America’s Heroes

According to this Harris poll, the top 5 people Americans name as their “hero” are:

1. Barack Obama
2. Jesus
3. Martin Luther King
4. Ronald Reagan
5. George W. Bush

I think the strangest part of this story is, according to another account, that “God” ranked 11th. I’m no theologian, but shouldn’t the “God” and “Jesus” votes have been aggregated? Maybe then he (they?) could have beaten out Obama!
