When you think of the best looking men on the campaign trail, Bernie Sanders probably isn't the first presidential candidate who comes to mind.

Most of us know Sanders as the wrinkled, white-haired Democrat from Vermont who looks uncannily similar to Doc Brown from "Back to the Future."

Yep, at the ripe age of 74, Sanders has certainly surpassed the eye candy expiration date.

But apparently, this democratic dude actually used to be pretty f*cking hot back in the day.

No really, I'm serious. Young Sanders was simply sizzlin'.

If you turn the clocks wayyyyyy back to when Sanders was just starting out on the path to political success, it appears this charismatic fella was pretty easy on the eyes.

In fact, we recently came across some photos of young Sanders that will really have you feelin' the Bern.

You may know Bernie Sanders as the old presidential candidate with the crazy hair...
