James Madison? Abraham Lincoln? James Madison?

"If any personal description of me is thought desirable," wrote Lincoln in 1860, "it may be said I am, in height, 6'4", nearly; lean in flesh, weighing on an average 180 lbs."

That is 180 lb/ 76 inches, about 2.4 pounds per inch.

"Lincoln began losing weight in 1860. There is no quantitative data about his weight after becoming President, but many people wrote of his declining appearance and increasing thinness." It is also said that most of Abe's height was in his legs; when he sat, his torso was not over-tall.

"Madison was about five feet six inches tall. His weight hardly ever exceeded a hundred pounds."

That is 100 lb/ 66 inches. 1.5 pounds per inch.

Even accounting for differences in bone density looks like Madison, sickly thin since childhood, takes it. Lincoln would have had to weigh only 114 at his lowest to beat him out

Obama probably weighs 180, like Lincoln in 1860, and is only 6'1"...so he is out of the running...unless he runs himself down to 110 in his next term. Pray God the weight of office is not that onerous!
