thinkin about that time the mob almost killed mario cuomo after he quit being governor
  • As per usual, Bush wins in 1992, as Clinton falls apart due to any number of things, and Perot does just the right amount of vote-splitting
  • With many Democrats fearing they'll never return to the presidency, they finally force Cuomo (who destroys Herbert London in '94) into a presidential run
  • Cuomo's elected easily in 1996 over a dying (but increasingly popular) Dan Quayle, and plans to get liberalism back on track!
  • The Italian Mafia is still in bad shape in ITTL 1996, and decide that hitting a president wouldn't be a terrible idea to send a message with.
  • Cuomo visits Sicily, and is killed, and his vice-president, Bob Graham, becomes president
  • Graham, although he faces a popularity boost post-assassination (enough to tide Democrats over through the midterms), is unable to maintain much popularity due to his bland, cracker-like personality.
  • Graham attempts to fix this by picking charismatic ex-charity leader, Cuomo associate, and Poor People's Campaign leader Marian Wright Edelman, who ends up overshadowing Graham and also costs them the south
  • In 2000, a re-energized Republican Party nominates senator Oliver North, who is seen as a return to the Reagan days and is heavily backed by the party's conservative wing.
  • North picks Ken Eikenberry as his VP because Muh Northwest
  • Bob Smith invents his own third party because he claims anti-Catholic politics is on the rise post-Cuomo assassination; forgets Cuomo was Catholic.
  • Graham faces a primary challenge from his party's weirdo wing as Harry Lonsdale attempts to primary him, but ends up hopping to the Reform Party with Ted Turner as his running mate.
  • Campaign gets weird as Graham is attacked on all fronts and folds to pressure, North grows massive margins in South and West but Smith's "Catholic victimhood" campaign holds him back in the split Northeast.
  • Race comes down to Oregon, but Clackamas county folds like the weak willed people they are, and North wins it narrowly.
  • Oliver North utilizes all the post-Cuomo assassination "security measures" to begin to form his global empire, USS Cole bombing gets used as pretext to attack Sudan wayyyyyy earlier
  • Old FBI director is right, Russian mafia becomes major security threat in the US as the old Italian one is destroyed, Brighton Beach becomes a massive criminal hub, not helped by Republican mayoral candidate Bill Green attempting to appeal to Russians in '01 against Democrat Michael Bloomberg (especially when Green wins)
  • North gets gay marriage officially banned in the US
  • Sudanese war goes south very quickly and anti-war protestors begin to rise.
  • John Hagelin gets elected to House from IA-03, Natural Law movement grows in size.
  • North uses Kurdish excuse to invade Iraq as well in 2002
  • Despite controversy in the North administration for astute social conservatism and warmongering, the Democrats remain split and end up nominating Lieberman because they're afraid of looking weak on war.
  • Lieberman chooses John Hendrix as VP because why not
  • Hagelin and Natural Law movement begin to build support among progressives, especially after the Reform Party completely dies and Lonsdale endorses Hagelin.
  • Ron Paul primaries North and does Ron Paul things, endorsing both (insert Libertarian here) and Hagelin.
  • As expected, Lieberman goes out collapsing and Hagelin, with Bill Scranton III as his running mate pulls 5%.
  • North gets caught doing massive financial crimes and is removed from office, causing a rump Eikenberry administration to piss off all wings of the Republican Party.
  • During this time both the Democrats and Natural Law Parties are swept into office, with possible hopes of a popular front being formed between the two.
  • Hagelin. deciding to pull off a new strategy, runs in both party's primaries, and, shockingly, wins both, forging a strange popular front against Eikenberry lead by the Natural Lawers.
  • Hagelin casts aside a split opposition, even with Hendrix running as an "independent Democrat" (while still nominating Hagelin's Vice President).
  • The rest is history.

2004 Def. David Barry "Dave" Brudnoy/Gary Alvin Franks (Republican)



[1] Resigned over involvement with "October Surprise" Scandal
[2] While Hardy was elected governor as a Democrat in 1979, his general movement away from the Democrats due to a close partnership with President Reagan led to him leaving the party during Reagan's impeachment, arguing "irreconcilable differences" with the "loony liberal" Democratic Party. Ironically, in his re-election bid he faced archconservative ex-Klansman (and born again Christian) David Duke, who was a Democratic state legislator (and in 1992 a presidential candidate on the Christian Identity "Constitution Party" ticket).
[3] The National Unity-Techno Vote Alliance would endorse President Love following his support for the 28th Amendment in 1995, which intended to replace the electoral college with a two-round popular vote system and make the House of Representatives elected via D'Hondt method. While Love was re-elected, the amendment ended up failing, particularly in the heavily Democratic South.
this is probably my most interesting idea tbh, mike love’s coalition would be insane


imagine marianne williamson in california as a “mike love republican” - it would be so perfect
