    Ah! An error on my part, my apologies. Thank you for pointing it out, I'll be sure to fix it ASAP! :) I have, though I may have fallen behind a bit due to my schedule lately. I remember thoroughly enjoying the TL. It's not every day that you get a Eugene McCarthy as President TL, despite his actual candidacy and momentum back in '68. History has not been kind to McCarthy, and given some of his policy positions and personality, maybe that's justified. I feel like Give Peace a Chance gave McCarthy a fair shake and is very well written. I look forward to reading more of it in the future.

    Thanks, @QTXAdsy! I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to respond yet; I did in fact get your PM. :) Thank you for being so patient, and I'll be sure to take a look at it and respond sometime today.

    Rooting for Glenn here. I think Udall will get shot now.

    Udall reminds me of a one-eyed Abe Lincoln, so he has my vote.

    Nice chapter @President_Lincoln

    Goodbye LBJ.

    I think Udall/Glenn would be a strong ticket here.

    Glenn would be a good running mate for anybody IMO.

    I'd probably vote Chisholm as a protest vote but then again I'm literally a socialist.

    ...

    XD

    Those are some damn fine last words, and a fitting end for a man like LBJ. A shame his health still failed him, but after all that smoking and the stress of running a set of titanic election campaigns in the face of a fragmenting party, it's kinda no surprise, sadly. :(

    When you combine his family history (several of his relatives died before they were 60, IIRC, of heart attacks) and the stress he was under, it was bound to happen sooner or later...

    J Edgar Hoover's Smash is quite powerful: so is LBJ's.

    Little late to the Update Party but that one line right there is classic LBJ. I can literally imagine him saying that (granted not because of a heart attack, more along the lines of him ruining a beef roast or something)

    Why choose, when we can have Udall/Bentsen for '77 or Bentsen/Udall.

    Bonus points if MLK conducts JFK's funeral service.

    Also if, come the 80's, if a version of the Central Park five occurs, he stands up for them.

    And if he lives into the 90s hopefully providing a good death blow to OJ and his cutthroat lawyer team (I just watched a documentary on the case and I’m pretty livid at how thuroughly the Lawyers used Race as a divider)

    He could give the eulogy at JFK's funeral, though...
