    I think the election is simply taking its toll on Obama.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the campaign were turning it grayer. Look at photos of anyone before and after the presidency. Well, aside from those who were gray already.

    I thought I saw a bit more gray in that 30-minute block and figured the campaign was taking its toll. I'm predicting a full head of gray within 4 years.

    he probably just forgot his just for men treatment. Despite everyone considering him young he's actually a middle aged man and they happen to be prone to graying/balding hair.

    I wouldn't read to much into it... my dad's starting to gray and he's about Obama's age. Plus, Obama's hair is black, so it's bound to stand out.

    I noticed his hair seemed shorter, but I didn't think it was grayer.

    They say that Queen Charlotte's hair went grey overnight after she found that her husband King George III had become insane.

    Perhaps the insane situation that America is in right now with regard to financial, terrorism and environmental threats is what's making Barack go grey too. After all, he'll be married to the country for the next few years.

    Geez he could have just bought some of my DNA :D
    I started bustin out grey way back in the earlier days, try 18!

    You know thinkin about it now im pritty sure the amount of hair one grows determines how soon it will start to lose its colour. The big facter is how dark in colour thus how much pigmint the body must produce

    See a blond uses less pigmint but a dark haired person who also grows a rug on a chest is using up tons of pigmint so he is more likley to run out and start sprouting greys

    Of course if he ate more vitamins that stimulate pigmint production then he might be albe to compinsate and hold off early onset grey.:)+

    Sadly, the hair colour busniess is quite luctractive indeed and these evil corps have gone to great lenghes keeping this a secret from the masses of would-be youthfully coloured mops. A shame indeed :(

    Yep thats my thought for the day. Now back to the 'obama is cool or crazy muslim?" debate

    Thread is useless without pictures.

    Odd to see that used in a clean context.

    I noticed this after he won the primary. He could be getting gray from campaigning (I bet it's stressful, or at least tiresome) or he could have dyed his hair blacker during the primaries to appear younger, but it is possible that grayer hair makes him seem less niave or something.

    When your have short black hair, faking grey is pretty damn hard. I think we'd've heard of it, through leaks or disclosure forms that show a high-priced stylist on retainer.
