You don’t have to be a historian to notice the physical toll that a term (or two) as President of the United States takes on a person. It’s practically written all over their faces. And hair. They tend to develop a lot more gray hair. While we’re not sure whether the older presidents coped any better with stress due to their portraits being painted rather than photographed, we can only assume that most of them wound up looking just as haggard as the following list of POTUSes did once their four to eight years were up. And just to make thinks a little more fun, we decided to put our list in order from least visibly aged to most. We have a feeling things aren’t going to bode well for FDR, but there’s still time for Obama to pass him up.
