WASHINGTON, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- President Bush and Sen. Hillary Clinton top a USA Today-CNN poll, released Tuesday, seeking the people most admired by Americans.

Bush was either the first or second choice of 29 percent of respondents for most admired man, one of the top three scores in the annual poll since Gallup first asked the question in 1948, USA Today said.

Secretary of State Colin Powell and Pope John Paul II tied for second place with 4 percent each.

Clinton, D-N.Y., earned the honor as the most admired woman for the fourth time in five years, the newspaper said. She was named by 16 percent of those asked. Talk show host Oprah Winfrey was second -- the fourth time in five years she's finished second to Clinton -- with 7 percent. First lady Laura Bush, who topped the list in 2001, was third with 6 percent.

The poll was produced by Gallup, which asked 1,004 adults their opinion as to whom they admire. It was conducted Dec. 5-7 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
