First Lady Michelle Obama definitely knows how to make an appearance, and it’s that quality in particular that causes many to love her, while others loathe her.

From the numerous television, talk show, and public appearances, it is usually all eyes on the FLOTUS when she enters the scene—most recently shutting down the Aspen Airport while vacationing with her daughters.

Although many accuse her of ‘not acting like a First Lady,’ according to a new study on first ladies conducted by Siena College and C-SPAN, Michelle Obama raked fifth and edged out Hillary Clinton who ranked sixth.

During the study historians, authors and political scientists were asked to rate each first lady from one to five in 10 categories that include “being her own woman,” “leadership,” “accomplishments” and “value to the president.”

First lady Eleanor Roosevelt has topped the list every single time.

Whether people are criticizing her wardrobe, toned physique, or numerous television appearances, the First Lady isn’t slowing down one bit.

Her next stop is the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday February 20.
