Inspired by a recent thread on here, I've dug out one I was going to use for an HoS list challenge on Manifest Destiny but never quite finished.

Tippecanoe and Article II

Presidents of the United States

1837 - 1841: Martin Van Buren (Democratic)
1836 (with Richard Mentor Johnson) def. William Harrison (Whig), Hugh White (Whig), Daniel Webster (Whig), Willie Mangum (Whig)
1841 (Mar-Apr): William Henry Harrison (Whig)
1840 (with John Tyler) def. Martin Van Buren (Democratic)
1841 - 1842 (Acting (disputed)): John Tyler (Whig, then Independent)
1842
(June) (Acting): Samuel L. Southard (Whig)
April 1842: Impeachment of John Tyler
1842 - 1843 (Acting): John White (Whig)
1843
(Mar-May) (Acting): John Davis (Whig)
1842 special election, presidential: Henry Clay (Whig) [135] def. Martin van Buren (Free-Soil Democratic) [75], Richard Mentor Johnson ("Mule" or "Jackass" Democratic) [52], John Tyler (New Democratic-Republican) [9], Samuel Ward King (Law and Order) [4]
1842 special election, vice-presidential: John Davis (Whig) [139] def. George Dallas (Free-Soil Democratic) [75], Preserved Fish ("Mule" Democratic) [52], John Calhoun (New Democratic-Republican) [9]
1843 contingent election, first ballot: Henry Clay [11] def. Martin Van Buren [6], Richard M. Johnson [6], deadlocked [3]
Ballots 2 through 104:
no resolution
1843 - 0000: Martin Van Buren (Free-Soil Democratic)
1843 contingent election, ballot 105: Martin Van Buren [14] def. Henry Clay [6], Richard M. Johnson [6]

Really, John Tyler should have seen it coming. His fellow Whigs were uneasy about the newly-minted Vice-President's eagerness to step into Harrison's shoes scarcely a month into his term, but they might have accepted Tyler's accidental leadership if he'd presented himself as a reluctant caretaker and just stuck to the Party line.

Instead, he insisted on being called "President" (which made it very awkward when Congress found its notification of availability, addressed to the "Vice-President", returned unopened), told Henry Clay to go hang, and vetoed the National Bank and the Whigs' tariff proposals in an open declaration of war.

After Clay engineered the resignation of the entire Cabinet and left his ally, the president pro tempore of the Senate, first in line to the (Acting) Presidency, articles of impeachment were drafted and bitterly debated through the fall and winter of 1841. Lured by the prospect of catching the Whigs in disarray in the inevitable special election, enough Democratic Senators swung behind the vote to convict, and His Accidency became the first President Vice-President to be removed from office. Henry Clay had won.

And then Samuel L. Southard went and goddamn well died.

One President dying was unfortunate; his successor being impeached by his own party was an embarrassment; his successor dropping dead, to be replaced by the third Acting President in the space of fourteen months, was a humiliation.

The 1842 presidential vote looked uncomfortably close for the Whigs, especially with Tyler's revenge campaign messing with the numbers, but still very winnable. The Speaker of the House was very quietly riding out his four months to the November special elections and happily signed off on the tariff, the National Bank Bill was waiting to enter Congress, and the Democrats were splitting six ways from Sunday over the slavery issue.

And then Rhode Island tipped the pisspot into the soup bowl, as Clay was shut out by the state elders' quixotic campaign to protest at the Federal government's refusal (inability, really) to intervene in the Dorr Rebellion. After the Electoral College deadlocked on the Presidency, the election went to a deadlocked House for an equally deadlocked contingent election, and come March 4 the United States had its fourth Acting President in two years.

It was ironic, really, that Henry Clay would be on the receiving end of a Corrupt Bargain. But after the Connecticut and Virginia delegations flipped in their late elections, the Whigs had a clear message that they were being held responsible for the chaos of the last two years. The trickle of votes sloshing around between ballots would turn into a flood towards the least appalling compromise candidate, sweeping the man who had been blamed for the depression of 1837 back into the Oval Office as the one entrusted to lead America back to prosperity. Martin Van Buren was back, and nobody was particularly happy about it.

Outside the United States, the world has not stood still. Texas, waiting anxiously to find out whether it did or didn't have a friend it could depend on, has thrown its lot in with the British. Abolition is a high price to pay for a guarantee of independence, but Mexico is right there and getting its shit together with unpleasant speed. This has frustrated the Southern Democrats, who are demanding Van Buren do something about it, even as the Northern Democrats get hot under the collar about Oregon. As the President - who has pledged to honour the two-term precedent to make way for a "real" President - desperately tries to stitch the Party of Jackson back together in time for the 1846 election, tensions are at fever pitch.

Meanwhile, in the farthest reaches of Mexico, an American immigrant building a sawmill in the Sierra Nevada is about to notice something in a river that might just manage to make the whole situation even worse.

Amazing. How do the Southern Democrats (and John Tyler) approach Texas becoming an abolitionist state?

Meanwhile, in the farthest reaches of Mexico, an American immigrant building a sawmill in the Sierra Nevada is about to notice something in a river that might just manage to make the whole situation even worse.
California is in for interesting times.

In the Chinese sense, of course.

America still hasn’t overcome the shock of self-proclaimed Anti-statist “Bro” Jackson’s victory last Tuesday in the 2060 Presidential election. The country known for its left-wing politics and the dominance of Democratic-Socialist party elected the former Congressman from North Carolina over Minnesota Senator Isra Hirsi, the first Muslim woman to appear on a major party ticket. While outgoing Jon Ossoff stated that he’s looking forward to meeting the president-elect, other members of the Democratic-Socialists are far less excited about the upcoming presidency of the man who once advocated for the dissolution of the United States and who spoke at an assembly of post-left anarchist protest groups. Some have even advocated for the refusal to seat the Maine native, but no prior precedent exists to such a move and the 51% of the vote that he received is a clear majority.

President-elect Jackson decries what he describes as a smear campaign against his character and stated that “we are fucking done with Marxism, the state dictating everything we do, and the pointless War against Fascism in Russia”. Such talking points have made him especially popular among young voters. Voters aged 16-21 broke 80-18 for Jackson, while down-ballot Republicans barely got 60%. This is a still a massive feat however for the Republican party, which has increasingly become the party of young voters and shied away from ideologies like conservatism and Trumpism, that were dominant in the party during the 2020s and 2030s especially. The changing of the party coalitions can also be seen down-ballot as Jackson became the first Republican to win the state of Douglas and the first to win the election without winning the State of Utah since the 19th century. Many older Democratic-Socialist voters are still afraid that he’ll bring back the days of Trump and to a lesser extent John James. Millennial- and Gen Z- voters both voted for Senator Hirsi by more than 10%.

The VP-elect is even more unpopular among older voters however. The Vermont governor is even more radical than their boss. They not only is an anti-Statist, but also an outright Anarchist. 000-00-0000 (birth name Florence Mackey) refuses to take the oath of office as they does not consider themselve an American. While some Democratic-Socialists state that this means they cannot officially become the VP, 000-00-0000 disagrees with them and points out that the oath of office is strictly a tradition and not something that they actually has to take in order to become Vice-President. They also refuses to live in the Federal Strict during their vice-presidency and as an Agrarian instead wants to represent America’s rural population by living in a different rural county every 3 months. This move is especially popular among younger voters, which have become increasingly disillusioned with urban metropoles and prefer the isolation and communalism that is more present in Rural America.

Prime-Minister Aldridge of the Commonwealth of Great Britain and European Federation President Murat Onay have congratulated the president-elect and stated that they hope that the United States will continue to be a partner in the war against fascism in Russia and in the promotion of human rights, but neither showed enthusiasm in their message to the president-elect. Other national leaders of American allies like Aztlan, Israel-Palestine, New Zealand and Kurdistan had much more worried reactions to the results of the 2060 US election. Either way it will be interesting to see whether the Democratic-Socialist Senate will pass Jackson’s more radical proposals.
