The coolest presidential couple keeps getting cooler and cooler. When Entertainment Tonight asked Michelle Obama what it is like to be married to a sex symbol, the first lady didn't shy away. She said, "He's got a little swag, you know? That's OK."

"I mean, I'm proud of him. He's a stylish, I think, man who is healthy and he's smart and he's passionate and he's inspiring. And who wouldn't fall in love with that, you know? It's OK," she said.
