President Lyndon Johnson decides not to continue in the Presidential race because of a poor showing in the primaries. Hubert Humphrey immediately enters the primaries.
In a bold (and some say politically suicidal) move, Humphrey asks for and adds Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King as his running mate.
At the DNC, Humphrey and King are nominated as the candidates for the election. The RNC nominages Nixon and Agnew as in OTL.
November- Humphrey/King win in a landslide election against the Nixon/Agnew ticket.
January- Hubert Humprey and Martin Luther King, Jr. are both inagurated as President & Vice President of the United States of America.
March- 34th U.S. President & Five-Star General Dwight D. Eisenhower dies on the 28th March in Washington D.C.
April- President Humphrey announces that a slow but gradual removal of troops from Vietnam. He claims that 60% of the current troops will be brought back home by 1974
November- After a airplane crashes into the Oval Office and destroying 10% of the White House, President Humphrey resigns and successfully becomes Governor of Minnesota. MLK becomes the 38th president of the USA.
