A suggestion

Perhaps this article should begin by mentioning which country it is referring to?—Nat Krause 09:37, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

Yes, there were whigs in the U.K., of course. "Whig Party" should be a disambiguation page, with the current article living at Whig Party (United States) or U.S. Whig Party perhaps. --Larry Sanger 00:25, 22 April 2007 (CDT)

Yes, "whig" or "whig party" should be a disambiguation page. Sandy Harris 14:13, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, treating a fairly short-lived American party as the primary reference, rather than the much longer-lived British one (or the modern Liberian one) seems very Americocentric). Peter Jackson (talk) 11:24, 14 December 2019 (UTC)
