One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?
Gallup Poll released its list of the 10 most admired women. First on the list is Hillary Clinton with 17%, next is Sarah Palin 12% and third is Oprah Winfrey with 11%.
1. Hillary Clinton
2. Sarah Palin
3. Oprah Winfrey
4. Michelle Obama
5. Condoleezzza Rice
6. Queen Elizabeth
7. Angelina Jolie
8. Margaret Thatcher
9. (Tie) Aung Sun Suu Kyi
(Tie) Laura Bush
(Tie )Barbara Bush
I get Oprah, and I was surprised to find out she has never topped the list, but the fact that Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin are so close floors me. Hillary Clinton is a strong woman and hard worker, who raised an exceptional daughter. She doesn’t complain or blame. She is a leader in the truest sense of the word.
Sarah Palin is a glorified weather girl who was thrust into the national limelight, was unprepared and ultimately I believe caused John McCain to lose the Presidency. She couldn’t finish her term as governor which was clouded by ethics issues.
As far as I am concerned it is sad that Sarah Palin is even mentioned in the same breath as Hillary Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Aung San Suu Kyi and Condoleezza Rice, let alone is more highly regarded than most of them.
I guess in an era where the next presidential election might be brought to you by Exxon or Chevron, maybe my opinion doesn’t matter anyway.
Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others,
Then you’re absolutely…right!
