    The Plot Against America, Revised and Revisited
    Charles Lindbergh/Gerald Nye 1941-1942 (Disappeared in a flight)

    1940: Def. Franklin D. Roosevelt/Henry Wallace
    The famous aviator won the presidency largely by denouncing his opponent as a warmonger who would inevitably bring the US into the Second World War. Lindbergh generally followed through on his promise to keep the US out of the war, signing agreements with the Germans and Japanese to guarantee peace. He vetoed legislation aimed at sending war materiels to assist Britain in the conflict and often praised the Nazi regime for standing up to the communist powers. Lindbergh's domestic policies were rather mediocre-he did not seek to build upon or reduce the New Deal in a meaningful way. What he did do was attempt to pass legislation that would "Americanize" the Jewish population, though this would largely fail to get off the ground. His administration came to an ignoble end in 1942, when he disappeared on a flight en route to Europe (which he had personally sought to carry out). Lindbergh's death has been a fixture in many conspiracy theories, with sympathizers claiming pro-war elements of the US government, the Jewish community, the USSR and/or the British had him killed, while detractors claim Lindbergh was a Nazi agent whose death was orchestrated by the Axis after he was deemed to have served his purpose.
    Gerald Nye/vacant 1942-1945
    Nye had been a staunch opponent of intervention into World War II, an anti-Semite and a close ally of Lindbergh. Thus it was greatly ironic that Nye would be forced to lead the US into the Second World War. The Axis, believing (erroneously) that Lindbergh's disappearance was a coup of some sort, would launch surprise attacks on US military bases in the Pacific in the case of Japan and declare war in the case of Germany. Nye would struggle to lead the US in this conflict, with Japan occupying the Philippines, Guam, the Aleutian Islands and the Hawaiian Islands thanks to poor defensive planning. US forces sent to North Africa to aid the British fared far better by comparison, with the Axis being pushed out by 1944. Hawaii would also be liberated the same year. Despite these advancements, Nye would be defeated in 1944 by a man offering a steadier hand to lead the country.
    Cordell Hull/Paul V. McNutt 1945-1953
    1944: Def. Gerald Nye/Arthur Vandenburg
    1948: Def. Thomas Dewey/Earl Warren
    Hull had been FDR's Secretary of State and promised to show the kind of steady leadership Roosevelt had in facing the Great Depression to lead the nation to victory over the Axis. Hull proved as good as his word, bringing the war to an end in 1946, albeit at a heavy cost as hundreds of thousands of US troops met their demise during the invasion of Kyushu that ultimately precipitated Japan's surrender. Additionally, most of Europe had been "liberated" by the USSR, which established satellite states in every nation east of Germany, as well as in northern Italy. Hull would have to reckon with the rise of the USSR, which he sought to handle with rebuilding aid to Europe, efforts to contain the spread of communism. To that end, Hull sent aid to anti-communist forces in Greece (who lost) and France (where they won) and sent troops to help the Republic of China fend off the threat of communist takeover (which drew into the 1950's, but managed to end in an ROC triumph). Hull also presided over the first successful nuclear test, detonating a nuclear weapon in Arizona in 1951. Hull nevertheless struggled on domestic issues. He struggled to balance the concerns of liberals in the Democratic Party about African-American civil rights with the hostility to such notions from southern segregationists. Hull committing to strict neutrality was key in preventing a walkout by the southern Democrats in 1948 and the walkout by hardcore left-wingers led by Henry Wallace fell apart after his running mate Alger Hiss was accused and convicted of being a Soviet spy. Republicans in Congress weakened Hull's efforts to bolster New Deal programs and Hull himself signed legislation limiting the power of labor unions. Well a definite improvement over his predecessor, Hull's popularity in 1952 was rather low and the Republicans made a comeback that year.
    Harold Stassen/George S. Patton 1953-1957
    Harold Stassen/William F. Knowland 1957-1961

    1952: Def. Adlai Stevenson/Strom Thurmond
    1956: Def. Lyndon B. Johnson/John F. Kennedy
    Stassen was a young, charismatic Midwesterner with strong anti-communist credentials and a healthy moderate streak. Stassen's presidency saw the emergence of the civil rights movement, which Stassen would grant support to. Stassen's endorsement helped the movement take off without falling victim to anti-communist demagoguery as Stassen, despite his backing of civil rights, would prove to be a strong opponent of communism. Stassen endorsed investigations into suspected communists and sought to ban the Communist Party in the United States. His proposal would pass Congress, but be overruled by the Supreme Court to Stassen's chagrin. Beyond that, Stassen would help the US triumph in China and saber-rattled frequently against the Soviet threat. This ultimately would culminate in the Third World War in 1958, as Soviet forces crossed the border between the two Italies and between Germany and the Netherlands. Fighting initially remained conventional until the Soviets dropped an atomic bomb on the battlefield in northern France, seeking to break the defenses of the country. However, as Stassen knew, this was the Soviets' first nuclear weapon. With several dozen weapons in the American arsenal, Stassen swiftly was able to launch a mass nuclear strike on the USSR, destroying Moscow, Leningrad and Stalingrad. This attack broke the USSR, led to the end of their puppet states and made Stassen among the most reviled men in history. Stassen would spend the remainder of his term focused on domestic issues and sending aid to the countries impacted.
    Curtis LeMay/Barry Goldwater 1961-1965
    1960: Def. Pat Brown/J. William Fulbright
    The hero of the Third World War both won and lost in a landslide. LeMay won on the strength of his military career and many Americans were not fully aware of his exact political views. As it turned out, LeMay was a staunch conservative like his running mate and was skeptical if not outright opposed to the New Deal. LeMay's efforts to cut the government down in size happened to intersect with the beginnings of a postwar slump, which many blamed on LeMay's policies. LeMay additionally alienated both sides of the civil rights debate by backing throroughly watered-down legislation that segregationists saw as a threat and activists viewed as meaningless. LeMay also faced controversy over his handling of communist insurgents in Cuba, as he threatened to nuke Havana in the event that they came to power. While he backed off from this threat (instead choosing to merely send in Marines), the damage to his reputation was done.
    George Wallace/Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. 1965-1973
    1964: Def. Curtis LeMay/Barry Goldwater, Hubert Humphrey/John Lindsey
    1968: Def. Barry Goldwater/George W. Romney
    Wallace had made a name for himself as a flaming segregationist and staunch New Dealer in Alabama. Wallace's presidency saw the Cuban War grind on, Europe face turmoil from neo-communist and neo-Nazi insurgencies and other foreign threats increase. Wallace earned widespread admiration for adroitly handling many of these issues, triumphing in Cuba, crushing the uprisings in Europe and helping Israel fend off an invasion by Arab states. Wallace also expanded the welfare state, implementing national healthcare and ushering in new environmental regulations. On the other hand, Wallace opposed civil rights initiatives and cultural liberalism in general, with former Vice President Goldwater running to Wallace's left on civil rights, women's rights and drug policy in 1968. Wallace's presidency, despite the poor handling of civil rights, was generally seen by most as a successful one.
    Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr./John Rarick 1973-1977
    1972: Def. Nelson Rockefeller/Gerald Ford, John Lindsey/George McGovern
    Kennedy, a member of a prominent political family and the first Catholic president, was one of the least successful presidents of the modern era. Kennedy held many of the views of his father, an isolationist who nearly crossed party lines to back Lindbergh in 1940. Kennedy sought to scale back the US role in the world, citing communism's defeat abroad. However, Kennedy's withdrawel from Cuba proved to be too hasty and communists would manage to make a comeback in the region and additionally would mount terrorist attacks on the US. Kennedy's cutting of aid to Europe led to the rise of neofascist governments in France and Italy, which led to escalating tensions between them and the more democratic bloc led by Germany and Britain. Kennedy's opposition to civil rights, which he shared with his predecessor, would cause more issues than Wallace's stance did, as he attempted to violently crack down on civil rights groups protesting in the aftermath of the death of civil rights leader Malcolm Little in 1974. The brutality of the crackdown appalled many and, while the economy was more to blame for his reelection defeat, many believe Little's death was the moment Kennedy lost the country.
    Mark Hatfield/John Tower 1977-1985
    1976: Def. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr./John Rarick
    1980: Def. Robert Byrd/Henry Jackson
    Hatfield's election was widely seen as a repudiation of Kennedy and his administration would solidify the status of the two parties. Hatfield combined general fiscal conservatism (albeit not absolutist) with progressive stances on most social issues, passing renewed civil rights legislation. This of course led to increased violence for a time in the south, including a revival in the Ku Klux Klan under the leadership of David Duke. However, Hatfield's administration successfully pursued civil rights policies to the point that even 1980 Democratic nominee Robert Byrd at least in public repudiated the segregationist policies of the past. Hatfield's tax cuts (bringing the top rate from 85% down to 60%) and mild deregulation were credited with sparking economic growth. Hatfield also navigated challenges on foreign affairs, as the "New Axis" of France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Poland threatened to launch a war against the more democratic nations of Germany, Britain, Austria, Belgium and the like. Hatfield would sign defensive agreements with the anti-fascist nations of Europe, which would halt the threats of war long enough for the neofascist bloc to begin to unravel. Hatfield was also forced to launch an intervention into Siberia to help reeestablish order and sustain the population as an unusually cold winter drove thousands of Russians to attempt to illegall cross the Bering Strait into Alaska in 1983. Hatfield was a generally successful president, but nevertheless his party would fail to win in 1984.
    Dick Lamm/Robert Casey 1985-1993
    1984: Def. James Baker/Jack Kemp
    1988: Def. Shirley Temple-Black/Jerry Brown
    Lamm was the first "New Democrat" president-that is, a Democrat who rejected the segregationist ideologies of the past in favor of immigration control, pseudo-isolationism and economic populism. Lamm's presidency saw the US implement strict immigration controls, capping legal immigration at 750,000 annually and funding a wall along the Mexican-American border (begun in 1986 and finished in 1992). Lamm also would seek to renegotiate the terms of defensive agreements with Britain and other European nations, convincing them to agree to increase their defense spending so the US could cut theirs to focus on more domestic programs. Lamm's most popular program was the AmeriJobs program implemented in 1988 when the economy began to slump. AmeriJobs helped provide unemployed Americans with temporary employment on various government infrastructure programs and, while decried by Republicans as a boondoggle, did earn Lamm a significant amount of popularity overall. Lamm also backed efforts to ban abortion nationwide (largely at the behest of his vice president rather than conviction on his part). However, this effort failed, but remained a key Democratic policy wish. Lamm's presidency was also the first Democratic presidential campaign since the 1940's to actively court African-American voters (a solidly Republican demographic since the Wallace years) and he successfully made that community's votes almost evenly split, even as other minority groups such as Asians and Hispanics mostly voted Republican.
    Dick Gephardt/Douglas Wilder 1993-1997
    1992: Def. Bill Weld/John McCain
    Gephardt largely continued the policies of the Lamm administration and presided over the collapse of the last remaining neofascist government in Italy in 1994. However, Gephardt would soon find himself having to reckon with a new threat: neo-Sovietism. This threat was largely the result of basically abandoning the former USSR to their fate for nearly forty years and saw the self-proclaimed "Second Stalin" (born Aleksandr Dugin) reunify multiple statelets west of the Ural Mountains and embark on attempts to reclaim control of Belarus, Latvia, the Ukraine and the Caucasus countries. Gephardt would launch air strikes on Dugin's forces, but largely fail to halt their advance. Gephard consequently would lose in 1996 to someone the country believed could win the war.
    Colin Powell/Mike Curb 1997-2005
    1996: Def. Dick Gephardt/Douglas Wilder
    2000: Def. Robert Casey/Mike Huckabee, Mike Gravel/Ron Paul
    Powell was the nation's first African-American president and had served with distinction in Hatfield's Siberian intervention and thus was seen as a solid choice to defeat Dugin's New Soviet Union. Powell's presidency did see success in halting Dugin's forces from advancing and ultimately pushing them back. However, the war quickly entered a stalemate, as American and allied forces managed to prevent New Soviet advances but could not advance themselves. This ultimately provoked the rise of a peace movement in the US, favoring negotiation with Dugin rather than continuing to fight them. However, Powell rejected these calls (as did most Americans at the time) and stayed the course in Russia. However, Powell's failure to take decisive measures would mean the war would continue to grind on past the end of his term. Meanwhile, domestically, Powell had virtually no accomplishments to his name beyond mild tax code changes and the implementation of a federal assault weapons ban, which passed relatively uncontroversially.
    Lisa Murkowski/Lincoln Chafee 2005-2009
    2004: Def. Ben Nelson/Gary Bauer, Mike Gravel/Ron Paul
    The first female president fared worse than Powell did by far. The war against the New Soviet Union began to go south, as Dugin's armies once again gained ground in the Ukraine. Additionally, the economy tanked dramatically in her first year in office and failed to turn around in a reasonable timeframe. Murkowski soon found herself beleagured on all sides and facing a Democratic opponent who claimed to have the key to ending the war triumphantly. Coupled with the failing economy, Murkowski would lose in a landslide, even being outperformed by that year's Peace Party nominee in the electoral college.
    Wesley Clark/Joe Manchin 2009-2017
    2008: Def. Ron Paul/Ralph Nader, Lisa Murkowski/Lincoln Chafee
    2012: Def. Jon Huntsman/Rick Scott, Jim Webb/Chuck Hagel
    Clark, like Powell, was a general and a relatively good one. For this reason, many hoped Clark would have what it took to win the war on the New Soviet Union. However, Clark's solutions to the war would prove to be terrifying. Clark used nuclear weapons on the New Soviet Union, hoping Stassen's methods would succeed once again. However, Dugin's paranoia meant that he was able to avoid dying in any of these attacks, which further radicalized the Soviets. Furthermore, these tactics earned the US hostility from the rest of the world, with the UN nearly voting to impose sanctions on the country. This only increased following Clark's implementation of totalitarian policies to wage the war on the New Soviet Union, opening up internment camps for "disloyal" (read: antiwar) Americans. These camps, while ultimately closed down following a Supreme Court ruling in the case of Paul v. US, were open from 2011 to 2015 and were a black mark on the reputation of the whole United States. Clark's efforts to address the ongoing recession amounted to shifting the economy into gear for "total war" on the New Soviet Union, a strategy which unfortunately would fail to provide the necessary relief. Additionally, Clark was forced to cut the budget for healthcare and AmeriJobs to continue funding the war effort. By 2016, the war seemed to have no end in sight and the Democrats were widely unpopular. Even so, few could have expected the results to occur.
    Dean Barkley/Gary Johnson 2017-
    2016: Def. Joe Manchin/Harold Ford, Jr., Jeff Flake/Susan Collins
    The Peace Party, after nearly twenty years of work, finally broke the stranglehold of the Democrats and Republicans on the White House. Barkley came to office promising "peace with honor," the restoration of civil liberties infringed by the Clark administration and holding Clark administration officials accountable for potential war crimes. Barkley’s success so far has been mixed-on one hand, he has gotten sanctions relief from those nations that sought to embargo the US over the Clark administration's conduct, the economy has begun to turn around and the US has entered into peace talks with Dugin's regime. On the other hand, talks have been proceeding slow and at the moment, US troops continue to die in the Ukraine and Caucasus. Only time will tell if Barkley can negotiate an end to America's longest war.

    A while ago I started making an analogue with Canada as the UK. However, that turned out to be harder then expected so I gave up. However, I do still have that unfinished list, and I thought I should post it (besides, maybe this will inspire me to finish it):

    Prime Ministers of Canada:
    1935-1945: William Lyon Mackenzie King (Liberal)

    1935: R.B. Bennett (Liberal-Conservative), John Blackmore (Social Credit), J.S. Woodsworth (CCF), H.H. Stevens (Reconstruction)
    1940: Robert Manion (National Government/Liberal-Conservative), William Herridge (New Democracy/Social Credit), J.S. Woodsworth (CCF)

    1945-1951: M.J. Coldwell (CCF)
    1945: William Lyon Mackenzie King (Liberal), John Bracken (Progressive Conservative), Solon Earl Low (Social Credit)

    1949 (Minority): Louis St. Laurent (Liberal), George Drew (Progressive Conservative), Solon Earl Low (Social Credit)
    1951-1954: Louis St. Laurent (Liberal)
    1951: M.J. Coldwell (CCF), Solon Earl Low (Social Credit), George Drew (Progressive Conservative)

    • The CCF sweeps to an unexpected majority in 1945.
    • King resigns and is replaced by his hand picked successor Louis St. Laurent.
    • The CCF government introduces many Left-wing reforms, but as any first time government does, they have growing pains. The red scare hysteria of this period does them no favours either. They are cut to a minority in 1949.
    • St. Laurent's anti-communist campaign essentially squeezes the PCs, and they end up only 10 or so seats ahead of Social Credit.
    • The Liberals win the 1951 election but lose the popular vote.
    • The PCs fall into 4th place behind Social Credit, a historic first (And I think with time, they'd be forced to merge with the Liberals).
    • St. Laurent is forced out by scandal.

    President of the United States

    1993 - 2001: William J. Clinton (Democratic) / Albert A. Gore, Jr.
    1992: def. James E. Carter (Progressive) / Howard B. Dean III, George H. W. Bush (Republican) / J. Danforth Quayle
    1996: def. Antonin G. Scalia (Republican) / Robert J. Dole


    Clinton moved from the Governor's Mansion to the White House, enthusiastic to reform the federal government. However, his administration was overshadowed by foreign policy crises, as war broke out in the Old World. He scrapped his way to re-election, just holding off the fierce campaign of Justice Scalia. His second term was dominated by war and his health. The United States intervened overseas, eventually seeing victory in the nation's most significant military encounter in a generation. However, the President's health was failing, and his wife became de facto Acting President for much of his second term, although this fact was hidden from the public.

    2001 - 2003: John R. Kasich, Jr. (Republican) † / William F. Weld
    2000: def. Richard F. Celeste (Democratic) / Barack H. Obama


    A dark horse candidate from Ohio, Kasich defeated Dick Celeste, as he campaigned to reverse many of Clinton's war-time special measures. Though the strong economy led Kasich to quick popularity, the nation was shocked by his unexpected death in the third year of his presidency. It would be learned later that there were uncovered scandals in his administration, which would have dramatically decreased his standing if they had been known about during his lifetime.

    2003 - 2009: William F. Weld (Republican) / Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.
    2004: def. William B. Richardson III (Democratic) / Hubert H. "Skip" Humphrey III, Russell D. Feingold (Progressive) / Dennis J. Kucinich


    A taciturn Brahmin who had established a reputation for seriousness and conservatism as Governor of Massachusetts, Weld oversaw a time of economic prosperity, and easily won re-election, as a left-wing third-party candidate split the opposition. He was admired by advocates of limited government, and also made strides for racial equality that were not always fully supported by his party. He surprisingly elected not to run for a second full term in office.

    2009 - 2013: Willard M. Romney (Republican) / Ben Nighthorse Campbell
    2008: def. Joseph R. Biden (Democratic) / Thomas A. Daschle


    Weld was succeeded by Mitt Romney, a successful businessman and Commerce Secretary, who had been one of the most visible members of the Weld cabinet. However, the economy entered a sharp recession in the first year of the Romney administration, and though efforts were launched to attempted to reverse the economic contraction, they were mostly unsuccessful, and may even have made the situation worse. Romney was sharply blamed for the hardships seen across the country, and he was not able to win re-election, as the decade of Republican domination came to an end.

    Ah I see that makes sense. Forgot FDR was VP in 1920

    Obama's a little young to be a VP nominee in 2000 IMO.
