Would Hillary be doing better if she lost some weight?
People have certain perceptions about people who can't control their weight - like they don't possess the discipline to be president.

27. I think she looks damn good too
but weight is certainly a factor. I was told when I was running (tiny municipal election) that I needed to keep my weight down because people tend not to want to vote for heavy women. I'm not heavy, actually, a size 4 or 6 petite. But this put the fear of food in my mind.

Hillary is NOT fat. She looks very good. If she were 50 pounds heavier the OP would have a point. But she is not. She looks healthy.

7. This is, pardon me but, not very productive
and very mean.

I am for Obama but this type of attack does not serve progressive ideals.

11. I don't know, but Obama might do better if he could get his ears pinned....
or surgically altered.

What an insane topic for political discussion.

29. Probably not.
Years ago, I wish I could remember the publication, I read an article about politicians and which characteristics were more appealing to voters. Apparently a study or focus group showed that voters preferred women candidates who were about size 12 to 14 the best. That looks like about what Hillary is. Also, they preferred motherly type women to young hotties. Conversely, tall dashing handsome fellows fared better than their shorter, balder brethren. I don't remember what their analysis of those findings were but I just remember that part of it. :shrug:

36. Hillary looks more like a size 10
absolutely fine.

I'm one Obama supporter who thinks that Hillary is pretty. Not that it's a quality for POTUS.

Her problems have nothing to do with weight. Or age. Or dress. Or anything half so superficial.

And personally, I think John McCain could benefit from some Just For Men and a set of sweet muttonchops. Or a Fu Manchu. It's his call.
