2000 election

  1. Jack Kemp vs Al Gore (2000)

    Let's say in this alternate 2000 election, Jack Kemp, a long recognized Republican decides to run and secures the Republican presidential primary, thus becoming a candidate to face off Al Gore? How would he have performed? Could he had beaten Gore? Keep in mind, Kemp is native to the...
  2. WI: Jesse Ventura runs in 2000

    What if incumbent governor Jesse Ventura ran in 2000 as Reform party nominee? Now we know in our timeline was that Ventura unexpectedly won the 1998 Minnesota governors race on a third party ticket which was very unusual at that time and still is. He was the most highest elected official to the...
  3. If Gore Had Won in 2000, How Could He Have Addressed Climate Change?

    Since the 1980s, Al Gore's chief policy issue has been climate change. He published the book An Inconvenient Truth in 1989, and starred in a 2006 documentary of the same name. Most discussions about a Gore victory in 2000 tend to focus on how he might've handled 9/11 and the economy differently...
  4. DBWI: How Would George W. Bush Have Handled 9/11 and the Financial Crisis?

    I know this is relatively recent history, but just to set the stage for this DBWI thought experiment I'll recap the past 20 or so years of US history. In 2000, after a nail-biting election campaign, Vice-President John Kerry defeated George W. Bush and became the 43rd American President. Kerry...

  6. Accountability: The Fall of Bill Clinton
    Threadmarks: Ch. 1: White House, January 25, 1998

    Accountability: The Fall of Bill Clinton January 25, 1998 It was going to be a relatively nice day, the high near 45. Sunday traffic was lighter in D.C., not that it mattered for the President’s motorcade. But despite having the ultimate right of way, it was still a few minutes behind...
  7. AHC: An Italian-American is Elected US President By 2000

    I've already done an AHC on having a woman be elected US President by 2000. Now your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to have a man or woman of Italian ancestry be elected President of the United States by the year 2000. Bonus points if it isn't someone obvious like Mario Cuomo or...
  8. AHC: A Woman is Elected US President by 2000

    AHC/WI: Bush Wins Both The Electoral & Popular Votes In 2000

    Just as the tin says, your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to give Dubya the total win over Gore in 2000, and explain the aftermath of such an event.

    Had John McCain been the 2000 Republican presidential nominee, who would've been his likely picks for Vice-President?
  11. WI: Clinton Taps Tom Harkin in 1992

    What if, instead of picking Al Gore, Bill Clinton taps Iowa Senator Tom Harkin to be his VP? Does this impact the 1992 presidential race? Would Harkin have beaten George W. Bush in 2000?
  12. WI: McCain vs Gore in 2000

    The POD is John McCain wins the 2000 South Carolina Republican Primary, and from there goes on to clinch the Republican nomination for President. In the general election, he faces Vice-President Al Gore. Who wins?
  13. Clinton Resigns in 1998. What Does Gore Do?

    The POD is Bill Clinton resigns over the Lewinsky scandal in 1998, making Al Gore the 43rd US President. How does Gore handle domestic and foreign policy? Can he work with the Republican Congress to get legislation passed? Would he win in 2000?
  14. WI: John McCain as a Democrat

    What if John McCain had decided to enter politics as a Democrat, not a Republican? Would he have achieved the same level of political success as in OTL? How far could McCain take his career as a Democrat?
  15. DBWI: Jeb Bush Moves to Florida

    In OTL Jeb Bush considered moving to Florida in 1980 in order to help build a network for his father's presidential campaign. Yet instead he decided to stay in Texas where he formed a political career of his own. After losing his first election to State Treasurer Ann Richards in 1986, Bush make...
  16. If Gore Wins in 2000 and McCain Wins in '04, Who Wins in '08?

    The year is 2000. Vice-President Al Gore narrowly defeats George W. Bush to become the 43rd US President. Four years later, Gore loses his re-election bid to Senator John McCain. In 2008 President McCain is running for re-election, at least if his health permits. Under these circumstances, and...

    On September 23, 1998, President Bill Clinton resigned after meeting with the Democratic Congressional leadership at the White House. Al Gore was sworn in as the 43rd President. What would it take to prevent Clinton from resigning? Would Clinton be able to survive the impeachment process? How...
  18. Would Jeb Bush Have Beaten John McCain in 2000?

    Similar to another thread I've done on a hypothetical Jeb! vs Gore race, the POD is that - as expected - George W. loses his 1994 race in Texas while Jeb! wins his race in Florida that same year. This sets up the younger Bush brother as the frontrunner for the 2000 Republican Presidential...
  19. AHC: President Gore vs. Bush in 2000

    POD: Bill Clinton decides to step down after the Lewinsky scandal breaks in early 1998 and Al Gore assumes the presidency. Two years later Gore fends off a primary challenge from Bill Bradley and he faces George W. Bush in the general election. What would be the result of a match between...
  20. WI: Alan Keyes wins the 2000 primary

    As some of you may know, the 2000 Republican primary elections were held with Bush winning and then competing against Al Gore. How in this alternate scenario you can get Alan Keyes to win and what would happen with him going against Gore? What would American policy be and how would the world change?
