Plus-size New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced today that he will not run for president in 2012, and thus he will be spared the slander and weight jokes that surely would have accompanied more time in the national political limelight. Of course, the governor, who for reasons of personal sanity has not publicly disclosed his weight, didn’t put it in exactly those words. He just said he won’t run because he loves being governor of New Jersey. The governor’s withdrawal from the race does raise a question of whether Americans would elect a plus-size president. Rumors of a Christie candidacy in the past few weeks have been accompanied by a barrage of media coverage either stigmatizing the governor for his size or questioning whether an obese candidate is healthy enough to serve as a U.S. president.
