Aren’t there more people to be admired than the same person 20 years in a row?
That’s what a lot of people are saying after reading the Gallup Poll survey of most admired people, which has named President Obama and Hillary Clinton, the top admired man and woman of 2015.
It’s broken down by most admired women and most admired men. Gallup says Americans usually name the sitting U.S. president as the most admired man. The only men to win the distinction at least four times were all presidents.
The tendency to name the sitting president as most admired man has acted as a cap on the number of total times a man can win the honor at eight, or the number of years elected presidents can serve.
