Hillary Clinton ate a tuna taco on the Ellen DeGeneres show today, to show her support for healthy eating in America.
Clinton's appearance helped kick off a YMCA program called "Box Lunch at the Y." Other aspects include an exercise program involving clam diving and musical education where participants will learn to play the flute.
Clinton is not the first presidential candidate on the diet-and-exercise bandwagon. Mike Huckabee made the issue an important part of his work as Governor of Arkansas in recent years.
On DeGeneres' show, Clinton emphasized how she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had been working on eating healthy for years. "Bill really learned to love going down for tuna taco, even when I wasn't home," said the former First Lady.
Critics were quick to pounce on the situation, with Rush Limbaugh saying this was "just another example of Hillary Clinton trying to run our lives - a vagitarian form of HillaryCare." Republican candidate Tom Tancredo was particularly outraged at the "Cunning Linguistics" aspect of the Y program, as he has made "English First" a part of his campaign.
Clinton blew off such criticism: "We all have to grow and learn for the future. When I was in college I used to eat all kinds of meat, and I loved chocolate so much that one of my boyfriends used to take me to Pennsylvania, up Hershey Highway. These days I've learned a healthier lifestyle and hopefully everyone can, but I would never force it on anyone."
