Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, seeking to rally the value voters in the 2008 Presidential contest, says “I have the credentials and the integrity, and if I can whip his body into shape, I can whip anything into shape.” 

“You know,” he says, “I lost a shitload of weight.  I can lead this nation.”  He found that he had type 2 diabetes several years ago, and subsequently underwent a vigorous exercise program, and a South Beach-type diet, before he lost over a hundred pounds.  Former President Bill Clinton, by contrast, used the South Beach diet and exercise, but became fatter and subsequently underwent a cardiac bypass operation.

Star Jones, who also credits a diet and exercise regimen with a nearly 100 pound weight loss, so far has not chosen to seek the Republican nomination.
