NEWSMAKERS / Most admired . . .
They're the odd couple again: George Bush and Hillary Clinton, the most admired man and woman in America. Though they stand on opposite sides of a political divide, the Republican president and the Democratic senator from New York are sharing the honor for a sixth straight year, according to a USA Today-Gallup poll. Results are based on the Dec. 14-16 USA Today/Gallup poll, which asked Americans, without prompting, to say what man and woman ``living today in any part of the world, do [they] admire most?'' Percentages are of number of respondents naming that person.
