Since this is just election season, I guess, I was messing around in Photoshop and created a screengrab from Election Night 1980 where President Nelson Rockefeller (N-New York) defeated Governor Fernando González (SL-Salado).
President Rockefeller would pass away on January 26th, 1981 before he could attend the March 4th Inauguration. Outgoing Vice President William Scranton thus became President for 37 Days, the third shortest Presidency in the nation's history. Vice President-Elect George Romney would take over the office from Scranton, and he fulfilled the entire term and retired from politics after pledging to only serve a single term.
I cant seem to find a Fernando González anywhere on the internet
Why not replace him withI wish I could say something cool like how I have a book of northern Mexican politicians from the 1970s and 1980s but I don't. He's fictional.
Why not replace him with
Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas? He could have been born in Salado instead of Mexico City because butterflies alowing him to run for president?
Why is Vic Fedeli advocating dissolving the Ontario PCs?
Your fictional character inspired me to find someone from OTL to serve as the 1980 Democratic nominee, so I looked up some northern Mexican politicians from the 1970s, and information was indeed scarce to non-existent. This was the best I could find. A fictional character is infinite times more interesting than a Wikipedia stub
I dont know mabye its just my preference to have real people but you do you Kanan because I know you can do it wellI think it's more likely someone named Fernando González would be born somewhere in Texas, Salado, Jefferson, Arizona, Chihuahua, Sonora, or California and rise the ranks to become governor than to shift around birthplaces. I really only did that for a heap of Cajuns due to the lack of an expulsion.
Where does it say so?
This timeline's Belgium has a coalition government of centre-right/right parties. While the Belgian Prime Minister is a far-right MEP in OTL, that is not the case in this timeline.

Pooh, I would have liked to know what it looked like.
I loved your Election 1980 graphic and your wikibox on They Might Be Giants.
Please do more stuff on music and more of those graphics. I'll be patient though....
