In a USA Today/Gallup Poll, President Obama top the list of admired men and Hillary Clinton for admired women. Some of the others may surprise you.
Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, and Condoleezza Rice round out the top five Most Admired women, while the top five Most Admired men also include George W Bush, Bill Clinton, Billy Graham, and Warren Buffett, it said.Newt the Hut, Moose Mess and Billy Graham? For real? Interesting and sad to say the least.
Gallup said of the top 10 Most Admired men, four are government leaders (Obama, Clinton, Bush, and Newt Gingrich), three are business leaders (Buffett, Donald Trump, and Bill Gates), and three are religious leaders (Graham, Pope Benedict, and Thomas Monson, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).
Of the top 10 Most Admired women, eight are from government roles and two are from television (Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres).
