When Walters' asked Christie about "the elephant in the room," the New Jersey native admitted to being "more than a little" overweight. But he rejected claims that his size would bar him from the nation's highest office.
I’ve done this job pretty well. I think people watched me for the last number of weeks during Hurricane Sandy doing 18-hour days and getting right back up the next day and still being just as effective in the job, so i don’t think that will be a problem.
Walters' interview with Christie, part of her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2012" yearly special, airs Wednesday night at 9:30pm. You can watch a clip of the segment, which begins at the 1:50 mark, below:
