Most Admired Man in America

From USA Today:

Poll: Obama is man Americans admire most
By Susan Page, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — A month before his inauguration, Americans choose Barack Obama as the man they admire most in the world, according to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll. It's the first time a president-elect has topped the annual survey in more than a half-century.

President Bush falls to a distant second after seven years as the most-admired man.
[...]
Interesting that it took Obama's ascension to most-admired man before the MSM would mention that Bush happened to be the most-admired man for the past seven years.

I don't seem to recall any blaring headlines over the past seven years about Bush being the most admired man.

Here's the headline from 2007:
Hillary Edges Out Oprah as Most Admired Woman in ‘07
They get to the Most Admired Man going to Bush in the 10th paragraph.

Oh, and by the way.... what % do you think Clinton got in the Most Admired man poll in 2000? 6%, tied with Pope John Paul II and 1 point better than the then-Governor of Texas, George W. Bush.

Bush received 5% this year.

They should have asked what it is they admire after the intitial question. He's still just a few speeches as far as I am concerned.
