  1. Nixon wins in 1960 and 1964: Democratic nominee in 1968?

    There are several threads about 1960 Nixon victory against JFK and its consequences, but I haven't seen any about potential democratic president after Nixon. Ok, let's say that Nixon victory in 1960 leads to the successful US invasion of Cuba instead of IRL Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile...

  3. Camelot Is Just A Fantasy: An alternate 1960s and beyond
    Threadmarks: Preamble

    You know the 1960s is one of my favorite decades, so much tragedy and triumph in one decade from the assassination of Kennedy and Vietnam to the Civil Right movement and the Moon Landings.

    Inspired by Cuban Missile Crisis escalates and Fatherland/Thousand Week Reich type Axis Victory TLs. So supposed that Germany gets incredibly lucky and pushes the Soviet Union passed the Urals by 1943, soon after somehow establishing a ceasefire with the Western Allies by 1944. The Allies have...
  8. Strong Voting Rights Act passed in 1961

    Let's say a strong voting rights act is passed by Kennedy or LBJ (because of early Kennedy killing) in 1961. How much of the political landscape does that change particularly in the south? Would the dixiecrats be able to use the threat of going third party or party switching since the black vote...

  13. AHC - Hippies become the dominate political force in the USA during the late 60/early 70's

    How could the hippie/counterculture movement at least for a time become the dominate political force in US politics and secure the presidency? I'm thinking of a couple of different things. The collapse of the established political parties with both the democrats and the republicans...

    If Kennedy Lived by Jeff Greenfield

    Anybody else read this? I have the audiobook and Ive listened through it several times over the years. I feel the author gives it a good try and its entertaining but I think a little too optimistic. Too much goes right and too little wrong. Still worth a read (or listen) but thats my two cents.

    Suppose that the 1960 presidential election goes further down the wire, and the Kennedy-Johnson ticket holds a plurality of the electoral and popular vote, but falls short of the magic number of 268 electors.
