20 GREATEST AMERICANS
John Hawkins of Right Wing News sent out a survey to 90-odd bloggers last Friday asking us to list, in no particular order, up to twenty people we considered to be “the greatest Americans.” The results are up.
Since John asked us to keep the project a secret until he had the list compiled, and I put mine together over the weekend from home, I don’t have my list with me. Still, all of the figures on the consensus list except Lincoln, MLK, FDR, Hamilton, Patton, Grant, Paine, Douglass, and Truman were on mine. If he’d occured to me, Hamilton would have made mine. Lincoln, FDR, Patton, Paine, and Truman occured to me but I omitted them for various reasons.
