Via JMG, here are the results from the periodical Harris Poll that asks Americans who they admire most. It's a pretty diverse group - seven people of color of which five are black, five women, three LGBTQ people, four from alternative families, and one non-human entity. Also good to see some leftist extremists (by today's American standards) as well as an assortment of liberals.
Also interesting is how time-sensitive some of these picks are. The list would be completely different if conducted one year from now.
Who would you have named as your most admired person?
