The more we think about it, the harder it is to decide whether winning the presidency of the United States would be the best or worst birthday present ever.
On one hand, it's an immense honor that automatically enters you into the annals of American history. And if you're the politically ambitious type, it gives you a chance to enact the big changes you'd always sworn you'd make if you were in the country's driver seat.
But on the other hand, there's a reason why those who become president always seem to age rapidly before their term is up. The massive responsibility you have over the lives of millions of people and the security of the free world itself arguably makes the presidency the most stressful job in the world.
And before he even arrives for his first day in the White House, President-Elect Joe Biden's newly celebrated birthday will make one record he's breaking even harder to beat.
