"Hoynes to publish first alternative history novel"
Former Vice-President and former Governor of Texas John Hoynes announced today that he would be publishing another book, entitled "1600 Pennsylvania." In a shift from his other books, however, he announced that this novel would take a look at an alternative history in which he won the Democratic nomination in 1998 (Bartlet decides not to run) and defeated Vice-President David Eisenhower in the general election. Hoynes mentioned the fate of several characters during his announcement speech:
1. New Hampshire Governor Josiah "Jed" Bartlet: Appointed Secretary of the Treasury under President Hoynes but resigns in 2005 following an MS attack
2. Washington Senator William Wiley: Appointed Secretary of state under Hoynes in order to get his endorsement during the primaries
3. "Hoynes for President" Deputy Campaign Manager Josh Lyman: Appointed Chairman of the DNC
4. Ohio Governor Mike Reed: Elected President of the United States in 2006 after the end of the Hoynes administration
