Electoral Map Is Inaccurate
According to the electoral-vote map Willkie carried Wyoming, but in fact President Roosevelt, and not Willkie, carried the state. The map should be corrected.
Electoral picture peculiarity

Does anyone have a source on Willkie's serving as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1932? He was a delegate to the 1924 Democratic National Convention, being elected from Ohio's 14th congressional district. At that time, he was living in Akron. Ohio Elects the President p. 95. Chronicler3
I don't have the book in front of me, but I believe that Herbert Parmet's Never Again: A President Runs for a third term includes a reference to Willkie having been a Democratic delegate in 1932, and mentions him supporting FDR in the fall campaign against Hoover. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:46, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
For Hanford MacNider, the name itself should be "clickable", since there is an article about him in wikipedia.
Better Photo Needed
Could someone who knows how replace the low-quality photo of Willkie with a better one? I searched Google and found several photos which, IMO, are superior to the one currently in use. Just a thought. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:09, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
