For the eleventh year in a row, former President Barack Obama has been voted America’s Most Admired Man in Gallup’s annual poll, and for the first time ever, former First Lady Michelle Obama has taken the top spot, ending Hillary Clinton’s remarkable 17-year run.

It’s no surprise, of course: People LOVE the Obamas. Full stop. Whether it’s starstruck children or elderly ladies, heads of state or people in need, there’s just something so real, so genuine, and just … wonderful about the 44th U.S. president and first lady. Even their love for each other seems perfect.

These two people clearly don’t despise each other at all, unlike their current replacements in the White House.

The Obamas just seem like people you wouldn’t be afraid to let near your children, if you just randomly had the chance to have a former POTUS and FLOTUS watch your kids.

Seriously. Would you let your child near the current president?

And 44 also has a great sense of humor, unlike some presidents we know.

Donald Trump, for the record, came in at #2, with a six-point deficit. Sad!

On the women’s side, current First Lady Melania Trump came in fourth, behind Oprah Winfrey and HRC.
