    Could Teddy Roosevelt Have Mediated WW1?

    A negotiated peace in ww1 is an old debate, and the general conclusion seems to be "no one liked wilson enough for american mediation and were too angry to directly negotiate." But there's one president who was much more respectable and had a history of mediation for European affairs. Teddy...

    How can Teddy Roosevelt win in 1912?

    TL 191 DBWI: What if TR hadn't won a third term and stomped the snake?

  14. AHC/WI: Teddy Roosevelt wins in 1912 on the Progressive ticket.

    Much has been written about Teddy Roosevelt winning the Republican nomination in 1912, but is it possible to get him as president on the Progressive ticket? I imagine that this would require a different Democratic candidate and potentially a scandal. Is there any way this could be done...
