Tango ranks the potential First Couples' relationships.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts... but in a relationship, it's the parts that make a couple tick. That's why we compared the campaigning couples across different criteria on a scale of one to five. Here's a sneak peek at which union is best suited to a White House Stay.

The Criteria:
