    Are we becoming less image-conscious as a nation?

    Or are we becoming more so?

    I say the latter...what say you? And why?

    more image-conscious. It's because of television, magazines, internet, etc.

    Now that is an interesting question...

    Would you elect a "fat" president?

    What if that said president had a thyroid problem and was uncontrollably fat?

    I think it would be difficult for a fat person to win the Presidency.

    How long ago was that again?

    What was the state of the media?

    What was the definition of beauty at the time?

    Were thin women in?

    Or volumptoush*cough*fat women in?

    Or did you even stop to consider that before you thought to yourself "I know who...I'll show him!?"

    I didn't call any names.

    Doesn't look too good for the Newster....if his own supporters consider him to be a fatso.

    Newt has other problems besides being fat that will keep him from being nominated, let alone elected.
