U.S. most admired country globally



The upside of brains and charisma…

The United States is the most admired country globally thanks largely to the star power of President Barack Obama and his administration, according to a new poll.

It climbed from seventh place last year, ahead of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan which completed the top five nations in the Nation Brand Index (NBI).

“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 for 2009,” said Simon Anholt, the founder of NBI, which measured the global image of 50 countries each year.

This is awesome. I am so sick of the hearing about people being happy that Chicago didn't get the Olympics and reading such negative stories about our President. Very refreshing news.

Jolynn~ Only thing is, as I pointed out to hubby, do you think the media, especially faux news, will report this!?!

I'd say, not a snow ball's chance in hell!

Karen - The right wingers don't feel they are doing a good job unless the world is mad at them.
