    people who are currently active in the realm of politics...

    elected officials, unelected candidates, pundits, commentators, philosophers, etc...

    in the US or elsewhere...

    Charles Krauthammer. Compared with other commentators, he is the teacher and they are the students.

    No, I cannot say that there is unless we get down to small town mayor. I used to work for one and he was a decent man despite the fact that he is a hardcore Republican.

    hadn't ever heard of him before now...

    just now did a search... found this great quote from him: "I became a conservative by being around liberals and I became a libertarian by being around conservatives. You realize that there’s something distinctly in common between the two groups, the left and the right; the worst part of each of them is the moralizing."

    Bill O' Reilly for commentator because he is one of the few who will actually have on people who disagree with him and Marco Rubio on the politician side has impressed me.

    Jimmy Carter. Who's done more after his presidency than him?

    Ron Paul. Because he showed that you can be a politician that doesn't need to sell their soul and every principle that you had just to make a name for yourself.

    Ron Paul for taking the logical and correct position even when idiots, hack, liars and scum used these positions against him under the banner of politically correct.

    Ron Paul because he actually predicted this mess we are in and gave the very reasons we would be in the mess while near all other politicians ignored or ridiculed him.

    Obama for not caring how wrong he has been proven to be or how much damage his policies are doing.

    Then Mitt Romney for selling his voice to the highest bidder.

    Oh man... I don't know...

    John Stewart? Glenn Beck? Stephen Colbert and Bill O'Reilly?

    I like anyone I can get a laugh from. Usually those 4 guys.
