Barbara Walters isn't the only person who finds the Obamas fascinating.

In fact, Michelle may have topped The View doyenne's annual special, but Oprah Winfrey gets a whole hour with the White House's golden couple.

Chatter gets really deep during this holiday-themed sit-down, too.

"Is there a greater pressure to give a good gift when you're the president, or can you get away with a lesser gift if you're the president?" Oprah asks in a clip of the special airing Sunday at 10 p.m. on ABC.

Like we said, this is hard-hitting stuff.

"Sorry, busy," the first lady jokes. "What are you going to get me? You should feel pressure."

"I've been givin' some good gifts. You get some nice stuff," the commander in chief declares. "Here's the general rule—I give nicer stuff than I get."

"No way," Michelle insists.

"Oh, c'mon. Please," the president groans, later pointing out a diamond brooch which was a previous gift.

Seriously, are we interviewing the final duo on The Bachelor or our nation's leader?

That said, we fully admit Michelle's story about her dollhouse—and the way her husband looks at her as she tells it—is indeed sweet.


We wonder what other gifts make up some of the ensembles in the first lady's Fashion Spotlight.
