The CDC is having a conference this week. "Weight of the Nation" is focusing on the obesity epidemic. The CDC goes so far as to recommend restricting things such as the availability of unhealthy foods and beverages, institute smaller portion sizes and to limit advertisements of unhealthy products.
Former President Clinton was a featured speaker at the event on Monday.
Former President Clinton "fueled up" for the even the night before by dining on a double cheeseburger, french fries, onion rings and an apple pie milkshake.

Hmm...a blog and Freeper is your proof he is a hypocrite? LMAO. If the guy was fat I'd say you had a case, but give me a break.
Anyhow as to the ONLY story here. Yeah, sorry but America is a fat country. Strike that...an obese country, and children are suffering from this disease which spawns other diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
We have horrible portion contol, we make bad decisions regarding what we wat, and we don't exercise enough. Many stuudies have shown that, we don't need the UN to tell us what we already know.

Since obviously you think I am just making this stuff up so you can show your level of education, here is the ORIGINAL Washington Post article complete with a photo of Bill and his bag 'o fat. If you had gone to the ABC blog you would have seen the link to the WP article.
It doesn't matter if he is fat or not. He is a primary speaker at an event that is preaching against what he is doing. That's really the type of person I want making recommendations to me.
