Who was the President who once weighed 300 pounds? Taft! (He needed a diet!) OK--no more Shaft parodies, please. :)

Right on? Uh, no. Taft's conservative policies deviated so much from those of his benefactor Teddy Roosevelt that TR had to run against him, won most of the primaries, then had the nomination stolen from him at the convention, then ran a third-party campaign and finished second. Taft is the only major-party nominee to finish third since 1860, mainly because TAFT did NOT stand for "Take Advice From Theodore," as Democrats joked that it would in 1908. But then, he never wanted to be President. His wife Helen wanted it for, uh, him. He wanted to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Harding made him that in 1921, and he's the only man to have been both a President and a Justice. And compared to today's Republicans, he wasn't especially conservative anyway, even if he was a Skull & Bones Yalie.
