Scott G. Winterton, Deseret News
The following results are based on a Dec. 15-18 USA Today/Gallup poll. In 1946, Gallup first asked Americans to name, without prompting, the person they most admire living in any part of the world. Since 1948, Gallup has asked Americans to name separately the Most Admired Man and Most Admired Woman, and has done so each year except in 1967 (when only Most Admired Man was asked) and 1976. » USA Today/Gallup poll: Most Admired women of 2011 » Read: President Thomas S.

I am so proud of our prophet. He is really worthy to be followed and emulated. Thanks for being an example in my life. I shall always heed to your teachings.

well 9 out of 10 isn't bad. Barack Obama # 1? HA!!! I don't think so. Ask the millions of poor souls standing in Obama's unemployment lines how much they admire him. Ask the 68% of Americans who say Obama has us on the WRONG track how much they admire him.

Bill Clinton - "he instigated several U.S. military missions to capture and kill Osama Bin Laden"

Of all of the reasons to mention for why someone would look up to him, this is one of the best reasons?? When it took almost another decade to actually kill Osama?

People look up to Clinton because he is a smooth talker and somehow talked his way out of getting kicked out of the oval office for the things done "under the table" both figuratively and literally. He should have been impeached for his acts with Monica, not inhaling and his purgery during the trail.

That is one crazy list.


The more you know of Thomas S. Monson, the better you like him.
