Turns out General David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell were members of the Let Teddy Win movement. According to a new article by Dave Kindred, Petraeus, a known fitness freak, was asked about Teddy before a planned visit to Nationals Park on the team’s Military Appreciation Day in September.

Communicating through Broadwell, Kindred asked if Petraeus would be doing one of those segments where he coaches Teddy Roosevelt before the race. Broadwell told Kindred that Petraeus “insists he won’t coach unless the Nats let Teddy win.”

So that’s one thing that worked out well for them this fall.

  1. What really annoyed about that article was the line at the end that Teddy was rumored to have an affair. It quite clear if really look at Teddy’s life, especially reading the Edmund Morris books on him, he would not have had an affair.

What do you think?
