If we’re going to start eliminating possible presidential candidates because of their weight being a possible negative factor towards their health, then why do we let so many old people run for president? Seriously, she’s talking to a guy whose party ran a guy in 2008 who was within seven freaking years of the average American life expectancy. I could see if he were suffering from a debilitating life-threatening disease, but being fat is NOT a guarantee that someone is falling apart at the seams health-wise. Hell, Woodrow Wilson had a stroke in 1919 that left him incapable of governing the country — his wife took unofficial charge for the next two years until they left the White House — and if you’ve seen photos of him you know that was not a fat man. The point is, health is not now nor has it ever been under the sole ownership of the thin.
