So says Keith Olberman in an interview with Rolling Stone:
On Gov. Chris Christie as a candidate for president:
“You will not see a hefty man elected president. Haley Barbour looked at the presidential field and said, ‘I can get the nomination, but America has not elected a hefty man since William Howard Taft in 1908.’ People want a young, fit, trim-looking guy. Tall works, but basically young, fit, trim. Think about it, Obama, young, fit, trim. Bush, young, fit, trim. Clinton – young, relatively fit, he didn’t look outsize when he was elected, trim. George I, for his age, looked bouncy, and Reagan looked 20 years younger than he was.”
Someone fit and trim? Like this?
