Eighty-five percent of the 1,046 people polled said Clinton had "done something foolish" in the past year. The former president had a 16-point lead over his nearest rival, actor Robert Downey Jr. (69 percent), who was arrested on drug charges while on probation for a previous drug offense.
Others on the list, compiled by a New York-based public relations consultant, included the Rev. Jesse Jackson, whose admission that he fathered a staffer's child out of wedlock while counseling Clinton at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal garnered 67 percent; Sean "Puffy" Combs (64 percent); Homer Simpson (56 percent); and President Bush (48 percent).
Secretary of State Colin Powell (13 percent) ranked least foolish.
