Americans were asked ... "What man that you have heard about or read about, living today in any part of the world, do you admire most? And who is your second choice?"

Nelson Mandela came in third, Glenn Beck came in fourth, and the Pope came in fifth.

The Gallup Poll released its list of the most admired men and women of 2009 and Glenn Beck is a bit more admired than Pope Benedict XVI, Rev. Billy Graham, but less than Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Nelson Mandela.

According to the annual survey of Americans, Hilary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Oprah Winfrey are the most admired women.

Beck certainly has his detractors. Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank had this to say about the Beck admiration:

"The 45-year-old recovering alcoholic and Mormon convert has become the first true demagogue of the information age. His nightly diet of falsehoods and conspiracies on Fox, and his daily outrages on the radio, have propelled his popularity past even Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. His method is simple: He goes places where others are forbidden by conscience."
All I can say is, wow.

I don't admire a single person on that list. Sad state America is in...
