WASHINGTON - As America goes to the polls today a leading image consultant says the President Barack Obama will become more white if re-elected to the White House.
Obama is slightly ahead of Republican Mitt Romney in most polls and is expected to edge home in a much tighter contest than four year ago against John McCain.
Image consultant Eve Mitchell today told how Obama's hair is whiter, (with a few shades of grey) today than it was four years ago when he was elected. TV documentaries and news reports showing a much darker haired Obama during the 2008 election campaign "Its normal" she said "the stress of the job and of course natural aging - the same happened to Tony Blair in the UK, and although they weren't dark haired when they started - Bush and Clinton here in the States"
Twitter was awash with comments today. "This will make him more popular in the deep south" said one user. 'I hope if The President doesn't opt for a Donald style toupee' said another.
