The Washington Nationals got everyone excited Thursday by releasing this communique on Twitter:
The rumors are true – there will be a #5thPresident racing in 2013! But who will it be? Find out at #NatsFest !

The announcement probably stopped workflow in most D.C.-area offices. And not just there. This is something that literally every person in the world has an opinion on. Us, too. Who is suited best to join George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt at Nationals Park?
It’s probably safe to assume the Nats will not pick a living former president, which disqualifies George Bush 41 and George Bush 43, along with Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. And, of course, the current president. It’s too bad about Clinton, because he’d be hilarious. He’s got a good face for the big-head caricature, and he’d always be flirting with the ball girls and eating McDonald’s on the run.
That leaves the Nats with, well, a whole bunch of ex-presidents from which to choose. Here they are, with their odds:
Ronald W. Reagan (5-1)
