  3. ELECTION 2012 The election of the first woman president amidst a time of political turmoil gave citizens hope in President Hillary Clinton. Her first actions were more bailouts for failing companies across the country. A year into her presidency, the Affordable Care Act was signed, a bill simillar to now- Secretary of State Barack Obama proposed during his presidential race. The bill was heavily opposed by conservative Republicans. The unpopularity of the act, as well as big government policies under Republican and Democratic administrations, led to the growth of the Tea Party movement, w

  6. ELECTION 2008 The Powell Administration was looked at in the beginning as a beam of optimism for the country. The first black president was a respected military leader, who pledged to try and get the support of the UN to build a new, democratic government in Iraq. These dreams slowly started to die out however, when HUrricane Katrina hit in August of 2005, FEMA's response was horrible, as money had been redirected to the Defense Department during the Biden Administration. Despite those facts, Powell was blamed for the lackluster response and black citizens of America would refer to him as
  7. ELECTION 2004 President Biden would start his term by changing the tax code to a progressive tax, rather than the flat 15% system under President Buchanan. Biden planned to put focus on issues such as domestic policy, but on September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked 4 planes, crashing 2 into the World Trade Center and destoying it in NYC, on crashed into the Pentagon in DC< and another was crashed by passengers attempting to overpower the hicjackers in Pennsylvania. Almost 3000 people would die. President Biden would soon declare war on Afghanistan, for harboring Osama Bin Laden, the lea
  8. ELECTION 2000 President Pat Buchanan started his presidency as one of the least liked people in America. Throughout the campaign trail, he was accused of facism, racism, sexism, and homophobia. This would lead to massive demonstrations against him throughout the country. Much of Buchanan's policy wouldnt get passed, almost all his vetos were overturned, but the biggest success of his presidency was a flat tax bill, which put the income tax down to 15% across the board. On foreign policy, Buchanan opted to stay out of events around the world and focused at home. Democrats and Repulicans wa
  9. ELECTION 1996 On the second day of Jimmy Carter's second term, he became the first president since FDR to visit Guantamano Bay, where he personally would sit down with Saddam Hussein and discuss peace in the Middle East. Months of peace talks would ensue, and on July 21st, 1995, an agreement was finally settled between the United States, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait in Atlanta, Georgia. On Feburary 23rd, 1993, a car bomb was set off underneath the World Trade Center in NYC. An assassination plot against former President Bob Dole was uncovered by the US government, which was organized b
  10. ELECTION 1992 President Dole's first moves in office included a bail out plan and a temporary semi auto rifle ban. Dole would also extremely harshly condemn the massacres in China's Tiannamen Square. By the end of his first year in office, the Berlin Wall would fall, marking a end of Communist rule in East Germany, and creating a path towards unification. Dole rose the minnimum wage to $4.25, continue meetings with Gorbachev, and expand the drug war. The Soviet Union would collapse a year later, ending the Cold War. In 1991, Dole responded to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait with military for
  11. ELECTION 1988 Ronald Reagan's second term consisted of more foreign policy than anything else, with him working alongside Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, to try and ease the tension between the two nations, even though the Soviet system was starting to crack while Gorbachev was implementing reform. Reagan would put an embargo on Nicaragua. The Nicaraguans became the center of attention when news broke of the Iran Contra Scandal, where members of Reagan's administration were selling arms to Iran to fund Contra rebels in Nicaragua. this led to a decrease in Reagan's popularity, and both h
  12. ELECTION 1984 An hour after Reagan was inaugurated, the Iran hostages were set free and returned home to the United States. Two months after that, Reagan would survive an assassination attempt, which would send his approval ratings skyrocketing. Reagan would continue his term by proposing tax and budget cuts, as well as nominating Sandra Day O'Connor to be the first woman to sit on the Supreme Court. Military budgets were expanded however, and by 1984, tensions with the Soviet Union were their highest since the Cuban Missile Crisis. REPUBLICAN PRIMARY President Reagan's strong
  13. ELECTION 1980 President Carter's first full day in office consisted of him pardoning all draft dodgers from the Vietnam War, something most conservatives found to be disgraceful. A few months later, he would call for more efforts in conservation of energy, admist a 4 years riddled by gas shortages. Carter said in his multiple addresses to the country that he wished to change the foreign policy from anti-communism to human rights, and he showed up on this by helpimg mediate the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt. He would also sign the SALT II treaty with the Soviet Union, reducin
  14. ELECTION 1976 After the turbulent days of the Watergate Scandal, President Hiram Fong pledged that he would not seek his own term as president in the next election, but would work on restoring dignity to the office of the presidency, as well as healing the nation He started this move by his scond day in office, by nominating one of the most ppopular politicians in the country, House Minority Leader Gerald Ford, to the Vice Presidency. However, the steady popularity dropped when after a month in office, he would pardon former President Nixon, a move att the time that was seen as preventing
  15. ELECTION 1972 President Nixon's first move in office was announcing a withdrawl from Vietnam, saying he planned to start by bringing home 25,00 troops by the end of August. History was made in July 1969 as the first men were landed on the moon, both of them Americans. Nixon would also reform the draft. A year later in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency would be created. Animosity in his own party began to form when Nixon describes himself as a Keynesian, believeing that more spending could help the economy. In response to this and normalizing relaations with Communist China, Congre
  16. NOTE - 1972 featured the first nationwide primary. From this point out, I will include the Delegate totals for said primaries this point onward
  17. ELECTION 1968 Lyndon Johnson's third term started off strong with his advances in Civil Rights, and his Great Society programs. However these were overshadowed by the war in Vietnam, in which Johnson kept sending more and more troops, more and more people were dying, and the war was quickly being lost. Johnson ended up facing his former AG and now Senator Robert Kennedy (also the younger brother of the late VP Kennedy), Senator Eugene McCarthy, and DC Delegate Channing Phillips. Johnson started out as the strongest candidate, but Kennedy made a major jump in campaigning, and beat out John
  18. ELECTION 1964 Johnson's second term began in complete failure with the Bay of Pigs invasion, in which US trained Cuban rebels landed at the Bay of Pigs to try and overthrow the Castro regime. The Soviets also put the first man into space, while the US followed a month later. Johnson pledged support for the space program, and promised the landing of man on the moon by the time 1970 came about. The construction of the Berlin Wall also began. Almost a year and a half later, the Soviets moved nuclear missiles into Cuba. This sparked a crisis that almost led to world war 3, but the influence o
  19. ELECTION 1960 President Johnson wanted to continue the cause of civil rights, and signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1957, the first civil rights bill since reconstruction. Vice President Kennedy also won a Pulitzer Prize for his book Profiles in Courage. The Cold War got more tense with the launch of Sputnik, the first artificial satellite, by the Soviet Union, marking the start of the Space Race. Alaska and Hawaii soon after became US states. Cuba's government was also overthrown by Communist leader Fidel Castro. The Republicans looked for a comeback against the powerful Johnson. C
  20. ELECTION 1956 President Dirksen was able to live to his promises when he was able to get an armistice between the North and South Koreans within his first 6 months in office. Dirksen also backed the overthrow of Iranian leader Mohommed Mossadegh and put in place the Shah of Iran as its leader. Dirksen also nominated Earl Warren to the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and Warren delivered on changes to civil rights in the case of Brown v. Board of Education, ending school segregation in the United States. a year later, Claudette Colvin and Rosa Parks would refuse to give up

  22. ELECTION 1952 President Vandenberg started off his term by doing one of Truman's campaign promises by desegregating the Armed Forces, allowing blacks and whites to serve together. Things seemed great for the President until his popularity went down as the People's Republic of China was founded and defeated the Republic of China, with them going into exile on Taiwan. The new Communist China soon after became allied in the Soviet Union. The USSR also achieved getting an atomic bomb, which solidified a Cold War between the US and USSR. The loss of China led to Vandenberg declaring war on Nor
  23. ELECTION 1948 President Truman was unexpectedly thrust into the position of the presidency with the death of Franklin Roosevelt. When he got into office, he was informed of the Manhattan Project and the nuclear bombs the US had secretly developed. He considered using them on Berlin, but the suicide of Adolf Hitler ended the war in Europe a month after becoming president, so Truman set his sights on Japan. After bombing the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the war ended in September of that year. Truman enacted the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall Plan to help rebuild after the war. He al
  24. ELECTION 1944 The world is steeped in war. Germany has taken over France and invaded the Soviet Union, while Japan keeps making gains in the Pacific. This all comes to a head, when on December 7, 1941, when Japan bombed the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Roosevelt asked for a declaration of war the next day. US involvement in the war looked like a lost cause until the battle of Midway, where we successfully fought off the Japanese forces. By the time 1944 rolled around, the Allied Powers were on their way to victory in Europe, after the successful D Day invasion of Normandy in Eur
  25. ELECTION 1940 Roosevelt has started off his new term under intense controversy, as his court packing scandal brings down his popularity, making him look more hungry for power. Roosevelt also signed neutrality acts, to make the US neutral in terms of the wars in Asia and Europe, even though he continues to ship weapons to the British. Roosevelts Agricultural Adjustment Act does nothing to help the starving impovershied of the country, as it orders farmers to burn crops as a price control. War came to Europe in 1939, as German dictator Adolf Hitler invaded Poland. Roosevelt still pledges ne
