He'll be known as Bill, to fit in with Teddy (Theodore Roosevelt), Abe (Abraham Lincoln), George (George Washington) and Tom (Thomas Jefferson).
I already have a complaint. While the mustache is glorious, part of the reason why Taft was a great choice was that he was a portly fellow, reportedly clocking in at around 335 pounds during his presidency. So what's with this slimmed-down Bill? Did the Nationals make him modernized and on a carb-free diet or something similiar?
I could, however, be won over with some sort of bathtub gimmick during the upcoming season.
