Presidential career may take a serious toll on your health and looks: at the end of day everything that you’re doing will have impact on the whole nation. Just take a look at these before-and-after photographs of American presidents to see how the time in the office affected their looks.
20. Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln became the president in March of 1861. By the time his run was over in 1865, he seemed much more tired. But he did get a hipper cut of his beard in the office, so there’s that.
19. Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt was the president from 1901 to 1909, and he seems all jolly about leaving the post. He was famous for his “cowboy” persona and a whole spectrum of interests. Way to keep the youthful spirit! No wonder he looks great at this post-office shot.
18. William Howard Taft
William Howard Taft’s term was 1909-1913, and he barely changed over the course of these four years. We still envy this luscious mustache of his.
