Presidents Race Will Have a Vice-President for the Night

Everyone who said the Nationals' presidents race was over after Teddy Roosevelt won were wrong. That's because the real bad news for the  costumed faux-presidents will come Tuesday, when Teddy and his four counterparts are joined by a replica Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The Post reports that Foam Elaine will team up with Teddy in the race as part of a promotion for the second season of HBO's Veep, in which Louis-Dreyfus plays the vice-president. And while it can be disappointing to see the once-whimsical presidents race commercialized, keep in mind that the race has already featured one TV character and, worse, the Geico Gecko.
