Pinback button opposing William Howard Taft for president, 1908.

Slogan is a parody of the "full dinner bucket" imagery used extensively by Republicans in taking credit for economic prosperity during the McKinley and Roosevelt years. A market panic in 1907 shook that confidence, and Democrats hoped to capitalize on insecurities in the 1908 campaign. Taft, nevertheless, was comfortably voted into office, and the economy rebounded.
