7. When you look at the vapid newscasters in 2015 all of them are pretty.

Never used to be that way. Newscasters and reporters all used to look like Lou Grant on tv (Played by
the teddy bear adorable but not pretty Ed Asner)

But in 1960 Presidential debates, Nixon won the debate for those that listened on Radio
JFK won the debate for those that watched on TV
Nixon heavily sweated and in doing so, did not look as marvelous as JFK did

Eisenhower in 1952 called the bald Adlai an egghead (see:Vincent Price in the later Batman show),
and Eisenhower wore a helmet wore a hat wore a beret wore a cap
Funny thing was, Adlai was the far better person, the far smarter person, would have made a great President
and Eisenhower was just as bald as Adlai. But Eisenhower covered it up more often

Would Ronald Reagan have won in 1980 without cheating and without the jet black hair dye or shoe polish he used in his hair? No.
(Mitt Romney couldn't even win using the Ronald Reagan shoe polish because well, he was Mitt Romney and he never won anything or ever did anything in his life)

It is true, if a Presidential candidate looks like a beat up pugilist, he is not going to become President.

Of course, the person in politics I admire most was Liberal Populist John V. Lindsay.
As Marcia Brady would say, He was Dreamy, wasn't he? He would have been a great President
(He actually in one primary in his short run in 1972 got more votes than George McGovern the nominee did.)

as for dentists-
Is it safe?
(legendary Sir Laurence Olivier, who most people consider the greatest actors actor of all time,
with Dustin Hoffman who ain't too shabby)
