The 2004 United States presidential election was the 55th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 2, 2004. The incumbent Democratic President Joseph Isadore Lieberman and his running mate Vice President John McCain were elected to a second term, defeating the Republican ticket of John Ellis "Jeb" Bush, the Governor of Florida and his running mate George Pataki, Governor from New York.
Following the September 11 attacks, the death of President Albert Gore, and the destruction of the White House, the Twin Towers and significant damage to the Pentagon, Lieberman ascended to the position of President of the United States. While immensely popular early in his term, by 2004 he was significantly unpopular in his own party, and became the first incumbent President since Carter to have to campaign against his primary challenge, Paul Wellstone.
Lieberman is notable for becoming the first Jewish President of the United States in 2001, and in 2004 he became the first Jewish person to be elected President. By 2004, the main issues were the wars in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Libya, and Sudan. President Liberman won by sweeping the Northeastern states and several Western states, becoming the first Democrat President to win no states in the former Confederacy.
Jeb Bush, brother of 2000 nominee George Bush, and son of President George H. W. Bush, ran a centrist campaign and attempted to appeal to moderate Democrats (even attempting to persuade Zell Miller to switch parties the same way John McCain had before he was appointed Vice-President). After that failed, and faced with a potential upheaval at the Republican convention, he picked New York Governor George Pataki, and invested significant time and money in winning his state. To this day it is the last time a Republican has won more than 45% of the vote in New York.
Doubt that Furgal would stick with LDPR given how Degtyarev effectively disowned him, maybe he could lead a breakaway Second Far Eastern Republic though.Come 2031, the aptly named President-for-life of Russia Vladimir Putin passed in his sleep, understood to be the end result of a dangerous Propofol- cocktail administered by his personal physician to aid the worsening effects of Parkinson's. What followed was a chaotic power struggle not seen since the death of Stalin years before, only this time it ended with a schism; oligarch and Kremlin insider Igor Rotenberg on one side, leader of the ultranationalist LDPR and alleged murderer Sergei Furgal on the other, and undermining both, the duo of Ilya Yashin (Russian dissident and PARNAS member) and Leonid Razvozzhayev (Ukranian activist and former kidnapping victim by Russian forces). Less than a fortnight after Putin's passing Russia had exploded into open civil war.
Hmm.Yang's planned Unilateral Disarmament Pact was put on hold and the Republican's new talking point was how the President had paraded soldiers brought back from the Middle East only to now face mass redeployment to muddy, cold Europe.
Fuuuuuuck Malofeyev would've been such a good choice. Do you think people would mind if I edited him in?Doubt that Furgal would stick with LDPR given how Degtyarev effectively disowned him, maybe he could lead a breakaway Second Far Eastern Republic though.
If we're doing a dystopian world anyhow, Malofeyev might be more up your alley.
How is the rest of the post-Soviet sphere taking it?
I have no idea what spain has to do with any of this.
Further to this, a rundown of the different faces of the Master.
We are a few days away from Ossoff being sworn in as Senator, and this possibly becoming a reality.2040 United States presidential election
There's a bunch of lore I made for this but I don't feel like typing it out right now, so I'll just leave it at this for now. Re-uploaded with major fixes to the popular vote margin since I heavily fudged it before, the original post has been deleted.
