I'm shocked there aren't already. It's pretty damn suspicious.How long until there are cries of conservative conspiracy, with the assassination of a maverick with some reformist tendencies and the accession of a new president who is far more of one mind with the majority of Congress?
I have a bad feeling about this (I know this proposal was around IOTL but...)Even the most virulent anti-Beveridge publishers set aside routine criticism of the war to focus on the events of November 2nd, commonly bemoaning the poor security at such venues. "This was no less than an abysmal failure of the Secret Service organization," wrote Washington Post contributor John Travis. "Congress ought to mandate strict training for those persons vested with protecting the president. It is time to consider creating a specialized branch of the U.S. Army to carry out this task. And if we must, shield the president from direct interactivity with the public."
