Historically, the stresses of the office of the presidency have seemed to age the president at a much faster rate than his fellow citizens.  It's a rare case that their hair doesn't gray practically overnight, but more than that, there's an indefinable weariness from managing so many of the world's burdens.

Though President Obama has done remarkably well thus far, save for a slight graying of the hair, Bloomberg's Businessweek expects the next four years to be far more challenging than the last.

"This issue of Bloomberg Businessweek reports on the road ahead for President Obama as he faces the fiscal cliff and crucial decisions for the future of the economy, business, and defense," they explain.  "The opposition remains considerable, and no matter how successful he is, the hardest job in the world will take its toll."

Here's what they think Obama will look line in 2016, when he leaves office:

As Business Insider notes, though, Businessweek was anticipating a difficult next four years no matter who was elected.

Here's what they think Romney would have looked like in 2016 had he won:
