In early 1900, Harper’s Weekly ran five cartoons featuring possible vice-presidential nominees. The Republicans were Governor Theodore Roosevelt of New York, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts, Secretary of War Elihu Root, and former Interior Secretary Cornelius Bliss (1897-1899), and the lone Democrat was James Stephen Hogg, a former governor of Texas (1891-1895). The cartoonist’s preference for Bliss is revealed through describing him as a man of experience, drawing him in tandem with President William McKinley (the others are pictured alone), and publishing the cartoon on the eve of the Republican National Convention in June.
