    I doubt anyone could make a rational argument as to how this guy is not in the top 3, if not THE most influential individual of the past 100 years.
    I tend to agree. Similar to Time's "Man of the Year" award (of which, AH was a recipient), I don't necessarily equate "influential" with having to mean positive.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    This could be what you meant, though, and I just misread it.

    are you refering to the century that Joe Biden is in?
