You Americans are way too obsessed with trivial and unimportant things. Who cares what the person weighs - fat or thin - as long as s/he can do the job? Our prime minister is quite chubby but I don't think I've ever seen one comment about his weight. We just don't care.
No, just because even if I agreed with everything a fat guy like myself said, most voters are the kind that vote by ads and not actual real research.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
