Robert Kennedy is/was my hero. He was an AG in the mold of Ashcroft. Wiretaps, Coverups, and illegal deportations of mafia godfathers to guatemala. I give him two thumbs up for this.

And in the mold of Hillary Clinton...a carpetbagger.


But seriously....he and John will always be my favorites. Spent half my college life researching documents at the Kennedy Library. Have a photo copy of a paper signed by both brothera about the Alliance for Progress.

I think that COINTELPRO operations by the FBI really make it clear that under J. Edgar Hoover America was more of a police state than it is today. So much information and power in the hands of one man could be dangerous.

The Kennedy's and Hoover though, there was one web of machiavellian deeds.

I don't know that much about Luns or Drees . I'm going to be more optimistic about current-day politics and say Marijke Vos.

being Canadian and just because .. Lester B. Pearson

Bill Clinton, . and actually think the Kennedy's have some great kids ..

I like alot of what I know of Taoiseach (Jack) Lynch .. tough times during his run and the economic plan was maybe umm not all good but he led pretty well I think under situations many others might have crumbled

Patricia De Lille--.

but top of the list of political figures Nelson Mandela
