There she is ...

Newly crowned Miss America Nicole Johnson diabetes, but that doesn't mean she will continue her predecessor's progressive focus on another life-threatening condition, AIDS. Johnson, a born-again Christian and graduate of Pat Robertson's Regent University, is described by one friend as "not a centrist, but not an extremist." The same friend told the conservative magazine The Weekly Standard that "there were things that Kate Shindle [Miss America 1998] was pushing that Nicole would not condone."

Johnson, who wore her insulin regulator on her hip during all pageant events except the swimsuit competition, has been a tireless spokeswoman for diabetes awareness. But the former intern at the Christian Broadcasting Network hasn't limited her public comments to the disease. She has already suggested that President Clinton should resign because of the Monica Lewinsky affair.
