While Americans look ahead to the next four years pondering what will become of the health system and economy, one magazine has predicted what will become of Barack Obama's face. 

Bloomberg Businessweek had two photos ready for its cover story - one of Obama and the other of his opponent Mitt Romney, both aged by four years.

Running with a photo of an older Obama on the cover, the headline reads "The Next Four Years".

The image will be the cover of the magazine's November 12-18 edition. The story attached to it will report "on the road ahead for President Obama as he faces the fiscal cliff and crucial decisions for the future of the economy, business, and defence," the magazine's website said.  

"The opposition remains considerable, and no matter how successful he is, the hardest job in the world will take its toll."

A 2009 Greenpeace campaign has also predicted an aged Obama, focusing on what he would look like in 2020 and how he would regret his decision not to go to a climate change conference that year.
