Naturally she is referring to Hitler, the dictator of Germany, and his cousin Hitler, who joined the US navy in WW2.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

There are far too many great people in history, though I like Leonardo da Vinci, Voltaire, Socrates, Anne Boleyn (lol) and Queen Elizabeth I to name a few.

Post AD 600:

1. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
-He was a successful religious preacher, leader, etc. What he preached is followed by most people today.

2. Aisha (R.A.) (spot can be shared by her father and Uthman)
-Without her, it would be hard to teach people about Islam. She was a great scholar.

3. Josip Broz Tito
-A great leader of several religious and ethnic groups, who managed to successfully combat fascism, and managed to let different kinds of people live in peace and harmony under once one of the most powerful nations in the world.

4 / 5. Nothing particular, but Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr., etc. are examples.

And somewhere is one interesting guy (not exactly one of my favorite):

"Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?"

"As yesterday's positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured." -George W. Bush

i dont understand why people idolize Thomas Jefferson so much. Yes he was very intelligent, but he was the definition of a hypocrite.
I'm back.

I prefer the former rather than the latter. Although Franklin is probably my second favorite founding father.

On a side note, my friend wrote that Ben Franklin invented the light bulb in his SAT Essay.
