Really excited about the future of this timeline and what will happen in the following Acts. I'm also really excited about any future timelines about your favourite presidents.
Thank you @Kennedy Forever and @C2sg! I'm so happy to hear that your excitement for Blue Skies continues. Those timeline ideas I've had for a while are something I would be happy to expand upon and talk about, if that's something you all are interested in hearing about.
@DarkDestroyer, thank you so much for your incredibly kind words! I'm touched and moved by your praise, and hope that I can keep it up for you as we move on into the future.Finally am caught up---I have been lurking for the last several months upon first discovering this--and I just wanted to say to @President_Lincoln that this is easily in the top ten fan fics that I've read, novel quality at that. Just the detail, the obvious passion, and exceptional skill put into this is just amazing. So much so that I felt compelled to sign up to the site and post personally to thank you for it, I look forward to future installments!
Al Gore, Jr., who is currently running for a U.S. House seat in his home state of Tennessee (the same House seat, in fact, which used to belong to his father), is a stubbornly moderate Democrat. While he naturally tends to fit better geographically and ideologically with the Christian Democrats, his Ivy League education have pushed him a little further to the left than some others in his wing of the party. He'd probably try to make the case that rushing to one side of the social policy spectrum is a "good way to alienate a bunch of potential voters". Like OTL, the environment is perhaps the issue Gore is the most passionate about. Though ITTL, he is also an avid opponent of torture and a war hawk due to his experiences as a POW in Cambodia.One question, where does Al Gore stand Factionally? Is he some sort of Liberal Kennedy guy or a Christian Democrat (something that his otl positions around this time would line up with nicely)
Hey @Gerbbro, please don't feel the need to apologize! I'm happy to answer as many questions as you can think of, of any and all varieties! Cliff Finch is, in fact, still running for Governor of Mississippi ITTL, a race I am happy to confirm he will win.I'm sure you're getting sick of the 'where is so and so' by know so I'll limit myself to one and refrain from further asking. Has Cliff Finch of Mississippi decided to run for Governor (in Mississippi and Louisiana governor elections are in the year before the election)?
Harold Holt not drowing really makes any TL strange.....Gough Whitlam is, in fact, still Prime Minister of Australia ITTL. He took over the torch as the 18th PM of Australia on December 5th, 1972, from Liberal Harold Holt.
Harold Holt (Liberal) - Jan. 26th, 1966 - December 5th, 1972
Gough Whitlam (Labor) - December 5th, 1972 -
Archie getting a ring makes me happy! Him not doing it for New Orleans makes me cry inside.Super Bowl IX - The Pittsburgh Steelers, led by Quarterback Archie Manning go 28 - 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Wow, Boston winning it all almost 30 years early? Definitely a bit surprising!World Series - In what is widely described as “the greatest World Series of all time”, the Boston Red Sox barely edge out the Cincinnati Reds in Game 7 to break the “Curse of the Bambino” and win their first championship in 56 years.
