Prejudice or what?

Much has been made of the amazing and historic election of Barack Obama as President of the United States. All the commentators marvel at the election of a black man to the most powerful political office in the world.

But as I saw a photo of him emerging from the gym yesterday morning it did pass through my mind whether an ugly and overweight person could ever be elected to the highest office.

I doubt it.
