    I just don't think the scenario would have had a chance of playing out like you want it to......former Confederates making the White House was simply not going to happen. Not even Robert E. Lee could have run for President & won-& he was by & far more respected than either of those 2. Though somewhat popular, these men were cold blooded killers-not the "Robin Hood" of popular literature. These men had participated in & perpetuated some very heinous crimes. Again, while some found that to be interesting, that does not in any shape, form, or fashion translate into the kind of political clout that would vault them to the head of the party.

      If a down and out drunk could ascend to the white house on a sea of corpses, why not anyone else? Money has always bought everything, especially the presidency, and the James Brothers knew how to get it.

      Money changing hands can go along way, how else do you explain the Denver Broncos winning two superbowls

        Who is the down & out drunk who ascended on a sea of corpses?

        The only money they could use would be money they got from a bank robbery-neither had any "family money". Somehow I don't think the nation will let them fund their political machine on stolen money.

          Snowballs chance in Hades.

          And I'd still bet for the Snowball over the James Ticket for President.

          I agree that Aliens attacking the Empire is far more plausible.

          I'd almost say that the Empire invading Earth is got a better shot.

          Some what ifs are thought provoking, some are good, some are iffy.......

          and then some are just a couple miles out there.

            In a country where Nixon and Clinton were two term presidents why could not even more famous criminals become president?
