Top 10 Youngest Presidents
We were just talking about the oldest surviving presidents in Gerald Ford (who is now officially the longest lived president). So what’s young for a president? Who was the youngest President to take office? That would be Theodore Roosevelt at 42, while John Kennedy was the youngest ever elected at 43. Next, we had two presidents elected at 46 (Clinton and Grant). Two 50-year-olds round out the list as the 9th and 10th youngest presidents (Fillmore and Arthur). So I guess this means that 40-something is young for a president! Makes me not feel bad about my age!
