An Admirable Figure
And on the men's side? It's President Bush, despite his low approval ratings.
Overall, 18 percent call the New York senator the woman they admire most, putting her a scant two percentage points above talk-show host and Barack Obama-backer Oprah Winfrey. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and "mom" tie for third at 5 percent.
Clinton's standing in the poll has bounced back from a low of 7 percent in 2002 to be about what it was in December 2000, when she was winding down her tenure as first lady.
President Bush's trend-line has gone the other way.
Three months after September 11th, 39 percent of all Americans called the president the most admired living man, as did 29 percent in December 2003, nine months after the start of the Iraq war. Now, 10 percent put Bush atop the list, 8 percent said Bill Clinton is best and 6 percent said former vice president. Clinton's rival Obama comes in fourth on the list of men at 5 percent.
