Obama Quits

01Mar07

Perhaps in direct response to the recent poll suggesting voters disliked candidates who smoked, Barack Obama has announced he is quitting smoking. He says he has pledged to his wife, Michelle, that he will only chew Nicotine gum from this point; surely it will help him in terms of his health and his campaign.

As the Chicago Tribune reports, Obama has indeed tried to quit smoking in the past. In his own words, “I’ve quit periodically over the last several years [but fallen back into the habit.] I’ve got an ironclad demand from my wife that in the stresses of the campaign I don’t succumb. I’ve been chewing Nicorette strenuously.”

But this time, Obama won’t just have Nicotine gum to aid him in dropping his smoking habit; he’ll have the eyes of America.
