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.
That said, given Wallace's opportunism, presumably he was more hawkish while in office.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."
is this your first box for this tl or are there more because i am interestedThe 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.
An odd little idea of a Flashpoint Batman in our, albeit a tad more dystopic 1939
