    Default Placement of a preposition

    Which sentence flows best?

    "She has won over the entire family".

    "She has won the entire family over".

    (With regard to a new bride, nanny, etc. who has won everybody's hearts).

    Both are acceptable. The female won them over to her side. (Doesn't she always, though?)
