"Isolation at Last"

This cartoon by Edwin Marcus shows a dejected castaway labeled "Isolationists" on a desert island, surrounded by a sea labeled "Presidential Campaign." By 1940, as the Germans overran Europe, most Americans had abandoned their isolationist stance, and both presidential candidates, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Wendell Wilkie, took an internationalist position. The cartoonist suggests that it is the Isolationists who have now been isolated.
