    I can see most of those people,but Muhammad Ali and Oprah Winfrey?!!! A great American IMO accomplishes things that help his fellow Americans. I'm trying to figure out what Oprah has done other than make millions for herself doing a t.v. show.

    I went for GW, George Washington. I liked Jefferson, but not as much as Washington. Now if Hamilton had been there....

    Had to go with Jefferson.

    Kathianne, I can't believe you would have taken Hamilton over GW and the rest... :poop: :D

    Jeff if not for Hamilton and the Federalist papers, I'm not so sure there would be an America today. IN a real way, he was the original Republican, saving the economy of the US in it's 9 month of gestation.

    Oh who cares about him...what about "you ain't nothin but a hound dog" by Elvis?
    Geeezzzz....That was damn important stuff, that was!

    *J/K*

    But it reflects my thinking on this whole thing..It may be or may not be the Discoverys' channel attempt to compete with the American Idiol. Just a thought...Then again, it shows MORONS watch cable tv too, and VOTE!..Oprah and Elvis...Pleassssseee.
