nope, seeing as he passed 4 years before this election. He also founded a massive media empire that is still around to this day, albeit with different kind of ideological heads. If you think you know who it is, message me and I'll tell you if you're wrong or right.It's not Wilkie, is it?

Here's a map I made of a hypothetical party system in an independent New England. I kept the parties somewhat simple, with four major parties and one minor one. The Progressive Party is a pretty standard left wing party, advocating for social liberalism, government intervention in the economy, and various government programs. The Commonwealth Party is the conservative party, in favor of the free market and rather socially conservative, albeit not as right-wing as the US Republicans. The Solidarity Party is a populist working class party that supports similar economic protections as the Progressives and has similar social positions as the Commonwealthers. The Liberal Party is a socially liberal party whose base is mostly upper middle class areas, and it is popular among voters who are NIMBYs and/or don't want higher taxes. The Green Mountain Party is a lot like the Progressive Party ideologically, but is a Vermont regionalist party dedicated to advocating for Vermonter interests. The map above represents a relatively neutral political atmosphere. No party has a majority of seats, but the Commonwealthers have a 41% plurality (152/368). I didn't make this map specifically as a US-style or Westminster-style system, but in the former this would mean the Commonwealthers would try to elect a speaker with a plurality of seats, and in the latter they would need to caucus with the Solidarity Party to get a majority.
