President Obama met Nationals' racing presidents

Friday June 12th, 2015

President Obama may not be a part of the upcoming primary races but he appears to have a different type of race on his schedule after stopping by the annual congressional baseball game at Nationals Park on Thursday night.

The President used his new Twitter account to share his meeting with the racing presidents who entertain Nationals fans with their fleet-footed antics during home games.

Obama was joined by the felt reincarnations of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, William Howard Taft and Teddy Roosevelt for the gathering of past and present commanders-in-chief.

Unfortunately, the President did not join in an actual race yet, but hopefully he will make good on his challenge before his time in Washington is up.
