Regardless of your political affiliation, you have to admit, Obama is a fantastic example of a dad. He is dedicated, loving, and attentive (I mean, the guy is President, and yet he has had a perfect attendance record at his daughters’ parent-teacher conferences).

And, of course, here’s some bonus First Dog photos:
