Obama is the first president in my lifetime that I can say I truly admired and loved.  There have been disappointments, but sometimes even on those I've seen brilliance.  Possibly even in the Syria crisis, which I had strong misgivings about - we have no soldiers on the ground there, no missiles fired, and Assad backed down and agreed to give up his chemical weapons.  In a situation I thought could only turn out very bad, now this looks like an incremental improvement instead.

As for his appearance?  He could look a lot of ways, it would not bother me.  He's a middle aged man, whose hair is graying and who is probably happy not to be wasting his time on grooming his hair.  No stopping of flights on a runway for an expensive and silly haircut session.  Seems like a sign of maturity and good judgement.  He also sets an example of discipline to the armed forces, as the commander in chief.

I've had a buzz cut for 25 years.  When I cut it, it is always a relief and feels good.  The start of the day is easier.

I get my hair cut very short in the past few years, too.  I let it grow out until it starts looking bad, then go back and get almost all of it taken off again. 

I envy the freedom guys have to shave their heads.  If I did that, people would be asking me if I had cancer and generally treating me weirdly.  I don't know if I could get by with a buzz cut :)

There is probably also a racial aspect.  There's a great deal of image management that is crucial for as public a person as the president (obviously!)  Obama got elected partly because both black and white people could see themselves in him.  

I look at people's facial expressions more than their hair, myself.  Probably most people do. 

Yes, Obama seems extremely capable.  And very good at keeping his balance.
