Marker-signed to the bottom margin by 32 Blue Dog Democrat members of the U.S. House of Representatives, circa 1999-2002. George Rodrigue's iconic Blue Dog is said to be the namesake of the Blue Dog Coalition (though the apolitical Rodrigue himself rejected the association).

Condition

Very good condition, noting only a scuff to the top of the frame.
