PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Americans named President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the most admired man and most admired woman living today, Gallup said Wednesday.

Clinton has been the most admired woman for the last 10 years and Obama has been the most admired man for four years straight, results of the Gallup-USA Today survey indicated.

After Clinton, daytime television diva Oprah Winfrey, first lady Michelle Obama, 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice completed the top five most admired women.

Rounding out the five most admired men were former U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, evangelist Billy Graham and billionaire investor Warren Buffett, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said.

Hillary Clinton has led the list of most admired women a total of 16 times since 1993, finishing second in 1995 and 1996 to humanitarian Mother Teresa and in 2001 to former first lady Laura Bush.

Results are based on nationwide telephone interviews with 1,019 adults conducted Dec. 15-18. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.
