Well now its Obama.
No, he was not. Theodore Roosevelt was 42 when he became president in 1901: he was the vice president at that time, but was elevated to president after William McKinley was assassinated. The youngest person ever elected to the presidency was John F. Kennedy, who was inaugurated when he was 43 years old. Barack Obama was in the top 5 of youngest presidents-- he was 47 when he was elected.
Youngest Presidents. Theodore Roosevelt. Kennedy. Clinton. Obama.
Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, and Ulysses Grant were all younger than Obama.
