Obama Too Skinny To Be Prez?

Check out this article from the Wall Street Journal about the possibility of Obama being too skinny for main stream America.

Too Fit to Be President? - WSJ.com

The best part though is this picture comparing past presidents' height and weight. What's wrong with this picture?

Just call me "Abe"!
When I got married, I was 6'4" and 165 lbs. My wife took that as a challenge. When I hit 205 I said "enough" and dropped back to 195.
That was 21 years ago. I haven't seen 195 since.
I guess I missed my window of opportunity for President.

"I won't vote for any beanpole guy," another Clinton supporter wrote last week on a Yahoo politics message board.

Haha, thats funny, never realized how skinny he was. Although, never realized McCain was soo little either?

Hypersensitivity! At most, you could say it's a sterotype.
It's quite a stretch to say it's RACIST!

That's just how they shut down any possibility of critical debate
on issues. Make you afraid to say anything, and they win by
default.

I just thought it was funny. I didn't see any impropriety in the photo whatsoever.

Right! I was just generalizing from the statement that it could be
construed as racist.
