I like my Bill puffy, with a side of bacon.

Since Bill Clinton's heart surgery, he has lost a significant amount of weight. I've heard many a media outlet describe his new look as "healthy" and "revitalized", and to this I say "WHAT???". Has America become so obsessed with being thin that they can't see that he looks haggard, tired, worn out, and dare I say, old? I prefer my Bill Clinton a little puffy (see picture #2 for "Puffy Bill"). I hope he puts some heart-healthy weight back on. Not through Big Macs mind you, but through some healthy flax seed oil spiked shakes or something. Perhaps it is selfish of me to wish this, but I really do think the man looks better with a little meat on his bones. And while we're on the "puffy" topic, I also think that Oprah would do well to gain back a few pounds. She seems to be a much kinder person when she's in the 12-14 size range. This new under 10 look is not to my liking. Not that I am watching her show - I am not - but I still have to see her big ol' head peering back at me from the cover of her namesake birdcage liner when I'm waiting to pay at the grocery store. She makes me miss Martha Stewart who knows that at some point in a woman's life she has to choose between her face and her fanny, and she chose her face, gawd bless her.
