    Effects if Nixon resigns for health reasons instead of Watergate?

    POD: The guy Nixon hires to bug the 1972 DNC is slightly more ocmpetent and doesn't get caught. Nixon gets reelected without any looming scandal, is able to continue being POTUS without "watergate" becoming a household name. Yeah, the story gradually leaks out in the 90s and 2000s but Nixon...

    Supreme Court Nominees if Humphrey wins in ‘68?

    As it says in the title; who would be likely nominees for the Supreme Court in the case where Hubert Humphrey defeated Richard Nixon in 1968? Right off the bat he would be naming Earl Warren’s successor as Chief Justice; either elevating a sitting Justice, or nominating a new Chief Justice...

    Robert F. Kennedy's career trajectory, in a world where he was never assassinated, has long been the subject of speculation and debate by diehard Kennedy supporters and alternate history fans alike. Much has been written about the plausibility of Kennedy becoming POTUS, be it after a miraculous...

After eight years of loyal service as Vice president to president Dwight Eisenhower, he had been declared the Republican candidate in the 1960 election. With...
  10. Nixon's 1960 cabinet.

    One idea i'm seriously considering is a "Nixon wins in 1960" thread. As i'm not particularly well informed of his connections at this point in his career, i thought i'd ask around. Who do you see Nixon placing in his administration if he managed to defeat JFK? You may explain your suggestions as...

    AHC: Nixon Loses Reelection

    I've just had an exhausting conversation with someone who seemed annoyingly convinced Nixon losing re-election was impossible and I'd like some help in proving him wrong. What scenarios could have prevented Nixon from getting a second term.

    "RFK announces presidential candidacy" - Headline of the Washington Post, 11th December 1967 "Kennedy is plausible.

  16. WI: Bayh-Celler becomes the 26th Amendment

    Before the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, before the Every Vote Counts Amendment, and before the all too infamous 2001 Presidential election, there was the Bayh-Celler Amendment of 1969. The Bayh-Celler Amendment was probably the closest point in US history where the Electoral College...

This was the most unusual of reactions, but he was the most unusual of men. He built his career on hunting commies - and unlike the nut McCarthy, he actually did. He...

    So who do you think is the most likely to win out of these? Assume things go middle of the road/reasonably well: Vietnam having been stabilized, Nixon/Kennedy able to come to an agreement on healthcare in 1974/1975 among other events to indicate it goes smoothly. My top three for most likely...
