They say politics changes you, but you wouldn't know that by looking at U.S. Representative Paul Ryan.

Mitt Romney's choice for vice president looks very much the same as he did when he attended Craig High School in Janesville, Wisconsin. According to Classmates.com, Ryan graduated in 1988 and was the president of his class.

Not a bad start, huh? However, Ryan's classmates didn't just elect him president: they also voted him "biggest brown-noser," according to the Daily Beast.

Buzzfeed has more photos of Paul Ryan in high school, and also posted a gallery of other U.S. politicians during their teen years.
