President-elect Barack Obama has replaced US President George W. Bush as the most admired man in America, according to a poll published Friday in the USA Today newspaper.
One-third of the 1,008 respondents surveyed named Obama as their first or second choice, with Bush falling to a distant second after seven years as the country's most-admired man.
Thirty-two percent of respondents chose Obama against five percent for Bush. It was the first time a president-elect topped the poll since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952.
The poll was conducted over telephone between December 12 and 14.
Bush had to come tumbling down, let's face it, history will write his epitaph and it will be "one of the worst presidents ever", guranteed.
