US President-elect Barack Obama is the man Americans say they admire most in the world, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll published Friday. Thirty two percent of those questioned said Obama was the man they most admired compared with 5 percent for President George W. Bush who came in second. Defeated Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain came in third with 3 percent. Hillary Rodham Clinton leads the list of most admired women with 20 percent, according to the poll. She has held this spot for 13 of the past 16 years, as first lady, then New York senator and now Obama' choice to be secretary of state. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, unknown in much of the US until she became the Republican party's vice presidential candidate in the November elections, was the second most admired woman with 11 percent. Television talk show host Oprah Winfrey is third with 8 percent.
