  2. It's a long way away yet, but discuss a potential UK 2015 scenario in this thread. What parties, candidates, issues, endorsers and so on should be included?
  3. Perhaps so, but while he's not exactly corrupt, he's not exactly lauded as being a man of great principle either (in the way that Eisenhower, Carter etc are).
  4. This thread was posted back in the days when (I think) the forum was a wider political community - i.e. there were other boards where current real-life politics were discussed. It was also posted in 2004, which a very good year for the Religious Right (re-election of Bush and many states passed constitutional bans on same-sex marriage). It was a different internet world in other ways of course too - no YouTube, no Twitter, Facebook was in it's infancy etc.
  5. I've started working on this again; I lost the original after a hard drive change. The original needed a lot of work done anyway IIRC.
  6. I like that list too. Here are my suggestions for attributes (only for those I know enough about though): Social Democratic Party: - Francois Hollande (France) - Le - 3, In - 3, Ex, - 3, IF - 4, Ch - 2, St - 3, De - 3 - Dilma Rousseff (Brazil) - Le - 4, In - 3, Ex, - 3, IF - 3, Ch - 3, St - 4, De - 3 - Manmohad Singh (India) Le - 4, In - 4, Ex, - 5, IF - 4, Ch - 2, St - 2, De - 3 - Jacob Zuma (South Africa) - Le - 4, In - 2, Ex, - 4, IF - 3, Ch - 4, St - 3, De - 3 - Jens Stoltenberg (Norway) Democratic Party - Barack Obama (USA) - Le - 4, In - 3, Ex, - 4, IF - 5, Ch - 5, St - 4, De -
  7. How about turning this into a decade-by-decade series? This one could be the 2010s edition, with candidates such as Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, etc. The 2000s edition could include George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Jacques Chirac, etc. The 1990s edition could include Bill Clinton, Helmut Kohl, Saddam Hussein, etc. And so on. Of course this probably couldn't all be done by one person.
  8. The attributes present a problem for some of the more historical candidates, don't they? We don't really know how good James Polk was at debating, for instance.
  9. This looks really cool, btw. I think Eugene Debs, Colin Powell and Ross Perot would also make good additions.
  10. Gingrich is one of the most important politicians of the past 30 years. He led the Republicans to their biggest congressional triumph in decades, he oversaw significant legislation such as welfare reform and he was essentially the public face of conservatism throughout most of the 1990s. Giuliani will only be remembered as having been the Mayor of New York City during 9/11. Romney could become an important and historical figure if he wins this year's election, but for now he's just a presidential candidate.
  11. How about adding State Representative Maureen Walsh in the gubernatorial scenario? She was the Republican who famously made a speech in favor of same-sex marriage. An unlikely but interesting alternative candidate.
  12. What scenario is most likely to be added to P4E2012 next? 2008 I'm guessing?
  13. Well, I suppose 270soft are assuming at this point that Obama will be re-elected. If Romney wins, however, then he'll be added almost certainly.
  14. Please can you send a copy of the GSS scenario to me? w.smith405@btinternet.com
  15. First of all, it is the 2010 election you are doing (as your post suggests)? Or the 1994 election (as your title suggests)? Second, a 2010 scenario has been created: http://www.270soft.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=10740&st=0 http://www.mediafire.com/?zg0o21jjdrj
  16. I find it quite difficult to imagine Churchill being defeated for his party's nomination. Kind of like FDR in your scenario. I suppose Disraeli and Thatcher would be at least competitive though. No one else would get close, although Powell would have some decent support in places. Pitt the Younger is certainly a possible addition. Baldwin....I'm not sure. Yes he did serve as PM on three separate occasions, and some quite noteworthy events occured (General Strike, King Edward VIII abdication, etc), but I would argue that Neville Chamberlain's premiership had a greater impact. But then, if he w
