William Howard Taft (September 15, 1857 - March 8, 1930) was the 27th president of the United States. He is best known for two things:
1. Being the fattest US president in history. In fact he was so fat that he got stuck in his own bathtub and had to have people help him to get unstuck. He eventually got a [url=http://www.wellswooster.com/phototaft.htm]gigantic bathtub[/b] to replace the one he got stuck in.
2. He was at a baseball game and stood up in between the first and second half of the seventh inning, thus creating the baseball tradition of the 'seventh-inning stretch'.
Let's discuss this president, his policies, his philosophies, his actions, his life, his weight problems, and why he decided to stand up during the middle of the seventh inning.
