1836: Van Buren
1840: Van Buren
1848: Cass? (dubious because of support for popular sovereignty) Van Buren (had a good record, but platform worse than Democratic one)? Taylor? (Fillmore was pretty good). Whatever. I’ll go with Taylor.
1856: ???? Fillmore, I guess? The other two would prove fatal to the Union.
1872: Grant (Greeley is an insult to the two-party system).
1876: ??? Probably Tilden, but this is the least consequential election in history.
1928: Hoover (though I’m tempted by Smith, the GOP platform was better).
1940: Screw it. FDR, I guess.
1960: Nixon? Kennedy? In any case, one of them’s assassinated, and one turned out a crook. Nixon it is.
1964: Goldwater. Yes, his foreign policy did lead Rothbard to support Johnson, but the war in Vietnam escalated anyway.
1972: Nixon (?)
1976: Carter. Somebody had to get the axe for the 1980 recession.
1988: Bush. Clarence Thomas was worth it.
1992: ??? Clinton, I guess, since that pick led to 1994 and all that.
1996: ??? Clinton’s fine, I guess. Gridlock needed.
2000: Gore. This is an easy one, as re-election would be impossible for him due to the Iraq War -and Gore was in favor of regime change in Iraq. And there’s even a remote chance Gore wouldn’t have gone into Iraq, in which case, all the more reason to vote for him.
2004: Bush, I guess. Kerry would have made worse Supreme Court picks. (in actuality, I supported Kerry, as I did not like the war, and Bush sounded dangerously incompetent).
2008: Obama (in actuality, I supported McCain, due to my desire for gridlock).
2012: Romney (in actuality, I supported Obama, as I did not know he would revive the Islamic State. I absolutely hated Romney -sounded unpatriotic, looked like an elitist. Honestly, I could not see how he could win, or how anyone could like him.).
2016: Trump. Make America Great Again!
