"If nominated, I will not run. And if elected, I will not serve," said Lester, who just came back from reporting in Afghanistan. "All the soldiers were talking about this."

Original post from Oct. 3: Break out the tweezers, Barack and Mitt. 

The candidate with the best-groomed eyebrows has won seven of the past eight elections, GroomingLounge.com found.

It's called The Eyebrow Index, and this year the blog's editors say President Obama has the edge. 

GOP candidate Mitt Romney has "eyebrows of mass destruction," their editors wrote. "Mr. Romney needs to do some tidying of those caterpillars to grab an edge."

The editors take into account several criteria, including flyaway hairs, semblance of a unibrow, shape, girth and hair colors. They say their only error was predicting that 2000 Democratic candidate Al Gore would beat President George W. Bush.

That's not to say Obama has an ideal look. "His re-election campaign shouldn't look so grey," GroomingLounge.com wrote. "While coloring his entire head would be a bit too noticeable and drastic, we recommend some strategic ‘grey blending’ to re-emphasize the president’s ability to handle pressure."

Which of TODAY's male anchors has the best chance at becoming president (according to their brows)?
