Why Chris Christie won’t be president
I'm not a fan of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, although I respected his bipartisan stewardship during Hurricane Sandy. But I've defended him, on "NOW With Alex Wagner," to offer one example, from charges that his weight disqualifies him from being president. Obesity is first and foremost a health matter, even if scolds try to make it a matter of discipline. There's also a huge class bias in our preference for thinness today.
