Skip to comments.Clinton: 'I was a fat band boy'

Former President Bill Clinton said his weight problem and brush with death are the catalysts behind his foundation's initiative of tackling childhood obesity.
Once famous for his love of fast food, Clinton told CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta that bad health habits since childhood led to his September 2004 quadruple bypass surgery. That operation, he said, opened his eyes to a larger issue, and he turned his attention to the problem of overweight American children.
"The brush with death I had maybe had the biggest impact of all," Clinton recalled. "I realized that one more time I've been given another chance, and I wanted to make the most of it."
Clinton, who admits "I was the fat band boy," said he knows what unhealthy eating habits can do to a young body.

"Clinton, who admits "I was the fat band boy," said he knows what unhealthy eating habits can do to a young body."
Still is a fat band boy, the band is all girl.
Were, or should have been.
He looked healthier when he was tubby.....
Guaranteed, he used this line on women. Like Otter and "Fawn Leibowitz" in Animal House.
(Tears rolling down face..) That is the funniest/sad thing I've ever seen!
That there, er, uhhhh....moving picture almost done made muh bladder go 'n bust isself!!
Well I was a skinny band boy...........so there!
He was all about Quarter Pounders w/ Cheese.
Didn't he used to visit McD's every now and then to suprise people?
That is...both disturbing and strangely mesmerizing.
another chance at what? Screwin' in the whorite house?
Wanna make most of it? STFU and fade away you disgracia!
Damned it...which is it...are the evil Republicans starving the nations youth to death, or are the evil Republicans fattening them up for the slaughter???
I saw him on Fox News yesterday. He was at a ceremony of some sort, can't remember what.
He was standing still when the camera turned to him, and I kid you not, I thought it was a full-sized cardboard cutout picture of Clinton, not the real thing. His color was gray and he looked terrible.
Anyone else see this?
> his foundation's initiative of tackling childhood obesity.
He's been shocked at all the chubby interns applying for
jobs at the "library".
