Presidents Day warm-up 3: TR and the Panama Canal, 1906.

"The President in Panama," by Clifford Berryman for the Washington Star, 1906.


Just five more days till Presidents Day !!
A good president should enjoy the job, and make sure people see him enjoying it.  Here is Washington Star cartoonist Clifford Berryman's 1906 vision of Theodore Roosevelt relishing the sight of his presidential handiwork, the digging of the Panama Canal.  His one word reaction:  "Dee-Lighted!"  (Click on it to see it full size.)
I'm dee-lighted too.  What a great cartoon!
