Obama: "Oh Philly cheesesteak, how can I stay mad at you"

According to a New York Times article today, when the President addressed the American Medical Association today, "At times, Mr. Obama struck a professorial note, lecturing Americans to stop smoking — without referencing his own battles to break the habit — and to seek mammograms and colon-cancer screening. Health care reform, he said, means going for a run, going to the gym, and staying away from video games. It also, he said, means laying off junk food."

Good for him for stating an "uncomfortable truth" that needed to be said. (And said more often in coming months.)
