- Interpret the couplet below the image of Zachary Taylor: “About party creeds let party zealots fight / He cant be wrong whose life is in the right.” How might this couplet along with the title of the poster help Taylor appeal to and connect with voters?
- Contrast this campaign poster with the way the Whig candidate (presumably Taylor) is portrayed in “An Available Candidate: The One Qualification for a Whig President.” Which one is more effective? Why?
