Dubya Opens US Baseball Season w/Good Pitch

I watched Dubya throw this pitch from the mound of the new Washington Nationals ballpark last night. He threw a high, hard pitch from the rubber to the catcher. Most presidents stand at the front of the mound and still lob the ball on one bounce to the catcher. Of the three remaining major prez candidates, I'd guess that Obama -- a lefthander, I believe -- would do the best job of throwing off the mound. Hillary probably throws like a girl. And McCain's probably too old to throw off the mound. By the way, the Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 in their home opener. And the M's begin their baseball season at midafternoon today.
