Senator Albert Jerimiah Beveridge emerged as a leader in two early twentieth century movements: Imperialism and progressivism. He was able to balance the contradictory goals of these movements by creating a rhetorical framework that depicted each serving the common end of Anglo-American superiority. Beveridge’s success demonstrates that it is possible for rhetors to adapt to changes in the rhetorical situation without surrendering their personal convictions.
