How's Pence?
That'd be Mike Pence Jr., or as wikipedia refers to him, 'Michael'. His pick as VP was a large reason why many voters detracted to third parties and tipped the election.

So the electoral college is gone? I imagine previous administration would do something about it. I mean I'm guessing there wasn't a lot of thought put into this scenario, but has WWIII happened yet?

Oh yeah, the Peyton administration did some great things, like scrap the EV, installed carbon scrubbers, mars colony, etc, so Earth is a relatively peaceful place...if you ignore the couple of big scars left by a minor nuclear exchange between China and the States. Which both sides regret, but hey, it paved the way for unilateral disarmament.

Over the years, George H.W. Bush has held a variety of offices, but perhaps he is best known for his actions as Secretary of State. His actions regarding the Iran Hostage Crisis has been mired in controversy. Bush authorized a covert deal to Iraqi Dictator Saddam Hussein the planning stages of the Iran-Iraq War. In exchange for aircraft, missiles, and other weapons, The Iraqi Military in return would rescue American hostages in a secret operation. Bush is allegedly reported to have used the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan as leverage, convincing Saddam Hussein that the Soviet Union would soon invade Iran, hoping to expand their empire. In the early morning hours of September 24th, Iraqi helicopters landed in the cover of darkness at Shahid Shiroudi Stadium, a football stadium across from the Embassy. Dozens of Iraqi soldiers stormed into the compound and rescued the 52 Hostages. The 52 Hostages were flown to Baghdad, and then to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where the hostages boarded the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy and were transported to New York, where they were greeted by thousands of Americans. Bush had apparently failed to notify Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and instead went through Chairman of The Joint Cheifs of Staff, David C. Jones, which resulted in a rumored physical confrontation between Rumsfeld and Bush, that President Ford himself had to break up in the Oval Office. Information about the covert deal was anonymously leaked to the fledgling TV News Network, CNN, on October 31st. The White House refused to comment on the story, leading to an electoral wipeout by Democratic Presidential Candidate Walter Mondale against Republican Ronald Reagan. Legend has it that Ford wanted revenge against Reagan for almost narrowly defeating him for the Republican Nomination in 1976. In one of Mondale's first acts as President, Bush was pardoned for any illegal actions he may have commited. Bush afterwards retired, with the exception of serving as semi-honorary board member of several corporations. Bush's eldest son, George, is current owner of the Texas Rangers, after having sold his shares in the oil business. Bush's other son, Jeb, has served as Senator from Florida since 1995 and unsuccessfully sought the Republican Nomination for President in 2008.
