    Who would've Howard Dean picked as his VP, had he won the nomination in 2004?

    Hey folks. I'd really like to write up a Howard Dean scenario, or even make a silly wikibox. But I'm a bit stumped on who he would've picked as his VP. Gephardt seemed the obvious choice at first, but they argued a fair amount during the primaries and sort of attract the same voter. Is Edwards...

    WI: John Kerry Won 2004?

    As the title says, what happens if John Kerry won 2004? Nothing else in the election changes other than Kerry gets more votes in Ohio to beat out Bush. Say maybe it’s a reverse of 2000 where instead of Florida being very narrowly won by Bush in 2000, in 2004 Ohio is very narrowly won by Kerry...
  3. WI the USA did not ban “military assault weapons” sales 1989 - 2004?

    What if the USA did not ban importation of “military style assault weapons” between 1989 and 2004? We are primarily discussing how this ban affected civilian gun-owners.

    Dawn of the Dead (2004) 15 years after the outbreak...

    Note: I will soon make a timeline of the Zack Snyder's 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead based on Thecricketsarecalling's Biggest Fear fanfiction which although non-canon has been accepted by the fandom community as the Spiritual Successor to the remake. This is no way related to @potatogod34's...

    WI: Daschle ran in 2004?

    In Yes We (Still) Can, Dan Pfeiffer indicates Daschle was far closer to running for president in 2004 than I had previously believed. Apparently, it was sort of like a Bill Clinton 1988 situation where he had everything ready, but just never hit 'go.' I didn't realize it had gotten that far...

    A Different Dean Campaign, 2004?

    After watching some of the Democratic Primary Debates from the 2004 Election, and learning more about Howard Dean, I thought I'd try my hand at writing a TL for a better Dean campaign. I've tried to find some other timelines on this that had already been done, but couldn't come up with any (that...

    WI Bioterrorism in the USA, 2004?

    The title says it all, really. What if there had been a successful, large-scale act of bioterrorism committed in the United States in early 2004? How would President George W. Bush have reacted, both domestically and abroad? Assuming it was an act of radical Islamic terrorism, would this have...

    AHC: President Herman Cain

    IOTL, Herman Cain ran for President in both the 2000 and 2012 Elections. His campaigns never saw great success, and he withdrew from the Republican primaries in both cases. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to have Cain become President at some point. Whether he wins one of the...

    WI: Terror Alert Raised Before 2004 Election

    Homeland Security Tom Ridge was urged by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Attorney General John Ashcroft to raise the terror threat to improve Bush's re-election victory. What if a different DHS secretary follows through? Would Bush have a bigger victory, or would it backfire? What if it...

    She Can Do It: A Timeline

    Hillary Clinton Wins Illinois Senate Race Jake Henley | November 6, 1996 First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton won the 1996 Illinois senate race. The political move, although shocking, was recieved warmly by many. She managed to defeat fellow Democrats Dick Durbin and Pat Quinn in the Democratic...

    WI: Bill Clinton vs. George W. Bush 2004

    Let's say that the 22nd Amendment says that presidents can only serve two consecutive terms. Neither Eisenhower or Reagan run in 1964 or 1992. In 2004, former President Clinton announces a run against Bush, claiming to have the experience required to take America out of 9/11 and the Iraq War...

    WI: Kerry Wins EC, Loses Popular Vote

    Whenever I see a timeline where someone loses the popular vote, it always seems to be a Republican (someone tell me of any TLs where a Dem does it, I haven't seen one yet), but Kerry could have easily done it in 2004. He lost the popular vote by 3% and ended up with an electoral result of 251...
  13. WI John McCain wins 2000 election

    What if John McCain, not George W Bush, won the Republican nomination in 2000? How could this be done? Probably he wins South Carolina, maybe he successfully pushes back against the smear campaign run against him, but looking at coverage from the time that wasn't seen as a big factor in his...

    Praise the Lord!: A TLIAM

    So… So… … Do I start or you? I guess I do? I don’t really know. I mean, this is new for both of us. That’s true. Yup. … Shouldn’t you be asking questions? Oh, right. So like what’s the deal? With the timeline and stuff? Well it’s Canada 2004 with Bernard Lord leading the...
