    Madison for many more reasons than can be listed in just one post.

    Jefferson. I agree with about 96.5% of his writings.

    Sherman

    Because not very many actually lived by the value and beliefs that were bestowed as US 'mainstays' - he was the only one who didn't make a total ass out of himself or live the life of a pathetic hypocrite. . . and everyone respected him.

    Jefferson, as I identify with him more strongly on ideological conepts and in personal interests. He was seemingly able to span beyond classes, and be comfortable wherever he was, and with whomever he spent his time and energy.

    Don't have one exactly. I'd be showing my true colors if I in any way argue for a lesser-known signer of the Declaration of Independence and his son (future Treasure secretary for Washington and Adams), as it is my family, so ill go with Adams, portions of Hamilton (the part about taking his army and subduing the opposition was too much for my taste) and many of the other Federalists.

    Ben Franklin had 22 kids--not only did he invent the lightening rod, he had one too

    The others took themselves too seriously. Benny just liked to have a good time and spin a good tale.
