Forbes' eclectic list of formidable duos who span the worlds of entertainment, politics, media and even royalty has POTUS and FLOTUS at #1.

It's Michelle who carries this particular ticket, too.

"With 67 percent of Americans viewing first lady Michelle Obama favorably, she's more popular than her husband," Forbes states in its assessment.

Other celebrity couples who ranked highly:

  • Jay-Z and Beyonce
  • Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen
  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
  • Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
  • Bill and Melinda Gates
  • Hillary and Bill Clinton
  • Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip

No Kate Middleton and Prince William yet ... he's only third in line for the throne, after all. Maybe in 2014, once the baby is born, they'll be a bigger deal!
