Teddy Roosevelt sort of was obese but your right for 80 years we have not had one that huge. Obesity should not be a hindrance of becoming a president. Dam Cheney got a heart problem that's more dangerous than being obese.
The far right will probably sit out and again lose the election to Hilary but Christie and Rubio will make up votes from dems.
I don't think it should be either. I just don't think the American people would ever elect an obese man or woman to the presidency. There was much speculation around whether or not FDR would have been elected if radio wasn't the primary means of communication. Voting based on appearances is dumb, but it seems to me looking back through the last dozen presidents or so that it is a factor.

The RNC doesn't endorse as a group. Taft was morbidly obese, and a Republican.
Thus why I said last 80 years or so. I know Taft was morbidly obese. That was also a hundred years ago. Our views on appearances has changed greatly in the last 100 years.
