HBO’s VEEP Selina Meyer to join Nationals presidents race Tuesday night

Teddy Roosevelt Selina Meyer VEEP Washington Nationals Presidents RaceA giant Selina Meyer mascot will join the Washington Nationals racing presidents Tuesday night at Nationals Park, as part of a promotion for Sunday’s season premier of the HBO series VEEP.

As first reported by the intrepid Dan Steinberg at The Washington Post, the Julia Louis-Dreyfus character will join Teddy Roosevelt in a relay race vs. a team of Abe Lincoln and William Howard Taft. No news on what the founding fathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson will be up to.

The giant likeness of Dreyfus will also be in the center-field plaza before the game, and will be featured in several in-game promotions.

Steinberg’s report did state that this “will mark the first time a television character will appear in the race,” but in fact, a giant Brian Griffin from Family Guy participated in a similar promotion back in May, 2010.

  1. All I know is, Washington better call on the greatest living president: Josiah Bartlet!
