Howard TaftThe EESC’s Enlarged Presidency, consisting of the President, the two Vice-Presidents, the three Group Presidents, meets before every Bureau meeting and plenary session in order to ‘prepare and facilitate’ the Committee’s work. In addition, the enlarged Presidency also meets occasionally outside this monthly rhythm in order to discuss more general political issues. Today the enlarged Presidency met, productively as always, and I can, as always, say little about its agenda. However, I do like to record the fact that it met because that enables me to publish, as always, an image of a truly enlarged President, William Howard Taft, the 27th President of the United States of America and such an enlarged President that he supposedly got stuck in a White House bathtub and could only be freed through the liberal application of butter.
