Jenny Craig, Meet Haley Barbour


Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is a man of his word, and to divine whether he will run for president, you just have to keep an eye on his waistline.

"If you see I lose 40 pounds, you'll know I'm either running or got cancer," Barbour told a roundtable of reporters a year ago.

Now, reports Politics Daily's Jill Lawrence, Barbour is getting there. Lawrence writes today: "I asked the Barbour adviser how he looks these days. 'He has lost some weight,' the adviser said. 'He hasn't lost 40 pounds. He might be halfway there. So read into that what you will.'"

A top Barbour fan in Washington mentioned the same thing to us last week -- that the governor is looking downright svelte these days.
