Here's a couple suggestions:

1. 1956: Eisenhower doesnt run due to health problems (this nearly happened) and its probably Nixon vs Stevenson or whomever.

2. 1964: JFK never went to Dallas and runs against Goldwater or Rockefeller

Both are 'what if' types, maybe not so popular but still interesting!

This seems like a good spot to drop a question on an existing historical scenario.

In the 1789 scenario Washington vs. Adams, it has Ben Franklin as Adams' running mate. It has Franklin's homestate as Massachusetts. Shouldn't this be Pennsylvania? It also has Washington with a Leadership of 5 and his running mate of Jefferson having Leadership +1. Does the game recognize abilities that go over 5, such as this one? Does Jefferson's +1 Leadership have any effect on the game in this case?

I'm thinking of working on the 1792 election if no one else is. I'm going to have 4 slots, the first two for the Federalist Party and the second two for the Democratic-Republican party. I'm going to set up the D-R slots so that you can choose any 2 of the 3 D-R candidates for that year. I have a couple of questions for experienced scenario designers:

1) (not game related) Why was the second Presidential election held only 3 years after the first?

2) What are some favorite resources for issues and regionalism?
