Presidents and Bathtubs

Hacker Guccifer is getting lots of attention for posting George W. Bush’s bathtub self-portrait. There is a history behind presidents and bathtubs. William Howard Taft had a special large tub moved into the White House to fit his oversized girth. As far as I know, there are no soaker self-portraits by Taft. We should be grateful.
