The Jeff Lebowski of presidents

"Being president is a grueling job. It ages its occupants fast. Look at how President Bush looks a lot more than eight years older than he did in 2000. ... There is an exception: Ronald Reagan. He didn’t age all that much in office, even though he was inaugurated just shy of his 70th birthday. He wore his duties lightly, always ready with a joke or a corny story. He slept a lot, and soundly. He was the Jeff Lebowski of presidents, 'takin’ er easy for all us sinners.'"
