Why have we never had a bald president? Does a superb head of hair really matter?

"It is the essence of a true democracy that people should be respected individually, not simply collectively. It is also of the essence of a democracy that differences and distinctions are recognised and, where relevant, honoured. A democracy should be above all a thoughtful type of society, in these and other respects."

No.  And post presidency, he had to have half his head shaved for surgery.

Eisnehower was bald.  Ford was balding.

But he had a lot of it, especially after leaving office.

Also, Martin Van Buren was bald:


As was John Quincy Adams:
