    There was no Vice President under Joseph Lane. President Douglas died after a few months in office and was succeeded by Vice President Lane.

    Damn. Politics overhaul looks crazy.

    I always like alt news articles, especially the little details in the recommended news tab, so that'll be fun too.

    Good luck!

    Do you have the entire presidents list planned out or can I make a suggestion for it?

    Well I figured out the Presidents more or less that are OTL figures, I just need to create alternate Presidents now. I do need to figure out the Vice-Presidents though.

    Maybe you could make Robert Todd Lincoln be a VP then. I know he was firmly against taking the offices of President or VP in OTL, but since this is an ATL that diverges before the Civil War you could probably get away with it

    Whoops, forgot Lane was Douglas’ VP and had thought he was directly elected

    Basically the SS is this universe's FBI. Do they still have the duties of protecting the President?

    Basically yea, the Federal Marshals fill that role of protecting the President actually as well as being the main federal law enforcement agency.

    SS huh? Was their founding leader a deranged neo-paganist and former chicken farmer?

    (Seriously though, nice entry!)

    To be fair, it's possible that in some other universe, there's someone going 'CIA huh? Pretty unfortunate acronym, the Central Integralist Alliance devastated half of Europe'.
