I considered having him not do so, but he had pretty much the same approach to being Governor of Texas OTL, and he ran for reelection twice then. He seems to have wanted to hold the office more than he actually wanted to do anything with it.This is a fascinating write-up of the whole thing. Definitely going some very fucking weird places and I am all for it....I am not entirely sure why Briscoe even bothered to run for President in 1976 to be frank, he seems to have checked out of the presidency right out of the gate. Still, 1980's going to be a real shitshow, at least that's my take.
Love Sorvino…he was a perfect Kissinger in NixonI posted this on another thread but, if a movie is made about Briscoe's presidency, I can see Paul Sorvino (most known for Goodfellas, although he had many more solid roles than that) playing Briscoe, as there is a resemblance between them. (1)
Good to have Uvalde be known for something better than...what happened in May of 2022.
(1) Funnily enough, Sorvino starred on Law and Order as Chris Noth's partner (Phil Cerrata) before he left and was replaced by Jerry Orbach, who played...Lennie Briscoe, probably the most popular character in that universe, IMO...
No......!!!On February 28, 1975, while a procession carrying Chatterjee and several other high-ranking members of the urban and provincial governments crossed the Howrah Bridge, a bomb exploded, seriously damaging the bridge and killing Chatterjee and 39 other people.
Eh, he'd only be a SanFran City Councilor or at most Mayor by then. Maybe he could run for Governor in '82 instead of Tom Bradley and then maybe later Senate. Could definitely see Milk as a plausible presidential candidate in 1992 or 2000.I'm still expecting President Harvey Milk - either in 1980 or 1984. Or maybe a Glenn/Milk ticket in 84?
Good idea though she'd be known as Nancy Kassabaum since she didn't want to have her father's reputation weigh down her political career.Perhaps Nancy Landon too. The daughter of Alf Landon might do a good liberal republican president as counterpart of Eleanor Roosevelt.
The end result was that, as 1983 rolled into 1984, governments promising significant deregulation and privatization held power across South America, with the sole exception of Bolivia’s Marxist president Juan Lechín, who survived over 70 assassination attempts and a near-coup during his decades-long tenure as president, dying instead of a stroke in his bed in 1996.
