And now, at last, the completion of this week's featured article on Douglas Watson means that all eighteen governors-general of the C.N.A. have achieved full coverage. Watson was the fourteenth governor-general, gaining the office under dubious circumstances after the death of his predecessor, Henderson Dewey, on 10 May 1929. Watson led the C.N.A.'s Liberal Party to its greatest triumph in the 1933 Grand Council elections, winning 104 out of 150 seats. Then, over the course of the next five years, his popularity plummeted as he attempted to end the C.N.A.'s traditional isolationism and align it with Great Britain, France, and Japan in the looming Global War. In the 1938 elections, Watson led the Liberals to a narrow defeat at the hands of the isolationist Bruce Hogg of the People's Coalition. Hogg reversed Watson's active foreign policy, leaving the British and their allies to suffer a series of defeats after war broke out in 1939.
There remains much work to be done on the Sobel Wiki. Six of the articles on the U.S.M.'s 18 leaders are still mere stubs, as are most of the articles on the Mexican states, the North American confederation, and the two nations' political parties and major elections. But one by one, the major pieces of the Sobel timeline continue to be filled in.
