Obama Says He Won't Be Smoking in White House

I don't know how I missed that President-elect Obama is a smoker... (sigh)

I certainly hope he does plan to QUIT.

I'm disturbed that he seems to be trying to 'duck' the issue (meaning he's lying about it -- !!!), because this could quickly become an question of honesty, as well as concern that he's continuing with a very bad habit (and one I've always hated, personally).

Apparently he's smoked for more than two decades.

Look, we all have bad habits. But as our future President, he has a chance to be a wonderful example to others. Plus we clearly want someone who is healthy in the White House. (And we don't want to think about his second-hand smoke around his family...)

According to the above article:

Website CigarAficionado.Com says Gerald Ford, who served from 1974-77, was the last U.S. president to use tobacco on a regular basis. The White House no-smoking rule was imposed by former First Lady Hillary Clinton, now Obama's nominee for secretary of state.

Rock on, Hillary. (smile)
