Would you like to be president of the USA? Who wouldn’t, right?! You only get to decide the most important questions of the most prosperous and most powerful nations in the world.

Being the president of the USA is probably one of the most stressful jobs in the world. If you are not so sure about it, you can check out in the gallery below comparative photos of 10 presidents before and after they served their country on the higher possible position. The stress definitely left its mark on all of them.
Most of the presidents on this list spent at this function at least four years, and some would say that ageing is just doing it job, like on any of us.

Barack Obama just turned 55 years old and his presidency just finished. Check out the comparative photos from 2008 and 2016. Do you still find the President of the USA job so tempting?
