The Presidency is No Fountain of Youth. Aging Barack Obama.
“When I started this campaign, everybody called me a young man—they’re not calling me that anymore,” Barack Obama remarked in August on the campaign trail. “I'm getting gray hair—running for president will age you quick.”
If Obama thought campaigning for president had grayed his mane at warp speed, just wait till he starts working in the Oval Office. “The reality of it is that he will probably age 20 years in the first term,” says Deirdre Hogan, of the Toronto-based AprilAge Development Inc., whose aging software has been used in hospitals and science museums for almost a decade.
