Americans kind of put her right up there with Churchill as an example of British toughness.
Canadians in my experience are largely the same way, the number of people over here who idolize her is astonishing. I like her for her fierceness, nothing else. She knew what she wanted, she went for it, and she got it. Gotta respect that, but that's where it ends for me.
