There are a number of PODs that have been suggested to help Lodge: If he'd spent less time getting Ike nominated and more time worrying about his race, if Joe McCarthy agreed to campaign for Lodge and helped with Catholics, JPK's...

    Thomas Dewey and Adlai Stevenson are best remembered as two-time losers for their respective parties. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to have Dewey and Stevenson run against each other in a presidential election. Under the circumstances, who would win and why?

    Dewey Defeats Truman. Who wins in 1952?

    If Thomas Dewey got elected President in 1948, does he win in 1952? Is Korea still an issue? Does Dewey handle it better than Truman? Who do the Democrats nominate? Stevenson as in OTL or perhaps Kefauver?

    1952 Democratic Nominee If Dewey Defeats Truman

    Suppose that in 1948 Dewey had gone with his gut and aggressively counterattacked Truman during the fall election campaign. The President still gains ground against his opponent, but it is not enough to deprive Dewey of an electoral college majority. On January 20, 1949 Thomas E. Dewey is sworn...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 1: Shivering in Shasta

    The 1950 California Senate Election or Shivering in Shasta “It certainly seemed odd to me at the time, I’ll admit.
