On the floor around him are claws labeled "Confirming Power" and teeth that have been extracted by a tool labeled "Public Sentiment." Theodore Roosevelt and Grover Cleveland are standing arm-in-arm in the background, with Roosevelt holding large scissors labeled "Roosevelt Bill," which he has used to clip the claws of the Tammany Tiger.
