Politics Makes You Old

I was scanning the news online today, and came across this picture of Hillary Clinton yesterday in a television interview while visiting Turkey on US diplomatic business.

The picture below is of Hillary prior to announcing her bid for the US Presidency. Is it me, or does it seem like she's aged quite a bit in the last year or two?President Obama commented last week to an offhand comment about his age. He alluded to the seemingly rapid graying of his hair at the temples. He attributed it to the stress of the job and the many sleepless nights (I predicted this, in a sense, in a post some time back). I have political aspirations; I'd like to someday hold an elected office, but I'm starting to rethink that. It seems as though politics makes you old.
