This is probably ASB but what if FDR listened to a doctor's advice and decided not to run in 1944? Would President Roosevelt have named a successor or would he have worked behind the scenes like he did OTL with the choice for Vice President? There would have been considerable support for Henry Wallace but Southern Democrats opposed him because of his support of civil rights. He had also inspired considerable opposition from Northern politicos because of his weak political skills and eccentric personality. The OTL candidates for Vice President Alben Barkley and James Byrnes would run. OTL FDR vetoed Barkley because he thought he was too old. Byrnes candidacy floundered because as a Senator from South Carolina, he and opposed civil rights, as a war time agency head he had alienated labor unions by cracking sown on strikes and he had converted from Catholic to Episcopalian. OTL Robert Hannegan, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee organized successful campaign for Senator Harry Truman for Vice President. Could he get Truman nominated for President?
futurist: Good luck to you, MN!

MinnesotaNationalist: well, that was the most underwhelming jury duty ever. Came in one day, was told to go home, and now I'm told that I'm not needed anymore for this session.

ieph: I've been actually thinking of just spending my time here, gradually decreasing my presence in AH.com. But in the meantime, I'm spending my time reviving one of my old WIPs sadly lost to the sands of time (I guess)

jennysnooper87: If that's the case, would it be okay if I moved the TL from AH.com to this site?
