Speak Up: Is Obama Too Fit?

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal questions Barack Obama's ability to run our nation. Not because of his views on the war or on taxes, but because he is too fit. WTF?

In a country where 66 percent of the voting-age population are overweight and 32 percent are obese, could Obama's fitness be an issue? Obama openly claims to work out and eat healthy — and he's even quit smoking (yay!). Folks are wondering if Obama is too hard to relate to as more than half of the nation is struggling with weight issues. John McCain on the other hand, doesn't lift weights (cause he can't due to an injury) and has expressed his love for junk food. Obviously, I think that having a fit president would be fabulous, but as much as I love health and fitness it's not going to be a factor in who I vote for.

So what do you guys think about all this? Do you care about our next president's health? Does it matter to you if he does or does not work out, or if he does or does not eat junk food? Do you think that being overly fit could hurt a presidential candidate's chances of taking over the White House? Speak up and share your thoughts below.
