    Party politics in the US are much more complicated than ONE PARTY LIB ONE PARTY CON.

    Each party has a specific platform that generally encompasses and coincides with other groups. For example the Republicans are pro business party. Always have been and they always will be. The Democrats have ever since Jackson been big government populists. They attempt to appeal to the majority no matter who that might be. From their original Agrarian roots to now their very urban platform. The Republicans and Democrats are simply coalition parties of different regions and groups.

    I wouldn't recommend using OTL cold war classifications. I think in many ways both modern OTL liberals and conservatives would be appalled by Hitler. The closest I can reveal is that you can very much call Hitler a nationalist. But remember, what it means to be a nationalist in Latin America vs. the Balkans vs North America differs.

    He's not gonna go full Peron if anyone was wondering (that would be ASB in America).

    He's clearly been spending far too much time with Patton.

    For some reason the alerts for this thread haven't popped up so I'm a few pages behind. I'm a bit late to the party but congrats on the third place Turtledove! This thread is a ton of fun and very well-written and researched.

    Another hint at who Hitler's eventual spouse could be?

    Her family hails from a land that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

    *scoff* You guys are crap at guessing. :openedeyewink: My own guess is that Hitler's future better half will be (1) a natural-born American citizen, (2) "white ethnic", and (3) a good churchgoing Catholic like her hubby-to-be.

    And (4): she'll come from a wealthy, influential family that can really lend the Senator from Texas a hand in his Presidential ambitions.

    Now, good people, an exercise for the class: what families in 1920's America can meet all four of those qualifications?

    Yeah, honestly I was thinking a Kennedy more than anything. Just which Kennedy is the answer...

    Edit: Patrick Joseph had two sisters born in 1892 and 1898, the former getting married in 1927 and the latter in 1924. Maybe one of them could become Hitler's wife.

    But hey, that's just a theory. A HISTORY theory.
