The guy holding Buddy Cianci's hand in the picture is a dead ringer for Pete Buttigieg in about ten years.
Also, re: John Lewis. This is a weird thing to say, and I wouldn't say it at all if the man wasn't dead and society hadn't moved beyond this kind of shit. But there were widespread, longtime rumors in Black Atlanta Democratic circles that Lewis was gay, and that his wife, Lillian, was a beard. And when I say widespread, I mean that you might be at Manuel's tavern (ATL Democratic watering hole), and someone you've been chit-chatting with for an hour or so throws it out there. Not something talked about when you were at GDP offices, but after work, yeah. People talked.
I have literally no idea whether this was true or not, and couldn't care less. But, the Republicans of 1992 would probably care quite a bit.
Excellent update! My only nitpick is the electoral map. I have a hard time seeing Lewis winning in West Virginia. Take the 2012 Democratic presidential primary there for example. It’s hard to deny Obama’s race played a significant part in that margin…
