In this scenario, Vice President James Danforth "Dan" Quayle, realises he is a hinder to the 1992 election, so withdraws his name from the ballet, the republcians go with, Former Governor and Secretary of Education, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee.
This makes, billionaire Texan, Ross Perot, think twice about running against, the team, as Lamar Alexander, does most of the campaigning (without spelling Potato, wrong) giving President George, time to relax to make himself look refreshed and alert for his major events.
Lamar Alexander is able to swing Tennessee and it's 11 college votes, away from fellow Tennessean, Senator Al Gore.

The state changes from OTL were Colorado (8) Delaware (3) Georgia (13) Kentucky (8) Louisiana (9) Maine (4) Michigan (18) Montana (3) Nevada (4) New Hampshire (4) New Mexico (5) Ohio (21) - The election result map can be found below.

This victory gave the Republicans, their fourth consecutive term in office, a thing not seen since, William Taft won the 1908 election.

1993-1997 Bush Presidency
President: George H. W. Bush
Vice President: Andrew Lamar Alexander, Jr.
Secretary of State: Lawrence Eagleburger#(1993) Donald Rumsfeld*(1993-97)

Secretary of the Treasury: Nicholas F. Brady
Secretary of Defense: Richard "Dick" Cheney Σ
Attorney General: William Pelham Barr (1993) Ken Starr Θ(1993-97)
Secretary of Agriculture: Elizabeth Dole
Secretary of Health and Human Services: Louis W. Sullivan
Secretary of Transport: Admiral James D. Watkins
Secretary of the Interior: Colin Powell ψ
Secretary of Labor: Jack Kemp Ω
Secretary of Commerce: Paul Laxalt
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development: William Cohen
Secretary of Education: Lamar Alexander(1993) Laura Bush β (1993-97)
Secretary of Energy: Albert Gore (1993-1996)
Secretary of Veteran's Affairs: Ed Derwinski (1993) John McCain ~ (1993-97)
Federal Reserve Chairman: Alan Greenspan

Chief of Staff: James Baker γ
Bush appointed the following justices to the Supreme Court, in his second term.
Edward Hirsch Levi – 1993, Levi, became the 6th Jewish Justice and the first to be appointed by a Republican President.
Richard Lewis "Dick" Thornburgh – 1994​
# Following James Baker's resignation as Secretary of State to manage Bush's re-election campaign, Eagleburger served as Acting Secretary of State with Bush giving him arecess appointment for the remainder of the Bush administration, in 1993, he stept down, fearing he would not win the nomination.

* Former Secretary of Defence for Reagan, Donald Rumsfeld, was the best option for State.
Σ
Θ Ken Starr had formaly been the United States Solicitor General from 1989 to 1993, he was promoted in 1993, following the resignation of William Pelham Barr.
ψ

Ω As an economic conservative, Kemp was an influence upon the Reagan agenda and the architect of the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981, and his service in the Housing and Urban Development Department since 1988, he was the best choice for the Labor Department.

β With Lamar Alexander, stepping up to the Vice-Presidency, President Bush, needed a new Education Secretary, this would come in the shape of his daughter-in-law, via his eldest son, George W. Bush, who had formerly been a teacher and a librarian

~ Following his survival of the Keating Five scandal, fearing he might become a maverick senator, the Republican Party, chose to put him in a position, that would suit him.

γ After winning the election, Bush placed his campaigner James Baker​

Ed Miliband would appoint Alan Sked Foreign Secretary before he would appoint Alex Salmond.
 
Ed Miliband would appoint Alan Sked Foreign Secretary before he would appoint Alex Salmond.

Labour is only able to be in government if it has SNP backing, so Alex Salmond demands a top office position, he is not a "Nick Clegg" he would make sure he got what he wanted out of the relationship.

Miliband, wont want to give him the office of "Chancellor of the Exchequer" and not all of Labour believes in the SNP Defensive policies, so that's Defence Secretary out of the window.

So this leaves Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary and I believe that Ed would smartly use Salmond's foreign knowledge and experience as Scottish First Minister.
 
I like how you let up on the plausibility of Lamar 'tepid' Alexander single-handedly swinging the 1992 presidential election, but not this. :D
Because Lamar Alexander is better then Dan "Potatoe-Murphy Brown" Quayle.
Republican strategists (led by Secretary of State James Baker) viewed Quayle as a liability to the ticket and pushed for his replacement.
With Lamar being able to talk and campaign without making a fool of himself, Bush is able to rest and make himself look less tired.
Also having a good track record during Governor of Tennessee from 1979 to 1987 and Secretary of Education 1991-1993.

As for my post. Alex Salmond is "second in command" of the SNP and would demand a high position.

So out of the top three
- Chancellor of the Exchequer
- Home Secretary
- Foreign Secretary

The safest option for Salmond is Foreign Secretary, as he has the better experience on the world stage, after being First Minister of Scotland

I don't find the Alexander thing plausible either.

Why not? They only won by 20 electoral votes

On April 15, 1865, the United States of American was thrown into chaos, when news broke that President Abraham Lincoln, Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State, William H. Seward, had all been killed in a well planned political attack.

[2] Grant had implemented Congressional Reconstruction, supported Foster's views of removing the vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery, protect African-American citizenship, and support economic prosperity nationwide

Just FYI the succession act of 1792


Section 9 declared that, in the event of the removal, resignation, death, or inability of both the President and Vice President, the President pro tempore of the United States Senate was next in line of succession after the Vice President, followed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

If both the President and Vice President were removed, resigned, or died, section 10 required there to be a presidential election in December of the year in which section 9 was invoked (or in December of the next year, if there was less than two months to go until December and the presidential term was not about to expire)
