NO LEAN AND HUNGRY LOOK FOR THEM:

New study shows heavy male politicians considered more reliable, honest than thinner counterparts (Rich Schapiro, 1/29/10, NY DAILY NEWS)

Male political candidates looking for an edge should hit their local Dairy Queen. Female pols would be better off hitting the gym.

Researchers found that pudgy male politicos are considered more reliable, honest and even more inspiring than their thinner counterparts.

For female pols, thin is still in, according to a new study.

"A candidate's physical appearance plays a greater role in evaluation than we have thought in the past," said Dr. Elizabeth Miller," a political scientist at the University of Missouri and co-author of the study.


They're jollier too.
