Im going to throw my vote behind Mr. Zinn. Arguably one of the most influencial historians of our time.
Read "A Peoples History Of The United States". Excellent history lesson

John F Kennedy....The United States and indeed the world changed, and not for the better, with his assasination. A lot of people, especially those outside of the United States do not realize, and many who were alive during the 50's, 60's, and early 70's do not seem to remember, the rabid anti-Catholic sentiment that was so pervasive throuout the United States. Contemporary with that was the infiltration and subversion of the Roman Catholic Church with Vatican II. In the summer of 1960 there were approximately 25 high ranking prelates [Archbishops and Cardinals] who died under strange or peculiar circumstances. On the heels of all this Anti-Catholic sentiment Pope John XXIII is seminally influenced by "Father Malone" a twenty 26 year old priest who was born and raised a Jew until the age of 23. Interestingly, Pope John XXIII is known as the "Masonic Pope". The week preceding the assasination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 was the most anti-Catholic that I have ever lived through. To my knowledge, the deaths of the above mentioned members of the Catholic Church were never officially acknowledged. A Roman Catholic myself, I've always wondered why the Catholic Church did not try to get to the bottom of the Kennedy Assasination. Michael Colllins Piper finally has.

James Madison, I was surprised after reading further on this man how much he effects everyday life in America.

No offense to Grandma Bailey, but Anna Nicole Smith has done more in service to senior citizens and in drawing the attention of the public at large to the need for good family dynamics and wholesome values.

I believe that the wise person who nominated Ms Smith as one of so few female nominees in this Poll also pointed out the extent to which her public profile has radically exceeded the sum of her talents.

Anna Nicole Smith is a true inspiration for talentless individuals everywhere.

I'm sticking with Schippers for the reasons stated in the nominating thread. Dave roolz!

I nominated him and will vote for him also. Howard Zinn.

I think we need to try to interest more in the poll or we are going to wind up with about one point per nominee. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Well, still sticking with the savoir of of !BILLIONS!

Go Norman Borlaug!

Ronald Reagan has my vote.

Abraham Lincoln. He ensured, at a terrible cost it is true, that the United States would become a great power, at a time when few seemed to care about greatness.

Greatness does not imply a requirement for pointless reverence. Nor a lack of sin in the man. The question is "great."

At this rate, we're going to have to close the polls early just so I can keep up with the tally. Whew! Can you say writer's cramp?

Before you cast your vote, take a look at the discussions behind each nomination:'

I'm really tempted to vote Anna Nicole Smith, because she's so outrageous....

But in the final analysis, I think Abraham Lincoln had a bit more impact on American history, so my vote will go to him.

I vote for JFK, because i think he was one of are best presidents.

I also think JFK would of been a better president, if the our goverment

didn't kill him in the 60s.

Okay! It looks like we have a real horse race here. Take it easy folks; I'm not that good at math.

I think Honest Abe is ahead.

I know he's got 3 whole votes.

Grady, I think you should hold this poll open for TWO weeks. More people need to see it.

We'll leave the voting open for two weeks to give the poll maximum exposure.

If Anna Nicole Smith wins or ties, I would like to arrange an ATS interview of her as a great living American.
