Ironic Candidate
AP News May 29, 2008

Barack Obama is said to be as healthy as a horse.
A good reason why many people see him as a good presidential candidate.
He has perfect cholesterol level and blood pressure.

Obama is still young and doctors cannot find anything wrong with him.
Fortunately for him, he is the crowd favorite.

The only minor detail that was ever wrong with him was upper respiratory infections.
The irony of all this is that he is a smoker.
We all know what smoking does to the human body, but he has been trying to quit.

For many years he has been on and off smoking.
He is really working at it and is on nicorette gum.
His mother also died of ovarian cancer.

His grandfather had died of prostate cancer.
What really concerns doctors is if a father or uncle died of prostate cancer as well.
Even with all these genetic problems, Obama is the healthiest of all candidates.
