5’7″

I think there are some good reasons why John McCain would not be a good choice for the next President of the United States of America. But, for the record …

  1. I am (perhaps not quite) 5’7″ tall.
  2. I think 5’7″ is a perfectly adequate height for President.

    I love the comments on the other site. “5’7″… that’s an actor’s height, not a leader’s!” As if somehow a) height determines profession and b) actors can’t be leaders. Hehehe.

    “that’s an actor’s height, not a leader’s!”

    Reagan was 6’1”, maybe that’s why he switched careers…

    Slightly more seriously it was pointed out on another blog that ejecting from a plane imposes ferocious compressive pressures on the spine which can cause someone who goes through it to lose an inch or more in height. McCain has punched out at least twice (not to mention the deforming effects of years of torture) so you can only guess at what his height “should” be…

    Oh, and George W Bush was also a fighter pilot and he was shorter than both Al Gore and John Kerry:-)
