    I think I'd have to say my favorite is Ben Franklin. But there are so many that I think are awesome. Been reading alot of Franklin and Washington lately. They were amazing men.

    Franklin is definitely top three. But I like James Madison. A great architect, although less of a statesman, I'm afraid.

    Franklin was probably the smartest of them all.

    Not a nice guy if one looks closely at the way he treated his own family, but without doubt the smartest of the pack.
