Who’s the most admired biz leader?

Who thinks Big Bill is the world’s most admired CEO – aside from Bill himself?

Apparently a lot of people. Research firm Burson-Marsteller polled 600 “global business influentials” in 65 countries and found Gates came out on top as the most admired business leader.

One would think he’s especially enjoying the honor given that Steve Jobs landed at #2. Two other IT notables in the Top 15 – Michael Dell (#4) and John Chambers (#15). Dell beat out Chambers?

Also, the Wall Street Journal dishes some dirt on Gates this week, noting he likes grilled cheese sandwiches and drinks a lot of Diet Orange Crush. Woo!
