The club already is expanding the Red Loft, and I don’t know whether there are enough liquor licenses in the District for any more bars in the ballpark. So the club may have to turn to the Racing Presidents to draw people to the ballpark this season: They may have to add a Racing Obama.
President Barack Obama likely will throw out the first pitch for the Nationals’ home opener April 13 against the Phillies, which pretty much guarantees a sellout. But unless they can persuade him to stop by on a regular basis, the Nationals should offer the next best thing: Add Obama to the foursome of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.
No Adam Dunn. No Eddie Guardado. No Racing Obama.
