If the two main parties were Democrats and Socialists, then the Democrats would have to be right of where they are IOTL, consequently, Warren would probably be a Socialist.
Why? Warren being a Democrat actually makes a lot of sense. Presumably Wall St. hasn't run amok. She might have identical positions to her IOTL self. Or she might even be to the right of OTL.

Wikipedia said:
Warren voted as a Republican for many years saying, "I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets." She states that in 1995 she began to vote Democratic because she no longer believed that to be true, but she says that she has voted for both parties because she believed that neither party should dominate.

Elizabeth Warren supports a free and fair market system IOTL, so I don't think she would be inclined to be a Socialist without a POD far back enough. She is from Oklahoma, the Socialists' strongest state, but them remaining powerful in the state would butterfly her away entirely.
 
Very nice, only thing I can see that might be off is that Scotland is a constituency of the European Parliament, rather being considered a country, though I suppose that might have changed ITTL.
The "countries" would be like the U.S. states, but member nations of the EU would still be independent, so Scotland would be for the United Kingdom as Catalonia and the Basque Country would be for Spain.

And here it is infobox of EU presidential election 2009. :)

I want 2004, but you've already spoiled the winner.
 
Mmm, I really like the Frank Church pick being seen as a bad thing. But what happens to Reagan in 1980?
I saw Gerald Ford going into 1976 stronger than OTL by buying Reagan off in the primaries with a cabinet post (Attorney General, maybe) In 1980 Ford is less popular than Carter was in OTL 1980 and like Dole he's too close to Ford to do well. The honest reason is that in a 1980 Kennedy v. Reagan race I think Reagan would probably win and Ted Kennedy's presidency is going to be very eventful in my TL
 
Here's infobox of 2004 election. Not to spoil the surprise, do not put the president before the election. If you want, make suggestions for nominations of the PES and EPP. Just put the full version after publishing the previous infobox.

The UK election of 2010. When will the tyranny of the Labservatives end? :(


:)p: This is a joke infobox, based off the Lib Dem campaign, portraying Labour and Tories as "Labservatives".)

Next in my series. Here's Canada's next election.

Although the Liberals came out of the 2003 election as arguably the biggest winners - they had won the popular vote and were just two seats behind the governing Reform Party - Liberal leader Paul Martin proved to be an ineffective opposition leader. Waffling on several issues led to Reform releasing several ads portraying Martin as an indecisive and weak leader.

Martin spent the campaign criticizing Manning's controversial government and accusing the PC's of only being "Reform with a blue logo". While these attacks failed to stick to Manning (who had earned a reputation as the "Teflon Prime Minister") these attacks were somewhat "successful" on the PCs. Unfortunately for Martin, this actually helped Reform, as PC supporters felt that they might as well vote to keep a right-wing government in power.

Ultimately, Martin's poor performance as Leader of the Opposition cost the Liberals government, as Reform was able to increase their number of seats. The PCs, as a result of Martin's constant attacks, lost a handful of seats. Most of the major parties ignored the NDP, which proved to be advantageous, as the party was able to come up the middle in several ridings.

Martin resigned as Liberal leader shortly after the election.

A Different Twenty-Seventh

With Reform absorbed into the Conservative caucus, Campbell and the Conservatives were just short of a majority for the 2005-2008 term, and thus it was the most successful (legislation-wise) for the Conservatives since the party's merger. The Liberals elected Dominic LeBlanc to succeed Cauchon. LeBlanc continued to look for support in Quebec, seeing a way to siphon off Bloc Québécois supporters who were growing tired with the party and Marois' poor leadership.

Campbell decided to retire after ten years as prime minister, both out of exhaustion as well as because poll numbers started showing increasing dissatisfaction with her leadership. The party quickly united behind Jim Prentice, a candidate who could appease both the former Progressive Conservatives who dominated the party and the populist, socially-conservative ex-Reformers. Prentice attempted to avoid an election until early 2009, but his advisers feared this would tank the Conservative's poll numbers. So instead he waited until July, when parliament was on its summer recess, to call a general election.

From the outset, the Liberals had the advantage. Voters had grown fatigued with the Conservatives after ten years in power and, Prentice was forced into the careful balancing act of distancing himself from some of the Campbell government scandals that had begun to come to light but also remind voters that the Conservatives had overseen economic recovery and "mended Canada's regional wounds".

In the end, voters wanted change. The Liberals won the first majority government since 1988 and returned to power ten years after leaving it. The New Democrats gained from the Conservatives' dip in approval to picking up seats in the prairie provinces. The Bloc fell to a mere 4 seats and lost official party status. Marois, having lost her seat for the second time, resigned as leader of the increasingly marginalized party. The Greens, who had gained an MP when independent Blair Wilson joined their party shortly before the election, surprised everyone by getting nearly seven percent of the vote (they, however, did not gain any seats due to the scattered nature of their votes and Wilson himself lost re-election).

Still awesome, True Grit. How are Quebec-Canada relations at this point ITTL? And Quebec-American relations, of course? :p
Quebec-Canada relations aren't that great. Cauchon is trying to extend the olive branch to Canada, but Bouchard is against all types of co-operation with Canada, and Manning isn't exactly eager to embrace Quebec.

Quebec-American relations are okay, but a tad frosty. This has been the case since independence, as Clinton publicly sided with Chretien and Tobin during negotiations. Bush (since, frankly, even the separation of Quebec would have a minimal impact on US politics) is pretty much the same, and Quebecers have a really bad opinion of him thanks to Iraq.

Quebec has workable relationships with both the US and Canada, but really their closest ally is France.

I made a comparison of game consoles for my 'Beyond the Genesis' video game timeline. This is my first infobox, hope you like it.
Very nice! Is "Evolution" based on a real Sega name proposal or is it entirely your own invention? I don't recall it coming up, but this was the era when console manufacturers tended to throw out established patterns and go for something different (hence why we didn't get a UNES in OTL).

Evolution was a name that I came up. In this timeline Sega went with their American branch's proposal to use SGI technology, the same tech they passed on and that ended up becoming N64 OTL. As for the Ultra Nintendo, I went with that because I had read about the Ultra 64 working title and thought to myself "What if Nintendo just named each console in progression like that? From NES to Super to Ultra." I just liked the idea. Thanks for the response, I appreciate it.

You had similar ideas to me in that timeline I never finished then, that's pretty much what I had except I kept the name Saturn.

One question is if Nintendo had then used the Ultra prefix for UNES games like they used the 64 suffix in OTL. Now in OTL the "Super" prefix got a bit confused because although it was used to distinguish SNES games (e.g. Super Metroid, Super Castlevania IV) "Super" had also previously been used for some NES games, most obviously Super Mario Bros. Ultra hadn't really been used before though, so it would be interesting to see if we got Ultra Mario Bros. instead of Super Mario 64, etc.
