    I don't think that's a great shot of him at all, he looks pissed off as if he's been sitting for 8 hours with no blackberry or water breaks. I hate the tie, the shirt is not a crisp enough white, and don't get me onto the suit. He's a great looking man, however, I feel that photo doesn't do him any favours.

    I like it. He is who he is.

    Most of my clothing is ill-fitting too, I ain't got no tailor! They could have made it a glamour shot, but it's more just a snapshot.

    I just wish he would have grown out a 'fro. That would be awesome.

    For his safety, I am sure he is going to keep that haircut for the rest of his term. Even an inch above the forehead, any foreseeable sight of nappyness will be too controversial.

    Take a good look at him now because he'll never look this good again. All Presidents age exponentially in office. The stress of the job really takes its toll.

    What would be so wrong with a little smile in that portrait? Would that make it appear like he doesn't take himself seriously or something?

    Flash those pearly whites.

    Grimm is too hot to be president. There are limations to the hotness allowed, it's in the constitution.

    Oh lord! If you run a country, Grimm, It would be fucking hilarious! If you ever become the president/prime minister of somewhere, I'm gonna move there (unless its Canada. The cold will kill me.)

    No worries. His hair will be white by the end of his first term. He's taking on one of the stressful jobs on the planet.

    Oh yes. I remember someone making a comparison shot of both Bush and Clinton during their running (2000 and 1992) and the end of their two consecutive terms (2001 and 2008) and what a difference. Gray/white hair. And just for laughs, the person adding John McCain's current picture and next to it, at the end of his presidency, a picture of that thing from Tales of the Crypt I wish I could find it.
