Cord Meyer (R-NY) January 20, 1961 - January 20, 1969 "Jim sucked Cord Meyer in, in my view. Cord Meyer became not only a great admirer, but also believer." It had to be the conscience of the Republican Party. Of all the men who put their names forward for the presidency, it was the...
