Unknown Name

Theodore Roosevelt's Vice President (Southern Victory)

In the Southern Victory Series by Harry Turtledove, the identity of Theodore Roosevelt's Vice President is one of Turtledove's most glaring inconsistencies. In the course of the series, Turtledove provided this individual two names, Kennan and Walter McKenna. Kenna was introduced as he is sworn in for his second term in 1917 in Great War: Breakthroughs. However, Vice President Walter McKenna, an "amiable non-entity who was almost as fat as Congress man William Howard Taft" appears in American Empire: Blood and Iron.

  • Is Jimmy Carter's Vice President in the 1976 election, winning over Walter Mondale at the convention due to lobbying by John F. Kennedy, who in Baxter's novel was crippled but not killed in 1963. As in real life, Kennedy splits with Carter to unsuccessfully challenge him in the 1980 primaries, causing Carter in turn to lose to Reagan-Bush in the general election.
  • Due to Kennedy's influence when compared to Mondale in real life, the Carter Administration is more supportive of NASA's manned spaceflight program than it was in reality.
