Think about what your list would be...

Gallup's List of Widely Admired People, a poll of United States citizens to volunteer the names of the individuals whom they most admire. In December 1999, they concatenated this information with their final survey for the 20th century, producing a list of 18 people from the 20th century who are "most admired":

  1. Mother Teresa
  2. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  3. John F. Kennedy
  4. Albert Einstein
  5. Helen Keller
  6. Franklin D. Roosevelt
  7. Billy Graham
  8. Pope John Paul II
  9. Eleanor Roosevelt
  10. Winston Churchill
  11. Dwight D. Eisenhower
  12. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
  13. Mohandas Gandhi
  14. Nelson Mandela
  15. Ronald Reagan
  16. Henry Ford
  17. Bill Clinton
  18. Margaret Thatcher
Its an interesting mix....
