It’s the elephant in the room...er...was. Now the media’s talking about potential presidential candidate Chris Christie’s weight. CNN has more...

REPORTER:“Governor Chris Christie’s profile gets bigger, so does his size. Now that he’s a national figure, comedians are starting to make his waistline a punchline.”
GOV. CHRISTIE: “I’ll let all of your audience in on a little secret Wolf, I’m overweight. The thing I feel most guilty about? My weight.”

The New Jersey Governor has the political scales teetering -- will he, or won’t he run? The Daily Beast’s Lois Romano weighs in on the fat factor...

“Let’s be clear: Chris Christie is not likely to run for president because he hasn’t lost the requisite weight needed to mount a campaign. Neither has the New Jersey governor started jogging publicly with his security detail to show how fit he is. So I say he does not go.”

Not everyone is matching fat with bad. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter instead takes a swipe at President Obama’s figure. The Daily Caller has the audio.

“I like his look... I think it’s going to be very appealing if he were to run for president after you know, four years of this big-eared bean pole in the White House destroying the economy. I think a fat man will be very attractive.”

The ladies of The View are tackling the subject, too. But Elizabeth Hasselback is asking: Is this a gender issue?

HASSELBECK: “Chris Christie offers something that say Rick Perry and Bachmann don’t.”
BEHAR: “Krispy Kremes”
HASSELBECK: “Hold on, wait a minute now, imagine this conversation about an overweight female candidate. We would be besides ourselves.”

So when will we know if New Jersey’s head honcho is running? The Daily Mail writes...

“The popular 49-year-old is reportedly expected to make a decision early next week, after continued pressure from top Republicans.”
