The Hill – Barbour’s dramatic weight loss fuels speculation

Unlike past efforts, the governor says he is losing weight in a healthy way. “I’ve tried every other crazy method in the world but you just lose weight and you gain it back.”

Christie isn’t the only GOP governor with a shrinking waistline. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour’s dramatic weight loss has fueled speculation of a possible 2012 presidential run.

Asked whether he, too, would like to be president some day, Christie laughed. “No way! Look at me!”
