Bill Clinton: Don't Eat Like Me

Political Hotsheet reports that Bill Clinton blames his recent heart troubles on the way he ate as a child. He realizes that this trend is still continuing in today's children; it will affect them as adults the same way it affected him.

"I ate too much fried food, too much ice cream, too much everything," added the former president.

Speaking of former Arkansas governors, Michelle Obama is to appear on Mike Huckabee's Fox News Show to discuss Lets Move!. I may find Huckabee politically repulsive, but I greatly admire him for saving his own life when the doctors told him he was eating himself into his grave. He was diagnosed with Type II diabetes and ten years to live. He began to eat less. When enough of the weight came off, he became a runner and then a marathoner! He is now a health crusader and wrote the book, Quit Digging Your Grave With a Knife and Fork. It's great to see people put aside politics to discuss an issue that affects everyone.

See you in Arkansas.
