Throwback Politician Photos Show a Different Side to These Well-Known Pols

Looking at throwback pictures of famous people is practically a hobby thanks to viral hashtags like #ThrowbackThursday and #FlashbackFriday. It’s incredibly fun to compare what we and others looked like years or even decades ago. This is especially true of politicians. They cultivate such a specific image, but many of these photos were floating around before their PR teams were able to have any control. In a way, throwback politician photos of our most prized elected officials show a more human side that we don’t often see when they’re in office or on the campaign trail.

Here are some throwback politician photos that may just blow your mind; an intimate look at some of our best-known politicians before they assumed office. Which one is your favorite? Be sure to SHARE these great photos with your friends on Facebook!
