image for Obama looks wan
Obama declares himself fit and healthy

Close friends of President-elect, Barak Obama have secretly become worried over the future president's health.

"He's looking very drawn," said one close friend, who preferred to be called 'M'. "I think the election has taken it's toll, he can barely climb the stairs without his secret service bodyguards helping him."

Obama won the presidency in electric style and has wowed audiences across the world with his vim and vigour, but of late appears to have lost a considerable amount of weight.

Newly appointed White House officials have denied that the future leader of the free world has any health concerns. "Barak's as healthy as a horse," said General Incursion, future Chief of Staff, who is from Texas. "He could hog tie a rhino and still come back for three giraffes and a hippo."

It has not taken long for satirical cartoonists on Capitol Hill to latch onto Obama's Victoria Beckham-esque figure, depicting him almost skeletal in appearance, with his skin taught and drawn.

In a recent Letterman interview he accepted questions from the audience, but skirted the question over his health by going into a tuberculous like coughing fit.

"He's going to be America's greatest president," Hillary Clinton replied when questioned. "Even better than my husband. He's fit and healthy with many long years ahead of him. He is also faithful to Michelle," she added with a grimace.
