  1. Perot wins in 1992. What does 1996 look like?

    During the 1992 presidential debates, Ross Perot mentioned that should he be elected, he would only serve one term, saying and I quote: "If the American people send me up to do this job, I intend to be there one term. I do not intend to spend one minute of one day thinking about re-election."...

    What if Iraq was invaded after the gulf war?

    What if instead of stopping when Iraq was forced out of Kuwait snd beaten the US and Coalition forces invaded iraq? How feasible is this? What would happen if the invasion occured? How would iraq handle under an invasion and how would the war go? Would it be like the Iraq war or no? And what...
  3. WI: George H. W. Bush never promised no taxes?

    Would he still win? If so, would he win reelection in 1992? What would the election of 1992 be like?
  4. DBWI: President Reagan Hadn't Resigned after the Iran-Contra affair?

    We all know how President Reagan resigned from office at the start of 1987 after it was announced that Congress would be launching an investigation into the Iran-Contra affair. After that, Vice President George H.W. Bush was sworn in as the new president, but his part in the affair completely...

    No Lee Atwater in 1988?

    Let’s say for one reason or another Lee Atwater never becomes involved in the 1988 presidential campaign. Maybe he dies early or Bush rejects him. Without Atwater, does Bush win?
  6. WI: Reagan runs as Independent in 1980

    So I got this scenario on where Ronald Reagan loses again in Republican primary in 1980 to George H.W. Bush who's seen as more moderate and somehow wins more support. Because of this let's say Reagan decides to run as Independent with more conservative ideology thus turning this into 4-way race...
  7. Mario Cuomo instead of Clinton: What changes?

    Mario Cuomo was a politician most well known for his liberal beliefs and oratory skills, most notably his "Tale of two cities" speech at the 1984 Democratic National Convention. Since then, he was considered a favorite for the 1988 and 1992 presidential nomination. However, both times, he...
  8. WI: Jimmy Carter runs in 1992

    So I had this idea of a scenario, let's say instead of southerner Bill Clinton winning the party nomination, Jimmy Carter instead runs and somehow wins for alternate history sakes. And so, after winning, Carter then faces incumbent George H.W. Bush who already was unpopular due to recession and...
  9. DBWI: George H.W Bush Doesn't Get Food Poisoning

    January 8, 1992 marked a shocking day around the world, where during a banquet between George H.W Bush and Kiichi Miyazawa, when Bush suddenly became ill, vomiting into Miyazawa's lap while letting out flatulence, then fainted and was taken to hospital, where after weeks, he died. It was...
  10. 1988 election after an earlier George HW Bush presidency

    I've been considering doing a timeline about a successful assassination of Reagan in 1981 lately, and while I do have a variety of questions regarding an ATL 80's, one of my biggest is who would run and win in the 1988 election. Bush's VP (whoever it is, most likely either Jack Kemp, Howard...
  11. WI: Dukakis runs again in '92

    What if Michael Dukakis decided to run again in 1992? The situation for Bush 41 was already different than it was in '88. He already lost support among conservatives. Dukakis who in OTL retired from politics instead sees the opportunity and decides to take a one final shot in this election, by...
  12. Would've Buchanan won if he was GOP candidate in '92 election?

    Let's say Bush 41 refuses to run for another term in 1992. As a result, you have a Republican primary with Pat Buchanan being candidate and possibly winning the primary. Bill Clinton wins the Democratic primary just like OTL. Ross Perot still joins race as an independent. How would the election...

    Bush replaced Quayle in 92

    If G.O.P decided that President Bush needed a new V.P candidate in order to win reelection (I'm not saying it would succeed) who would be Quayles successor as the Republican V.P candidate?
  14. Nobody's First Choice: Buchanan v. Jackson 1992

    An idea occurred to me earlier today. What if, instead of fighting off the primary challenge that he did in OTL, Bush Sr. loses the GOP renomination in 1992 to Patrick Buchanan, AND Jesse Jackson launches a strong left wing campaign that just manages to clinch the Democrat nomination due to the...
