Should a Haitian president age after the presidency?

I was listening to Haitian radio an the host says, if a man, or woman, becomes president of Haiti and does not age considerably after five years, that means he/she did not do a good job.

There is so much stress waiting for the president of Haiti, the radio host says, there is no way for him/her not to age and have lots of gray hair at the end of his presidency.

Being president is the most stressfull job in the world.

Do you believe that the stress level of Haitian presidents are less or more than in other countries?

A president in America is under a giant microscope, and is held accountable for his actions.

He also knows that he is not above the law, and is scrutinized by the citizens.

It is shame that Preval has even age enough in maturity to at least clean the grounds of the National Palace.

To think that haitians have voted for his presidency twice.

Now they are getting ready to vote his representative, Mirlande for President (so it looks like), so that he can control the country for another five with his INITE Senators and Deputies.
