New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
So Christa Hazel provides this link to a decidedly unflattering photo of Gov. Christie. The LA Times opinion piece poses the question "Chris Christie: Does he have the look of a president?"
To be president, do you have to look presidential?
And if so, does that mean Chris Christie should forget about a run for the Oval Office?
New Jersey's governor, considered a rising star in the Republican Party, was hospitalized Thursday after having trouble breathing (he suffers from asthma), The Times reported. The story takes note of Christie's weight issues:The governor has acknowledged leading an unhealthy lifestyle. In a recent interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, Christie said he feels "guilty" about his weight.
"I'm really struggling, been struggling for a long time with it, and I know that it would be better for my kids if I got it more under control. And so I do feel a sense of guilt at times about that," he said.
What do you think? Would Americans elect an overweight man or woman as president?
PS: Mike Kennedy, Christa specifically hopes that you will weigh in on the subject.
