'Time' Cover: Captions Chris Christie 'The Elephant in the Room'

This week's issue of Time magazine features three articles on New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie, who won re-election by a landslide on Tuesday (November 5th) and is widely expected to be a presidential contender in 2016.

But what's raised a few eyebrows is the cover, which features a silhouette of Christie's ample profile, along with the headline, "The Elephant in the Room."

While that refers to the Republican Party's elephant mascot, it also pretty clearly refers to Christie's weight. The 51-year-old Christie had lap-band surgery in February, and told the New York Times earlier this week that he's more than halfway to his weight loss goal.

Christie hasn't shied away from poking fun at his own weight, and has said that it's, quote, "fair game" for comedians.

Gov. Chris Christie will appear on four Sunday morning talk shows.  The Republican governor will make the rounds to NBC's "Meet the Press," CBS's "Face the Nation," ABC's "This Week," and "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace.
