Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton has been named Most Admired Woman for the 15th time (9th consecutive) since she was first named in 1993 and has lost her #1 ranking only 3 times: First Lady Laura Bush (2001), Mother Teresa (1995,1996).
The woman who should be president has proven herself over 3 decades – ranking #1 or #2 throughout her 18 years as first lady, US senator and secy of state. The acting president who has been in politics for 13 years – nationally for 6 – became #1 only after he was elected.
GALLUP: As for this first lady – Mrs Obama’s single-digits (3,7,5) are “on the low side for other first ladies since Carter at this point in their husband’s first term”.
