Dewey Defeats Truman Spoof Clinton Button

Quick Overview

This is a clever campaign button from the 1992 presidential campaign of Bill Clinton for President. Produced after the vote electing Clinton was concluded, the button lampoons naysayers who said then President George H.W. Bush would defeat Bill Clinton in Bush's re-election campaign. The button features President Harry Truman holding up a copy of the famous Chicago Daily Tribune newspaper that erroneously reported that Dewey had beaten Harry Truman in the 1948 presidential election, but instead of proclaiming "Dewey Defeats Truman" as the original newspaper did, this one proclaims "Bush Defeats Clinton".
