    I mean based on this description, and the fact that Mondale and Brown should split the anti-Robertson vote, he should be alright for re-election. That being said he'll probably be the first POTUS since Wilson to win re-election with a smaller electoral college showing that his first election.

    Are you planning on making senate and house maps after the next election?

    Honestly I wanted to do a musical interlude with a mid-90d remake of California Über Alles, but I couldn’t get the inspiration to write it. I was hoping to put it right after the Kaczynski update, and it might’ve helped with predictions.

    Actually, similarly to what other people have done, I’m inclined to allow reader submissions as canon. I’d anyone wanted to rewrite this classic I’d be very happy.

    Mondale or Jerry Brown that's not gonna be a easy choice at all for many liberals.

    To be honest, I'm a little bit surprised no one has commented on the fact France is now run by a General with no elected political experience and a history of administering parts of occupied Iraq and serving as an defense advisor to Jacques Chirac.

    I honestly didn't know who that person was, so I didn't have any sort of shot of or surprise.

    Prediction: Jerry's abrasiveness and Mondale's sort of traitorous air will split the election for Robertson, leaving the next election open for N A D E R

    Indeed...

    That's fair enough. I could see myself having the same reaction.

    See, you joke about that, but when you look up pictures of Walter Mondale, he has a smile in most of them while Jerry Brown has a sort of grimace. Maybe Mondale was who Jello Biafra was trying to warn us about all along?

    OK, I lied. Here's a map showing Senate delegations at the start of the 104th Congress (January 1995)

    2 Republicans
    1 Republican 1 Rally for the Farmer

    1 Republican 1 Independent
    1 Republican 1 Democrat
    2 Democrats
    1 Democrat 1 Rally for the Farmers
    1 Democrat 1 Independent
    2 Rally for the Farmers

    Republican: 53 (+3)
    Democratic: 34 (-10)
    Rally for the Farmers: 11 (+7)
    Independent: 2 (-)

    Ed Koch in New York and Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania. Koch was elected as an independent while Specter switched from the Republicans.
