James K. Polk[edit]

Self nomination. -- Emsworth 21:43, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • Well done! Support. Minor quibble: you might want to give a quick definition of "dark horse" in the introduction--the term might not be familiar to all readers. Meelar (talk) 21:49, Feb 20, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. This is really a well done page, although I'm not a professional dictionarian Wim van Dorst 22:39, 2005 Feb 20 (UTC)
  • I'm impressed. I fixed a couple date issues by fully wikifying them, even though the years were linked previously – it allows the user preferences to take effect when they are fully linked. One tiny detail - why the See Also link to U.S. presidential election, 1844 when it's also linked in the title of one of the sections? Anyway, support. --Spangineer 22:40, Feb 20, 2005 (UTC)

  • Support, but the first line of the article is "{{Infobox President/{{{dead}}}|date of death=June 15, 1849|place of death=Nashville, Tennessee}}" (in Firefox/WinXP). However, I can't see the error in the source text. Jeronimo 07:37, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. 11th president of the US? Never knew the guy, but the article looks sound. Agree with above minor quibbles. Mgm|(talk) 09:27, Feb 21, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Got to this article first via link from a list I've been working on and was considering nominating it myself. Filiocht 09:40, Feb 21, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - "the factions soon agreed, he's just the man we need" ... [1] I'm not sure the TMBG song (on Factory Showroom, incidentally) is really "educational" though. Are you doing James Ensor, "Belgium's famous painter", next? -- ALoan (Talk) 12:45, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - Excellent article! --SFoskett 18:17, Feb 24, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. A well written article worthy of nomination. --GRider\talk 23:54, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Renomination --Otheus 15:10, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

The Wall Stree Journal editorial board's book list for 15:10, 17 February 2007 (UTC) includes a biography of James K. Polk. I thought I'd update the article, and indeed, fixed a few things.
