    have said about Hillary's weight, Bill Cinton's eating and weight, and the very healthy and curvy shape of Michelle Obama, Chris Christie needs to STFU.

    He is a public figure and a putative presidential candidate.  As a result his health and size are a matter of public comment.

    As for worrying about what his children think, I have no sympathy for that.  None.  His youngest is ten and I'll bet you anything she has already heard people say similar things about him before.  If not, she is old enough to start learning the truth about the health risks a man of his size faces.   She should have already heard it from him himself.

    But all this is good for the Blue Team.  Every time Christie flies off the handle and fails to behave in a mature reflective manner about his weight or anything else, he looks like the petulant bully he is.  That is not the demeanor a lot of folks want from their president, and his hairtrigger temper is a legitimate reason for him to be discredited in the eyes of the voters.

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
