More information for undecided voters

In The Rail's continuing effort to help out any undecided area voters - all three of you know your names! - here's information out of Men's Health on who is the healthiest candidate:

Age: George W. Bush, at 58, is two years younger than Sen. John Kerry. Edge to: Bush.

Height & weight: Bush is 6 feet tall and weighs 190 pounds; Kerry is 6-4 and weighs 180 pounds. Edge to: Kerry, with a body mass index of just 21.9.

Favorite sandwich: A draw since both men like peanut butter and jelly, a smart mix of energy boosting carbs and healthy fats.

Favorite cereal: Bush likes Special K; Kerry goes for Raisin bran. Edge to: It's a draw. Kerry gets more fiber, but more sugar as well.

Favorite drink: Bush likes diet soda; Kerry slurps water. Edge: Kerry, though neither drink has calories.

Favorite snack: Bush likes Cheetos and Fritos while Kerry noshes on chocolate-chip cookies. Edge to: Another draw. It's a choice between empty carbs and empty sugars.

Favorite fitness: Bush runs, lifts weights and maintains the ranch in Crawford, Texas (above); Kerry bikes, skis and windsurfs. Edge: Bush, with both aerobic and anaerobic workouts.

Winner? Too close to call.
