    Cool timelines. I'm actually a fan of My Fellow Americans, The Simpsons, and Jack Ryan.

    One thing I would mention is Reagan being assassinated. In My Fellow Americans, doesn't Russel Kramer mention that his Constellation wristwatch was given to him by Gorbachev, and the only other person with one is Ronald Reagan? Oh, also...Bill Haney is from Texas rather than New York.

    Also, in the Tom Clancy book Executive Orders, I believe they mention something in the opening chapters about Reagan winning (or maybe presiding) over the Cold War.

    Also, about the Tom Clancy timeline: I think according to the Clancy timeline Fowler became president in 1993 (like Clinton OTL), and Durling became president in 1994. That would make Ryan become president in 1996 (because it's mentioned that the GOP and DNC primaries are only weeks away from beginning). Also, Jack, like his pal and vice president Robbie Jackson, is a registered Independent. You can find that in both Debt Of Honor and Executive Orders.


    Like I said, though, cool timelines. I'll keep an eye on this thread and see what develops.

    My fellow Americans, one of my favourite films....
    "Our dreams are like our Children"
    "I just have to ask Russell, when you dance with a panda, who leads".
    "Good job, I am not Gerald Ford or I would be lying at the bottom of the steps by now".
    I would agree with the comment about Reagan and Gorbachev, and Kramers watch.
    Also by the time of the events of the film, Nelson Mandella seems to be dead when Douglas says "Mandella was a great man" rather than "Mandella is a great man".

    As am I, although I'm not as familiar with all of Clancy's works. The Simpsons timeline was mostly based on the episode "Bart to the Future," which featured President Simpson, and showed references to Presidents Ted Kennedy, Trump, and Bono. John-John-John Kennedy, a reference from "Lisa's Wedding" (as was WWIII) was thrown in when I came up a term short. I considered throwing in Lenny Leonard instead (from a dream of Homer's), but his other future appearances made that unlikely.

    Schwarzeneggar is from the movie, Cletus as VP from the episode "Future-Drama," and other references from other episodes. I'm sure I missed some post-2005 references to George W. Bush, and any future references to Obama which will totally throw this timeline off.

    Thanks for the correction. For some reason, I didn't think Haney's state was revealed and just threw in New York as a reference to Saturday Night Live. Matthews being from DC is a reference to John Heard's birthplace. I remember the reference to Gorbachev, but forgot about the Reagan reference. In my wish to place the events of the movie in 1995-1996 (when it was made and appears to be set), I had to have Kramer elected in '84, and Bush was referenced, so it seemed easy to make a POD at '81 (I swear I don't have a Reagan-assassination fetish). The reference to Bush though could have been to him as a top-Washington official and VP known to Margaret Kramer, and Reagan could've retired after one term, leaving the '84 Republican primary open for a little-known Ohio Senator to dark horse his way in.

    I based it mostly off of Wikipedia, which seems to have specific dates on these events. I originally had Ryan and Jackson as Dems only because they were in Democratic administrations (a John Tyler/Andrew Johnson situation), but I changed one without changing the other. I'll fix that. I assumed that Bush was mentioned as President at one point, so I did the easy assassination scenario, but I could be wrong about that.

    Cool, thanks.

    That just proves that My Fellow Americans exists in some upside-down world. Reagan is alive ("Reagan has one...") and Mandela is not. Of course when Douglas was President ('89-'93), Mandela would've been released from prison after 27 years and gain international recognition. So Kramer's Gorbachev remarks and Douglas's Mandela remarks perfectly fit the timeline.
