    Christie is an a very good place right now taking his political image to new heights. A cheap show like that could only damage him.

    if he's going to make a run for president, he should probably lose some weight. i don't say that because i have anything against him for his weight; i just recognize that it would create a problem for him. the presidency is at least in part the ultimate popularity contest.

    that being said, doing it on the biggest loser would be ill advised.

    Agreed. It is not healthy for a man of his age to carry all that weight and then expect to run for president. Its a recipe for potential disaster.

    He needs to shed the pounds but I don't think a reality TV show is the place for it if he wants to be POTUS one day. On the other hand, I think part of his appeal is he doesn't come across as a pompous elitist but is very down to earth. Maybe if they did a special edition of just public figures such as Candy Crowley, Ruben Studdard, Jane Kennedy, Rick Warren, etc. and the show agrees in advance to be extra careful not to treat contestants with disrespect. No yelling, no man-boob t-shirt shots, etc. Still probably not but only under those conditions.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    How so? My Dad is still living at 68 at over 300 pounds and 6 foot tall yet my mother a small petite woman of 5'2" has been dead for 3 years now at 61.

    I still don't think Democrats will really make him their nominee for president despite his current popularity among Democrats.

    Glad to hear that your dad is going strong. Some people defy the odds. Others fall victim to them.

    I have to believe somebody of Christies size and age gets medical advice all the time to lose weight.

    As did my Dad from Mom and others. I don't think cancer targets people by size
