  1. The Wilderness

    The Wilderness Prologue: You reap what you sow The early 2010s were a time of great confusion in the political world. Many had written off the Republican party as doomed to a great amount of time in the Wilderness after the abject failure of the Bush Administration had driven the country off a...
  2. Democratic policy post 2010

    I'm not really sure if this is a chat question or is distant enough gone that it'll be allowed, but I've been working on a timeline in which the Democrats keep control of the House and Senate in 2010, and have hit a roadblock as I'm not exactly sure what kinds of bills they might go forward with...
  3. Lab-Lib pact plausibility check

    So I've been playing around with Prime Minister Infinity and had a pretty solid run as the Liberals in 1950 and enjoyed myself so much I'm thinking of both making a continuation scenario and maybe a short timeline based on how a hypothetical Labour minority government with Liberal support would...
  4. AHC: John Anderson as the kingmaker in 1980

    John Anderson's run in 1980 was the last, dying gasp of the Rockefeller wing of the Republican party, before it was completely taken over by Reagan/Goldwater conservatives. Anderson has no real chance of winning. He's far, far too liberal for the GOP in 1980, but what if he's able to force a...
  5. AHC: The most successful Overlord possible.

    So, I've seen plenty of threads over the years about making Operation Overlord a failure, and the consequences from that. Your challenge is to do the opposite and figure out how to make Overlord as successful as it can possibly be, with a POD no further back than 6 June 1943.
  6. Could the Italians have failed harder in Greece?

    The Italian invasion of Greece is pretty widely maligned as an utter catastrophe, and not without reason. However, I'm curious if there was any way the invasion could've gone even worse. Such as Italy losing more people, the Greeks getting further into Albania, or some other catastrophe...
  7. Best Leader for the Lib Dems?

    So, I'm working on a timeline about the rise of the Liberal Democrats as a major force in British Politics (More major than they were historically, at least). I'm curious as to who the politibrits much more knowledgeable than I am on the topic think would be the best leader for the Lib Dems in...
  8. If Britain loses the Falklands War, what happens to Thatcher?

    So, I was doing a bit of reading on the 1983 election, and there seems to be a consensus that Thatcher only called the election early to deliver her the best chance of a crushing victory, in the wake of her soaring popularity after the Falklands War. So the question seems obvious. What happens...
  9. AHC: President Brooke

    As the title says, your challenge for the evening is to make Edward Brooke, senator from Massachusetts, to be elected president.
  10. Ashbrook '72?

    What is the most successful that Ashbrook's attempt to primary Nixon could've gotten? I've started looking into it and he actually did (modestly) well. There was a lot of grumbling from more Conservative Republicans about Nixon. I doubt Ashbrook could've actually toppled him, but how close do...
  11. The Liberal Split (The Second One) and the 1992 election

    So, I'm thinking about doing an alternate history based on a weird game of Prime Minister Forever, where I managed to win 1 seat for the continuity Liberal Party (Michael Meadowcroft's seat). The big problem is I know literally nothing about Meadowcroft, nor the effect that Meadowcroft and...
