Nothing against first sons, but first daughters are not to be messed with. You don't toss criticism — especially sexist criticism — at the president's daughters. Remember when former GOP staffer Elizabeth Lautner thought Malia and Sasha Obama dressed too provocatively at this November's turkey pardoning ceremony? To recap, she told the Obama girls, "Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar." Needless to say, Lautner picked the wrong target. She faced swift backlash and resigned almost immediately.

The first daughters are where you want to be: They have status, smarts, and personal One Direction concerts. They're basically invincible, and they're definitely in charge.

Some of the daughters of America's great presidents have gone out to make names for themselves and became celebrities in their own right. Number 7, Chelsea Clinton, comes to mind. Others have laid low, keeping to themselves and staying out of the limelight.

From Caroline Kennedy to Sasha Obama, here are some of the coolest first daughters in recent history. Some of them are political activists, some of them are journalists, some of them are high school students, and some of them are what I like to call Double Whammys — ladies who were born to one president and then married another president's grandchild (looking at you, Julie Nixon Eisenhower).
