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.
