Most Admired

In a new USA TODAY/Gallup poll, Americans have chosen President-Elect Barack Obama as the man they most admire and Secretary of State-designate Hillary Clinton as the woman they most admire in the world.

Obama got 32% of the vote, with George Bush coming in second at a distant 5%.
It's the first time a president-elect has topped the annual survey in more than a half-century.

...Dwight Eisenhower scored first [in 1952], the only other time a president-elect has led the list since Gallup began asking the question in 1948.
Clinton won with 20% of the vote; she's held the top spot for 13 of the past 16 years. Amazing.
