Baldness Gap

A couple of months ago, NPR science reporter Robert Krulwich did a cold war analysis on baldness. You can see that the Russians alternate between baldies and hairies even up to this day, with Vladimir Putin (who has even less on top than me) to Dmitri Medvedev (hairy).
The US on the other hand, has had Dwight Eisenhower, who ran against the equally folically challenged Adlai Stevenson, and Gerald Ford. If Ford had gone the route of Joe Biden and received hair plugs back in the early seventies, maybe history would be dramatically different.
