In certain professions, notably bartending and sales, espousing a political viewpoint is bad for business. Best not to risk offending a potential client, especially when he's paying you to agree with him. This philosophy is taken to a humorous extreme with this "Salesman's Safety Pin" from 1940. It seemed everyone was either for or against one of these guys--why not play it safe and campaign for both of them at once? A classic political novelty that will complement your Roosevelt OR your Willkie collection...either way, you'll have fun explaining it!
