We know, we know. The powers that be want us to lose weight and live forever. But have you noticed how Miss Hillary, thigh/cellulite challenged from day one, has porked up of late? That's the gal who's smarter than you and me and knows what's best for us. Like everything that's politically incorrect and dares not speak its name, excess political poundage in a female Democrat candidate is crying out for coverage. The Hillary "Yes You Can Diet" could be the next big thing.
Then there's Rachael Ray, even more influential in a deep, dark and delicious way than Oprah herself. Eat your heart, out, Hillary. What if Rache came out in support of some presidential wannabe? She would never, but -- like Emeril with his "Bam!" -- the divine Miss Ray has infiltrated our everyday experimental kitchen kitsch, lending an extra gig and giggle to our every culinary foray. You cook, girl.
