    I like this scenario but if the Tate murders don't happen, does Polanski still go on to commit his crimes?

    If Eisenhower dies from a heart attack in 1958, would Richard Nixon be able to beat JFK in the 1960 election?

    According to the German Wikipedia the pro-Nazi,German Nazi member Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe (until 1918 German principality South of Hannover) wanted to become Iceland's king. He allegedly had the support. Goebbels approved but Ribbentop apperently shot him down. Does anyone have information concernimg the validity of this story ?

    i want to say he might have a better change if he was President in 1960 but that depends on what he does in the 2 years before the 1960 election. also lets add, Gore was President in 2000 (if Clinton resigned in 1998). would Gore have won in 2000.

    HE? Probably not. it might start some smoldering, but that would be about it.

    Now WP or thermite might do the trick

    What if Al Capone tried to expand to New York ? How would the established crime families react ?
