Recent trip to the Far East?

Posted By on Sat, Mar 31, 2007 at 5:26 PM

From the Wall Street Journal:

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson faces a sartorial problem partly due to his ever-fluctuating weight. He insists on buttoning his suit jacket, which often looks like it's about to burst open. "It's pretty obvious we don't have an image consultant," says spokesman Guillermo Meneses.

Republican hopeful Mike Huckabee had to replace his entire wardrobe after being diagnosed with diabetes in 2003 and shedding more than 100 pounds.

He now favors two handmade suits he purchased on a recent trip to the Far East. "Oh, maybe I wasn't supposed to say that,'' says spokeswoman Alice Stewart. "Buy American, you know.''

I hope this doesn't mean he's traveling with that strange Indian evangelist K.A. Paul again.
