Paul K. Hamilton was the 41st President of the United States of America. He won the 1984 election against Reginald John, after incumbent Henry Baxter decided not to run for re-election. Hamilton famously lost his own son Michael to drugs prior to his running for election; this led to his desire to run drugs out of America, beginning the war on drugs. However, Hamilton was later diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and he decided not to run for re-election. He was succeed by Jack Gilchrist. Hamilton succumbed to his own ill health in 1997.
