    I was more thinking the Kennedys, but Clinton is certainly a good comparison (although Edwards was quite a bit more left-wing than Clinton, but you get the point)

    Perhaps he could have a mixture of LBJ's economic progressivism, and Bill Clinton's reputation for...shenanigans.

    Sounds about right. Although, you'd have to kick the shenanigans up a few notches.

    Louisiana just has a knack for producing some very colorful politicians: from Huey Long, to Jimmie Davis, to Dudley Le Blanc.

    This has probably been done before, in a better capacity, but eh, I was awake at 2am and this is what happens.
    Way back when, Marx considered moving to Texas around the time of Lincoln (this is the fuel for a lot of dog-whistle conspiracy theories, but I digress). As such, Marx's idea of a workers revolution finds its way into the Americas.

    I will take a stab at this.

    Browder is the analog of Vladimir Lenin.

    Dillinger is the analog of Joseph Stalin.

    Lovestone is the analog of Mikhail Gorbachev.​

    This is perhaps one of the stranger things I've done. It involves this guy becoming more successful earlier on, as well as falling from grace and moving to Ireland where he gets a fresh start

    Edit: fixed a small error. I put him as living in Dublin instead of Belfast in the personal life section of the original, so that's fixed now

    Parliamentary US part ¿ of ?: 2076 United States presidential election


    The 2076 United States presidential election was the 73rd quadrennial presidential election (and the 24th such election under the Columbia Constitution), held on Tuesday, November 3, 2076. The first round saw a three-way race for the runoff: Democrat Sebastián "Bas" Íñiguez McBride, the former Governor of Virginia, North Carolina Representative Nicole Phelps of Citizens' Alliance and Jonathan Schaller, the Premier of Florida, of Progressive Labor. Kansas Representative Norman Currier of the Republican Party would land a distant fourth place. Íñiguez McBride and Phelps would proceed into the runoff, with Schaller just missing out on the second round by half a percent. The second round would see Íñiguez McBride win by a near-ten point margin against Phelps. Íñiguez McBride became the first governor elected president since 2020, and the first Spanish-American elected president.

    While eligible for a third term as President, Republican Harold Waters stated in March 2074 that he would not seek a third term. Then-Vice President Stephanie Lorenz formed an exploratory committee for president in December of 2074 but announced after the snap 2075 election, which saw support for the Republican Party collapse nationwide, that she would not run for president. This would mark the first presidential election since 2000 that neither the incumbent president or vice president was the presidential nominee for any major party. Íñiguez McBride secured the Democratic nomination by February 2076 while Phelps and Currier faced no significant opposition during their respective primaries. Schaller fought a prolonged primary campaign against California Representative Susanna Franklin and Minnesota state Representative Patrick Tejada, which resulted in a brokered convention in August of 2076. Schaller's campaign was notable as the first time a Socialist or Progressive Labor candidate was endorsed by the party for president, signalling a shift in the informal power-sharing agreement between the Democrats and Progressive Labor.

    Early campaigning in the primaries focused heavily on the economy, which had begun to show signs of a recession, as well as the political climate in Washington; the 2075 snap election was precipitated by the collapse of the Republican-led Cobb government and the return of Howard Silverman to Blair House, while popular support for Republican President Harold Waters hovered around twenty percent during his final year in office. The snap House election also factored into the primary campaign directly, as both Phelps and Currier, in addition to nearly a dozen other primary candidates between the four major parties, had to face election for their House seats whilst also campaigning for their respective party's nomination.

    "Blind King George", as many could call him, was the last person one would expect to take up the mantle of monarch of the Kingdom of America. Sure the role was a ceremonial one with true power being invested in Parliament, but the American people still put great faith in the King and he had to serve as a symbol of unity to the nation.

    In the long run though, George II's story, even before he would be crowned King, would be one of overcoming the odds and adversity. Serving as a regent for his aging father, Prince George was determined to let the American people know, despite his disability, he was fit to be their King. The early years of George's reign would see the full independence of Texas and California, two republics that had fought for their independence from Mexico a decade earlier and had subsequently become American protectorates. The purchase of Alaska from the Russia Empire also occurred under George II, and by the end of his rule in 1878, the Kingdom of America comprised of around half the North American continent.

    Was inspired to make this after listening to this great 1980's rendition of Justin Bieber's "Baby":



    1980sbaby.PNG

    "Baby" is a song from Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber, released off of his debut album My World (1985). The song was recorded in 1984 and released on March 8, 1985, weeks before the release of My World. The music video for the song became a massive hit on MTV, and later went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 for 9 non-consecutive weeks in June, July and August 1985, becoming Billboard's No. 1 song of 1985. The song also won Song of the Year honors at the 1986 Grammy Awards. The song is now considered by many to be a defining song of the 1980's and one of the most recognizable songs of all time.
