  1. I greatly admire what Warner '12 is doing for old scenarios. It seems really cool and something that i might want to do. I have been a little swamped recently, but I really think that this is interesting and plausible. I don't want to start the scenario from scratch, but I'll work with someone on these. Here are a couple ideas: 1912: One of the most exciting elections in U.S. history. The primaries would be very fun, though what to do with TR could be an issue (I'm thinking have him default on for the GOP, with R.M. LaFollete on as the progressive candidate and T.R. Default off for them). There is already a basic framework for this scenario, as someone already made a 1912 for P4E. I'm going to get started on this one and hopefully will be able to make good progress. 1932: F.D.R. wasn't the favorite to win in 1932. Al Smith and John Garner were the favorites for the Dem nomination, but F.D.R. pulled the upset with some smoth politics. Could he have done the same in a primary season? A fun scenario that could be built off of the 1936 scenario already in progress. 1948: Harry Truman is challenged from all angles. But can he win and pull off one of histories greatest upsets?
  2. My Campaigns forever has broken, but I want to help make 1972 a reality. I know a lot about the race, and I would love to help make this thing work. Please if anyone is interested post here! Let's do this thang!

    1972 Presidential Election

    I have actually read Fear and Lothing and I have done a lot of research on the election.

    1972 Presidential Election

    Also Abortion, Cities, Rural Issues, Arms Limitations, and Counter Culture. These should cover it. Thank you for jumping in on this, and let's keep it up! I have a lot of good print resources for candidates positions on the issues, so I can be very helpfull with that.

    Does the Ireland-2006 scenario exist, and if so where can I find it/can someone email it to me? This would be highly appreciated.

    CSA 1866

    While I don't agree with your premiss, I do like the idea of crafting this scenario. The party names are a little unoriginal. I think something like Democratic Party for the mainstream democrats (as you already have), the Constitutional Party (the radical dems), and the Whig Party (the moderates). As far as candidates, I don't agree with having so many generals. Also, you have so many high profile candidates running. Look more for governors and senators, rather than generals. Stevens would run as a constitutional party member, while Jeff Davis would be in the Democrats. Stevens and Davis did not like each other, with Stevens believing that Davis was too powerful.
  10. Here is my list of candidates that I think should be included (list taken from Wikipedia). I'm gonna list them in order of strength Democrats: Default On: Senator Ed Muskie (ME) Vice-President Hubert Humphrey (MN) Senator George McGovern (SD) Governor George Wallace (AL) Senator Scoop Jackson (WA) Senator Eugene McCarthy (MN) Representative Shirley Chisholm (NY) Governor Terry Sanford (NC) Mayor John Lindsay (NY) Mayor Sam Yorty (CA) Representative Wilbur Mills (AR) Senator Vance Hartke (IN) Senator Fred Harris (OK) Senator Harold Hughes (IA) Default Off: Senator Ted Kennedy (MA) Senator Walter Mondale (MN) Senator Birch Bayd (IN) Senator William Proxmire (WI) Attorney General Ramsey Clark (OH) Representative Wayne Hays (OH) Republicans President Richard Nixon (CA) Representative John Ashbrook (OH) Representative Pete McCloskey (CA) General Harold Stassen (MN) American Independent Party Representative John Schmitz (CA) Governor George Wallace (AL) Default Off Libertarian Party John Hospers (CA)
  11. You probably could, though it could be difficult. One thing I would want to avoid the campaign events that are 100%. They basically ensure that one candidate will win and one will lose. This happens in 1980, where Kennedy always looses to Carter. I think the events should be in the system, just not guaranteed, like the Canuck letter wouldn't necessarily happen.
  12. I started working on it but got way in over my head. I can help with candidate positions as i have what may be the most interesting political book ever: The 1978 Almanac of American Politics. This helps with one of the most difficult problems with making a historical scenario: candidate positions. The combination of key votes and interest group ratings should give us a good idea about Humphrey, Muskie, McGovern and any other senators i'm missing (maybe Ashbrooke too). So yeah, i would love to help.
  13. As far as Truman, I would have him as off by default, but being a strong candidate in the midwest and the farming states. I feel that the regional modifiers should essentially make him a stronger candidate than Stevenson, but still trailing Eisenhower.

    Need your help for a scenario.

    I wouldn't do Virginia. Too many small counties and cities. However the South is generally a good location for big federal vs. state difference.

    Ohio Map

    I was wondering if someone could do me a huge favor and make me a map of Ohio for President Forever. I'm planning on making an Ohio 2010 scenario though I don't know how to make maps.
  18. What you could just do is have one running mate. That being the state democratic party for all candidates. Plus, who knows if Rendell has a change of heart or if someone wants to run Rendell anyway. Plus Murphy for the Dems might run.
  19. Perhaps Santorum as an OFF candidate? He has some avid supporters out there.

    Possible Scenarios

    I would say that the senate race would be quite interesting. For inspiration on how to make a good race, try some of Zion's scenarios on the theoryspark. sight. They give a good idea that basically every candidate that could run will run, as then the scenario will still be relavent (just turn off those who didn't run) I know that it's worth putting Chet Edwards and Henry Cuellar in for the senate. They could both win statewide races.

    Pick A Scenario For Me To Do

    What's really interesting is what if Humphrey, Wallace, or Muskie had won the nomination. They probably would have lost, but how would the Democratic party have changed? McGovern may have been a candidate in '76, but maybe Scoop Jackson would have been the nominee, or maybe Mo Udall as a compromise. Where does Watergate come into play? If the results are closer, does that create even more of a scandal and does it bring the GOP to it's knees? That's why this race is interesting.
  22. The limit is reached. hcallega@yahoo.com
  23. Ooh, little harsh? Anyway, this looks like a great scenario. I think that we should do more of these state scenarios. I've tried some on my own though they usually don't get past the map.

    United States 2016

    No way Chelsea runs. Secretary Clinton would probably run. I have to believe that Andrew Cuomo would be a frontrunner to fill her vacant senate seat.
