  1. OK, I'm pretty late to this, but how in the hell did you get within three points of Bush with any Democrat (let alone Kucinich)? That scenario is so ridiculously slanted in favor of Bush it's not even funny. Anyways, I didn't get a screenshot so I can't prove it, but I managed to win MA and a quarter of the popular vote as Anderson in 1980. I was so close to winning several other states and finishing ahead of Carter too, but alas, it was not to be. Now to figure out some way to stop Reagan from crushing Carter and throw the election to the house. Edit: Well, I tried again: Sooooo close bu
  2. IIRC the members of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party are almost all Lamont supporters who took over the party (which didn't have any members up to that point) in order to embarrass Lieberman and to endorse "Joe Lieberman and candidates who oppose Joe Lieberman," or something like that. I would just put Lieberman's campaign manager (who according to Google was Sean Smith) as the Chairman.
  3. So I managed to win the Dem nod in 2008 wonk edition (on hard) while winning only two states (and coming in a distant third in the vast majority of the rest of them): Hooray for bargaining in smoke-filled rooms!
  4. Got a majority government playing the NDP in the 2008 wonk scenario on hard:
  5. Yeah, pretty much this. As I said, I actually lost NH and MA (!) in the primaries. But I was able to turn it around and eek out a win by cushioning the Tehran hostages blow and spending heavily in all states that hadn't come up yet.
  6. I kept hammering on Foreign Policy, Tehran Hostages, and Reagan/Energy. I don't think I used a television ad the entire campaign, instead using newspapers for positive ads and radio for negative, and I alternated between the two. Early on they were concentrated in primary states and later the few states that I thought might be vulnerable to Reagan, but by the last month or so I had a nationwide ad up more or less constantly. I also made sure to counter would be Reagan surges with some extra ads. Other than that, I used my PIPs to get two endorsers who are inclined toward Republicans (Teamsters
  7. I gotta say, as a liberal Democrat, this was extremely gratifying: The closest state (Alaska) went for Kennedy 61-39. This was on hard with no getting other party candidates to be my VP or endorse me. Had a pretty tough primary with Carter to boot. I imagine that he got UHC passed with those coattails.
  8. Looks like he donates to pretty much everyone to me, probably for the influence. I don't know if he's a Republican, but you should keep him as one and then add Steve Jobs as a Democrat (which he is).
  9. Hah. Minority Leader Michael Bennet. I guess the Democrats could do worse than Harry Reid.
  10. Yeah, Obama would have to do absolutely everything wrong in conjunction with dozens of Congressional corruption scandals for the Republicans to pick up the House next year.
  11. I would keep Biden as VP; if Clinton got the VP slot she would cruise through the primaries. Makes it more interesting to have an open field. Also I'd add Gov. Schweitzer, it's pretty clear he's thinking of running for President, maybe replace Conrad with him? Russ Feingold or Sherrod Brown would also be good additions from the progressive wing of the party. It's your scenario of course, these are just suggestions. If you're desperate for New-Party Republicans you could add Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois and/or Gov. Thomas Campbell of California. Neither are likely to win their elections though,
  12. Got a pretty even split here in 1992. Almost won a plurality of the electoral college, and if a few states had gone a little differently I think I could have gotten a majority. Congress selected Bush.
  13. I don't buy it. I have never heard of NAFTA being a border state issue, and I've lived in one all my life. Besides, there's no way that "tweaking" NAFTA is going to make people leave Obama in droves.
  14. Since when do border states like NAFTA in its current state more than the nation as a whole?
