(Newser) – Barbara Walters unveiled her most fascinating person of the year last night: General David Petraeus. The sex-scandal-plagued former CIA director's extramarital affair and shocking resignation was a story that Walters deemed "irresistible" during her annual special. "The keeper of the nation's secrets unable to conceal his own." She didn't actually interview Petraeus, but she did sit down with others who made the list—including Chris Christie, who said it's "ridiculous" that critics think he's too overweight to be president, the AP reports.
