    Not Hillary. Sorry Ghost.

    Are we doing this counterfactual with the presumption the same things occurred during their Presidency as actually happened? A President's greatness is often predicated upon the cards they are dealt.

    Dan Quayle is secretly the Shadow President. Does this count?

    This is the worst thread ever, and you should feel a deep and unrelenting sense of shame Ghost.

    Where is Bernie Sanders? This is what your desperate attempts to make Hillary Clinton win something have sunk to?

    Bob Dole, if only for the fact that every time his name was announced, all listeners would instantly remember how United Fruit's preferences were at one point allowed to dictate foreign policy.

    No, we don't want you in the club. You don't speak English, you have poorer manners than the corgis, and you play no redeemable sports.

    Plus you have Ghost, and this sorry bowel movement of a thread proves your relative worth.

    Don't think he was ever in danger of influencing the direction of this murderous imperialist state.

    According to the GOP, he was one of the Founding Fathers right?

    The serious answer is Al Gore. Also Dukakis, although he at least lost to someone who was a decent President anyway.

    Only doing general election candidates who received more than 10% in the last 40 years, but were never President.

    And I did a version of this thread about 8 years ago, and did a bunch of favorite President threads about a year ago, so no it's not a Hillary thread.
