[President] Wilson liked to tell of an incident at Staunton, Virginia, his hometown, where he received a great ovation after his election as President in 1912. While he was addressing a large crowd of people, a small boy pushed and shoved his way to the front until he stood right in front of the speaker, shouting: “Where is it? Where is it?”

Wilson stopped his speech and said good-naturedly, “Well, my boy, I guess I’m it.”

”Shucks,” cried the boy disgustedly, “I thought it was a dogfight.”
