In OTL, Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld initially forned an exploratory committee, but later declined to formally enter the race. Let's say that sometime in January 1995, Bob Dole announces he is not running for President in the 1996 Republican Primaries. Later that same year, Rumsfeld announces his candidacy. How well would Donald Rumsfeld do during ATL's Primaries? Were Rumsfeld to win the nomination, how well would he do against Bill Clinton during the General Election? Whom might Rumsfeld select as his VP nominee? I was thinking either John McCain or Carroll Campbell.
