They Like Us...They Really Like Us!

A recent poll found that the good ol' U.S. of A. tops the list of countries most admired and appreciated world-wide. Last year we were number seven.

"What’s really remarkable is that in all my years studying national reputation, I have never seen any country experience such a dramatic change in its standing as we see for the United States in 2009,” explains Simon Anholt, NBI founder and an independent advisor to over a dozen national governments around the world. "Despite recent economic turmoil, the U.S. actually gained significant ground. The results suggest that the new U.S. administration has been well received abroad and the American electorate’s decision to vote in President Obama has given the United States the status of the world’s most admired country.”

But no, Obama hasn't done anything at all to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. Nope, not a thing.
