Just a bit of fun with models. Let me introduce:
Neopaleocene Epoch

Tajlero Mateofilo is a Mousterian politican who is currently serving as the 35th President of Mousteria. Mateofilo was born in Oraurbo, Mousteria on November 22nd, 1963. Mateofilo earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Oazourbeto and a Masters Degree in History from Arbeto University. Mateofilo first became involved in politics during the 2009 Mousterian-
Atlantean Crisis that almost led to a war between the two nations. Mateofilo, teaching at the University of Mamutotombejo, seeing the crisis his nation was in, decided to run for President in the 2012 Mousterian General Election. Mateofilo filed under the Populist Party, an eco-socialism political party, and ran a grassroots campaign. His popularity with the citizens led him to get second place in the first round of elections, only behind then current President Ŝieĥo Erdoano and his Independence Party. Mateofilo would win the second round in a landslide, becoming the first Populist party President.
During his administration, Mateofilo has opened up trade relations with Avalon, Thule, and Zion. Relations with Atlanteans have cooled since Mateofilo has become President. Relations with Alfheim have worsened with sanctions on them for not adequately protecting the Alfheimia Unukornulo (Eohippus monoceros) from commercial hunters. Mateofilo also implemented multiple new policies for Mousteria, including new wildlife protection, like for the critically endangered Mousterian elephant, restrictions on carbon emissions, and the creation of the National Environmental Protection Bureau (Nacia Mediprotekta Buroo).


Mousterian elephants (Elephas mousterian. Also called Glaciaostoj) is the only living species of Elephas living on the Europan subcontinent. There is some debate if Mousterian elephants shouldn't be classified as part of the Mamutom genus due to the many similarities between the two, which would make the Mousterian elephant the last surviving member of the Mamutom genus as opposed to a member of the Elephas genus. The Mousterian elephant is often hunted for its meat, which is used in some local cuisines, and their tusks, which have been used in art, medicine, and religious practices since early pre-history. Ancestors of the Mousterian elephant lived alongside the ancestors of Homo sapiens sapiens, Homo neanderthalensis, and Homo auriscuspis. Conservation efforts first began in 1993, but they weren't enforced until the election of Tajlero Mateofilo in 2013 and the creation of the NEPB (NMB).


Diourso is a religious that originated during the early Holocene. It worships the immortal bear spirit Diourso and its legendary founder Unurso Reĝo who fights Diourso. It is followed mostly by Neanderthals with a few million human converts to the religion. In the past, it faced persecution from followers of Ragnarökism, an Alvish religion, and followers of
Thálassa, an Atlantean religion. Practioners of this religion often wear clothes the color of red ochre, which represents the blood of Unurso Reĝo and is used as protection from Diourso.
Diourso is said to hunt for those who wander too far into the wilderness or alone in the dark. There are other minor deities within the pantheon of Diourso, mostly minor protection spirits or other evils. This includes the protector spirit of Mamutom, a Mousterian elephant spirit that can both protect or hurt the worshiper depending on the nature of the prayer and the offerings given.
The Holy Works of Unurso Reĝo is a collection of deities, spirits, proverbs, laws, and philosophical concepts that have been collected over the past few eons. While none can be proven to come from Unurso Reĝo himself, the texts have become codified into a text for followers of Diourso to follow in their daily lives.
There are some social scientists who theorize that Diourso originated from early encounters of Cave Bears (Ursus spelaeus) along with an ancient chief of a Neanderthal tribe killing a Cave Bear which gave rise to the legend of a bear killing king that evolved into the Diourso religion. The other aspects of the religion come from traditional beliefs of the Neanderthals, sayings by other pious people, and societal rules that kept people from intentionally physically hurting one another.
 
The 1968 United States presidential election was the 46th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 5, 1968. In a closely contested election, Democrat George Wallace of Alabama defeated Republican Philip Willkie of Indiana, ending a string of Republican Party wins that stretched back to 1952.

Incumbent Republican U.S. President Nelson Rockefeller decided against running for a second term, and Governor Philip Willkie of Indiana won the Republican primaries as a dark horse candidate, picking the relatively conservative ex-Governor Henry Bellmon of Oklahoma as his running mate. The Democratic primaries saw George Wallace, who had governed the state of Alabama from 1959 to 1963, emerge as the frontrunner following his triumph over Senator Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota; as a nod to Humphrey and his supporters, Wallace selected fellow ex-Governor Orville Freeman, a close political ally of Humphrey's, as his running mate.

Campaigning on his successes as Governor, Philip Willkie promised to continue the successes of the Rockefeller administration - expanding urban development and education reform while taking a stand against Communist aggression - while bringing a fresh perspective to government. Championing an economic populist platform and touting his image as a political outsider untainted by the Eastern Establishment, Wallace promised to dispel the "four-term fatigue" and the economic malaise of the Rockefeller administation, as well as de-escalate the conflict in Vietnam and end the Cuban occupation. Willkie and Wallace continually traded places in the polls; however, Wallace's oratory and campaigning skills significantly outmatched Willkie's, allowing him to put populous Midwestern states in play. Civil rights played a significant role in the presidential campaign: while Willkie attacked Wallace over his "ambivalence" on civil rights, Wallace painted Willkie as "neglectful and ignorant", and ultimately proved himself the more popular candidate with African-American and ethnic blue-collar voters.

Wallace won a 287 to 250 Electoral College victory as well as 49.9% of the popular vote to Willkie's 49.5%, with a faithless elector from Texas casting his vote for General Edwin Walker. Carrying nearly every Southern state, George Wallace became the first U.S. President from the Deep South since the Civil War. Analysts have argued that Wallace's perfomance in the 1968 election was crucial to the reconstruction and survival of the New Deal Coalition, which had faltered during Nixon and Rockefeller's presidencies.

The only thing I contest is this, given the area of the country he came from I doubt he would of ever really gone dovish on any of this stuff at all.
Wikipedia said:
Wallace's foreign policy positions set him apart from the other candidates in the field. "If the Vietnam War was not winnable within 90 days of his taking office, Wallace pledged an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops... Wallace also called foreign-aid money 'poured down a rat hole' and demanded that European and Asian allies pay more for their defense."
That said, given Wallace's opportunism, presumably he was more hawkish while in office.

Another little tidbit from RL Flashpoint...

Chosen as a bipartisan solution to the corruptive ailments of New York City by Governor Lehman, Thomas E. Dewey, right after the beginning of his tenure as Special Prosecutor of New York County, set his sights on Dutch Schultz and his lucrative numbers racket. This course of action, naturally, would not endear him to the mobster, or the Commission itself. During one of the tax evasion trials that Dewey had successfully prosecuted him for, Schultz rose up from his chair, ran over to Dewey and threw sulfuric acid into his face. The prosecutor attempted to dodge the assault, but half of his face got sprayed in the process. The permanent disfigurement of his face would still not prevent him from seeing the trial to its end. Unfortunately, Schultz would be assassinated on the orders of the Commission, which had allegedly refused to allow him the opportunity to assassinate Dewey.

Mental deterioration would slowly take place, as Dewey would be unable to cope with the mutilation of half his face as well as the inability to pursue a successful political career in the future, according to his ex-wife. The District Attorney's behavior, by the time of Jimmy Walker's resignation, would become increasingly erratic, with his alleged usage of a coin-flip to determine his everyday routines creeping out many of the people around him. Some allege that the Bat-Man and Two-Face (as Dewey was derogatorily referred to) forged an alliance to combat the NYC underworld's dwellers during the night, but many still write the sightings off as mere rumors.

The 1964 United States presidential election was the 45th quadrennial presidential election. The Democratic ticket of Incumbent President John F. Kennedy and his running mate, Governor Terry Sanford, who replaced former Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, who resigned in March, defeated the Republican ticket of Senator Barry Goldwater and Governor Jim Rhodes.

Kennedy faced one sole opponent in the Democratic primaries, from Governor George Wallace of Alabama, a Dixiecrat who opposed Kennedy's support of civil rights legislation. Vice President Lyndon Johnson had been consumed by the Bobby Baker scandal, and after an FBI investigation revealed evidence of minor involvement on the part of Johnson, he plead no contest to one charge of election fraud and resigned the Vice Presidency in March, leaving the position vacant. Senator Barry Goldwater entered a wide Republican field, but in part due to a split in the moderate wing of the Republican party, he was able to capture the nomination through a unified conservative support.

Campaigning on his successes, Kennedy vowed to fight for the passing of the Civil Rights Act which he proposed, as well as enact a "Grand Society" program of different welfare services, such as nationalized healthcare, known as Medicaid, and a war on poverty. Although Goldwater refused to attack Kennedy personally he did criticize these welfare policies, calling them an overreaching of federal power, and attacked the civil rights act on the same basis. Goldwater also campaigned in favor of escalating the conflict in Vietnam, even saying on the matter "no options were off the table". Kennedy campaigned against an increased troop surge in Vietnam, stating such decision would result in a quagmire. This election had very high minded debates, and historians note the civility between the two candidates towards each other, attributed to the fact the two men had been personal friends since joining the senate together in 1953.

On election day Kennedy would defeat Goldwater in a 366 to 172 electoral vote margin, and the race was called for Kennedy once California closed its polls. The seismic shift, however, in the South flipping from Democrat to Republican was noted by historians, as Kennedy made history as the first Democratic candidate to not win a single state in the south. He even very narrowly lost Lyndon Johnson's home state of Texas, where many felt animosity against Kennedy for what happened to Johnson in the Bobby Baker scandal, as well as their opposition to Kennedy's support of civil rights legislation.
