2. I Guess Maybe He Had Talked With Sen. Barbara Boxer And Asked Her Who Her Plastic Surgeon Is.....

because Boxer looks younger than I recall as well and I met Boxer in person a couple of years ago and she looks a lot younger now.

I'm wondering if this is the new thing for politicians to do.

12. He's had work done. Take a look at before and after photos if you have time.


Also, plastic surgery isn't always an improvement. He looks like a muppet now: especially since his upper lip seems to be frozen at times.

But it is his life, and he can do what he wants with it.

For the life of me there is another politician, Not Edward Musky, but another politician (US) that looks a lot like John Kerry, but is older.

I can't remember his name, and it is driving me

18. SOmeone posted before/after pics of him a few months back

It looked like a combo of botox and a chin/jaw job. I've had botox done. Not to the frozen face point, so maybe wasn't enough, but thought the result was just 'meh' for the money it cost at the time.

If it makes him happy.

29. I'm just waiting on the OP

about "who" he was wearing at his last press conference.

The TV news outlets seem to be editing out the red carpet chit-chat that precedes these events, so we may never know the answers to today's most pressing questions.

8. I wonder if he is on a medication --

that causes facial bloating like a cortisone.

I first thought face lift, but face lifts don't cause your face to be fuller, just tighter.

25. You might be right about Cortisone. Remember Jerry Lewis several years ago when he hosted his

His Muscular Dystrophy telethon? He was blown up like a fat frog. He had the classic "moon face". A year later he was back to normal.

I hope Kerry doesn't get the "moon face" if is is Cortisone.

49. It's a sign that his appearance is super important to him.

Sometimes that can be a sign of a character flaw. He did like to show off his Wind Surfing in his 2004 Campaign. I remember being horrified when that photo was put out by the campaign. I felt he was "showing off."

53. Looking and sounding like you had a stroke

does not inspire confidence in somone in such a high-powered position on the world stage. The slighty slurred speech, the droopy eye, and the slight droop in the mouth are all on the same side of his face.

51. I'm glad we're asking this about men, because it illustrates the absurdity of it

And I'm not putting down the OP for asking--I think we should examine men's appearance as much as we do women's for a while, so that more folks will wake up to how viscerally ridiculous it is when the MSM focuses on women leaders' "looks" and blames them for aging and blames them for spending money to look more youthful.

In that vein, it looks like he's had a neck/chin lift and at least an upper bleph--the latter of which can be done for medical reasons, because sagging eyes can begin to impede vision in one's 60s/70s, esp if you've got a connective tissue disorder, in which ptosis can be common (and the Marfan's look does seem plausible). They haven't done a forehead lift, it appears, to compensate, which may be why his brows are hanging so much closer to his eyes now. OTOH, forehead and mask lifts on men do look pretty jarring (see Kenny Rogers or Mickey Rourke), so I can see why he held off.

I hope he's not on steroids for anything too serious.
