by the most tremendous majority
ever known in the country
the voters of the united states
went to the polls
and elected a vermonter.
never before has a presidential candidate
conducted himself during the campaign as did mr. coolidge
he remained in washington
and did the day’s work.
he did not make what can be termed
he totally disregarded all attacks made upon him
by his political opponents.
he did not even defend himself against
a personal attack on his record.
he ignored all criticism directed either at him
or at his party.
he was the most silent candidate the country has ever seen.
and he won by a landslide.
let the future take note.
