  1. Coughlin was big in Michigan, but only among Catholics. Michigan would certainly be for him, I think, but not simply because of Father Coughlin--disaffected union strikers would put him over the top, plus a black population just beginning to emerge.
  2. Louisiana would be SOLID Long, even against FDR. The people loved him there like no one else. Oh, and with regards to the alternate history part of this scenario: Did Huey survive assassination, or was it never attempted? If he survived the bullet, it would only add to his reputation.
  3. Looks great, but Rapidshare won't let me download it...
  4. I can't open .rar files. If you put up a .zip, I'd be glad to test it. Thanks.
  5. Thanks. Right off the bat, I notice that if you skip the primaries, the Democrats have above fifty and the Republicans around 25. Dryer, Davis and Morgan all have 0% in the Democratic primary. There are a few typos in the candidate descriptions (liberalist isn't a word). That being said, the map is fantastic, and the issues appear to be extremely thoughtful and insightful. I'll have more on gameplay later.
  6. I'd love to, but I can't open a .rar file. If you put up a .zip, I'll test it for you.
  7. You have an old version of Campaigns Forever. You need to update. http://theoryspark.com/help/political_game...on-information/
  8. I would be for putting Secretary Clinton in as an "Off by Default" candidate, though I sincerely doubt she will run. She certainly won't get SCOTUS, though--even if age wouldn't stop a Presidential run, it would stop a Supreme Court nomination.
  9. I like it, but Brad Henry is term-limited in 2010. He'll have been out of office for six years. Can I recommend Missouri Governor Jay Nixon as an alternative?
  10. No, good catch. I'll have version 1.2.1 out within the week.
  11. This has been officially revived. Right now, issues are the biggest deal. Vietnam, Health Care, Inflation and Civil Unrest will be the most important ones. Anyone care to help?
  12. Cool. Some of the more established interest groups (Americans For Democratic Action, for one) have old ratings. They give a general liberal/conservative scale. Plus, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72 painted a pretty detailed picture.
  13. I'll be reviving it within the next few weeks. 1960 was easier than I thought it would be, so I'll give 1972 the old college try.
  14. Save it to a .zip file and put it up on any of a multitude of upload sites. I used 2shared, but it really doesn't matter. Just not Rapidshare. I appreciate all the work your doing on this. The way I designed the scenario, I didn't intend on making it super realistic in terms of favorite sons. I put in only the most serious candidates, and, of course, Brown and Meyner, both of whom were featured on the Time Magazine cover off of which I pulled the Democratic candidates' pictures. This was not meant to turn into the Rube Goldberg machine that is 1968, even if 1968 is more realistic.
  15. Virginia is pretty polarized between Appalachia and the DC suburbs. The Governor's race in Oklahoma is a mile away from any federal race.
  16. I think that, initially, I'll just use the announced and potential candidates on Wikipedia, as well as Former Governor James Blanchard (Off by default). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_gube..._election,_2010
  17. Alright. I'm going to start on a Michigan Gubernatorial - 2010 scenario. I'll be sure to have a zoom on Metro Detroit.
  18. It'd be tough. We've got a lot of counties in Michigan. Eighty-three is a few more than I'm willing to do. I would do a map for anyone brave enough to attempt it.
  19. Version 1.2 is up. I didn't have trouble with the GOP Primary in 1.1, so I didn't touch it. If the problem consists with y'all, I'll e-mail Theoryspark.
  20. Yeah, things like that. -Legality (whether an amendment could change it or a revision was needed) -Family Effects -Religious Effects -Historical Parallels (is it a noble crusade for the family, or comparable to the backlash against interracial marriage?) Also, I would just have the candidates as "Yes" and "No". Set the figures up as Crusaders.
  21. Or you could focus on the individual aspects of the debate. That would make it a deeper and more meaningful scenario, in my opinion.
  22. Could you add Stephane Dion as an off-by-default? I've always been a big fan of his.
