Barack Obama seems to be winning the race for president. Next month he is said to be posing for the cover of “Men’s Health.” Personally, it makes me happy to know that a man that could be our next president, values health and fitness. Taking care of your body sounds like a simple task, yet very few politicians make it a priority.
Next month, as the November issues of magazines start hitting newsstands, several of them will likely boast the faces of Barack Obama and John McCain (apparently there’s some big news peg). But the one we’ll be most interested in is Men’s Health. Keith Kelly reports that their profile of the Democratic presidential candidate will include segments from an August interview, and images shot by the magazine’s photographers. Sure, Men’s Vogue has him on the coverof their October issue, shot by Annie Leibovitz, but do they talk about his infamous gym routine? Nope! And that’s what we want to know.
We’re already aware that the Illinois senator records his careful workouts, and uses a combination of free weights and machines. And we know that he may work out up to three times a day, without sweating. But does he eat oatmeal (with antioxidant-rich blueberries) every morning, and a slice of avocado and fourteen almonds at 11 a.m.? Does he have six different crunch routines for guaranteed rock-hard abs? And most important, will he pose shirtless and dehydrated like every other good Men’s Health cover model? He should. Because if he has anything McCain doesn’t that can win over those stubborn Hillary voters, it’s beefcake (source).
Working out is a healthy way to relieve the pressures and stresses of life. Barack could be one of our healthiest presidents yet. If his workout routine is a reflection of his work ethic then we are in for a good term.
