Chris Christie talks weighty matters with Letterman

But the governor's tendency to work with Democrats -- including President Obama -- hasn't sat so well with everyone. Christie was pointedly not invited to speak at CPAC this year -- a fact that didn't seem to bother him too much.

(CBS News) On "Late Show with David Letterman," N.J. Gov. Chris Christie took on the issue of his weight and David Letterman's jokes on the subject on Monday night's broadcast.

Watch a portion of the interview, which was featured on "CBS This Morning," in the video below.

Christie said he has a "deep and abiding love" for the host, and read some of his favorite jokes Letterman has made about his weight, saying he has actually liked roughly about "40 percent" of them over the years.
