Gallup: Obama, Hillary share "Most Admired" Billing

Gallup released it's annual "Most Admired" List for the year.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/113572/Obama- Hillary-Clinton-Share-Most-Admired-Billi ng.aspx

No surprise here:

Obama was #1 at 32% the Most Admired Man

Hillary was #2 at 20% and the Most Admired Woman

Strange to see that George W was #2 in the Man column along with Sarah Palin.

This is Hillary's 7th consecutive year as the Most Admired Woman and the 13th Year she has been in the Top Ten.

Obama is the first President-elect since Eisenhower to make the Most Admired Man list.

Re: Gallup: Obama, Hillary share

it's the dream team, again?  Yep, it's weird that W and Sarah are admired by anyone, but then I admire Barack and Hillary.

Re: Gallup: Obama, Hillary share "Most

I remember seeing a poll in 2002 that where W and Clinton both tied for being the best President ever at 43% each.  They also tied at first when respondants were asked to name the worst president ever.

If anything, the poll shows the nation is less partisan than it was 6 years ago.  But only a little bit.

Re: I remember that poll

besides Hillary who has been in the senate and armed services committee member w/ a record and standing , rest are popularity ( among their base) votes. all the same its not a 'scientific' poll.

Re: I remember that poll

Do you get PUMA points for posting this garbage?  And if you do, can you redeem them for anything useful?  Our Girl is only on the list for being married to an ex-president -- if not, why aren't other members who have done more and spent more time on the list?

Re: I remember that poll

John McCain IS #3 on the poll, the others? Not known as well....while Hillary may have been in the poll in the past based on being the first lady, I would guess that THIS year is different based on her historic run as the first woman president.

Well, if Hillary's popularity was only on the "list for being married to an ex-president". You can go along and make other baseless arguments like: Obama won only due to the financial crisis. C'mon dude or gal: Hillary's popularity goes well ahead of Bill Clinton (who also made the list being tied with the POPE and someone else).

If her making the list were due to Bill Clinton's coattails, then, she will would be tied or lower than Bill's rating or Bill's would be higher or tied with hers.

Now don't tell me otherwise, it's hard to need someone else coattails if your ratings are higher (if you are saying that, then, even Barack Obama is benefiting from Bill Clinton's, John F. Kennedy's, and Martin Luther King's goodwill.

Give me a break! They are popular becaus of what they did!

lulz

Most people are insanely ignorant, so the question actually means "what is the name of a famous woman who is not an actress?"  And the answer, not surprisingly, is the one who spent the last 8 years running for President, and the 8 before that being a President's wife.

Re: lulz

Username: Every successful politician (or prominent people in general) are spending their lives running towards something. It is truly an idea that is connected with Obama--some said that he had planned on running for president at the earliest 2012 (which range from 8 or so years itself) and before that to present himself as a viable vice-presiential choice.

I know some people revile Hillary for not going into the gentle night like most first ladies, but Michelle Obama would have had a tougher time breaking the mode of traditional first ladies had it not been a Hillary--and there would be an even more divisive Hillary, had it not been an Eleanor Roosevelt.

I believe some people need to get past their hate for Hillary. I mean, just only today, many are pushing for Caroline Kennedy to be senator when her experience did not even match Hillary Clinton's record (pre-first lady years). Hillary's record is a successful one even if she was a man. I believe this is part of the ingrained hatred toward her.

I mean how dare Robert Kennedy for running for president after he served in his brother's administration! (Of course, for those who may read otherwise, I'm being snarky with the previous sentence.)

People, please relax and take a chill pill...

Re: I remember that poll

I knew I would envoke such a reaction. a reaction I'm much too pleased with because you never took a deep breath from your asskissing to realize that :

base= what else could have voted bush , sarah and mccain in.  Can you imagaine anyone else other thah his base voting for bush ?

similarly , it was the base ( ours happens to be larger now) that voted Obama. He has not even taken office , so in all fairness the day he can judged can only come after at lest a couple of years in office.  So far on transition he gets A +, but so did bush when he elected bush and rummy in 2000 ( look how they turned out).

Hillary on the other hand has been in the senate for a long time and she is voted i not  simply justbecause she was an ex first lady but because she has garned the respect of her senate collegues for her work ( hard work).

So my tigger happy , obam lovefestpalooza pal(s)my orginal statement was on the money. I also said itw as not a scientific poll.

Sadly, no.  The PUMA dollar has devalued significantly since it's zenith in mid-August 2008 (when they could afford 37 Whopper Jr. meals from the Burger King next to their HQ at the Airport Plaza).

Nowadays, PUMAs can't buy a loaf of bread in Zimbabwe.

If you mention the sky is blue

Mumbai will ask you "Why do you hate the Clintons" in response.

It's a conditioned reflex at this point....

Well duh

mentioning blue is clearly an attempt to bring up a certain infamous GAP dress and a clear slap at the Clintons.  When will you Obots STOP re-fighting the primary?!

Re: Gallup: Obama, Hillary share &quot;Most Admire

Again, the smart guy is incorporating many of Clinton's ideas and policies. I guess that makes Clinton a smart guy as well.
