In response to popular demand (Montag, Walrus and ..?) I wish to say that if nominated by acclaim on the SST ticket, I will adopt a McClellan like stance of restrained pomposity and await the verdict of the states. He got 44.95% of the popular vote without ever making a speech. Hmmm. Platform to follow. pl
I have corrected the number on Mac’s share of the popular vote after receiving the counsel of a friend. I had not realized that he actually won three states. I think that "The Young Napoleon" might have won if Early had been victorious at Cedar Creek and Sherman had not captured Atlanta before the general election. In spite of his statements to the contrary I think he would have eventually made some sort of arrangement with the Confederate States that would have made permanent something less than Lincoln’s war aims.
