Hillary Edges Out Palin as Most Admired Woman

Wednesday, 30 Dec 2009 12:09 PM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton barely edged out former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the most admired woman in America, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.

When Gallup asked 1,025 adults nationwide to name the woman they admire most, 16 percent picked Clinton. Palin was the only other woman to be mentioned by at least 10 percent, being selected by 15 percent of those surveyed, Politico reported.

In third place was show host Oprah Winfrey came in third with 8 percent, edging out first lady Michelle Obama who got 7 percent.

Rounding out the top 10 were former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Queen Elizabeth II, who both received 2 percent, along with former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, poet Maya Angelou, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Elin Nordegren Woods, wife of golfer Tiger Woods — all of whom received 1 percent.

Clinton has been named most admired woman by the poll 14 times, going back to her time as first lady. Only then-first lady Laura Bush in 2001 and Mother Teresa in 1995 and 1996 have been able to knock Clinton from her perch, though Palin came close.
