Twenty Greatest

John Hawkins is making lists again, this time of “The Greatest Figures Of The 20th Century”. Unlike the last list, this one is not limited to Americans. Once again, there will be a Liberal list and a Conservative list. I didn’t have time to put much thought into this, but off the top of my head, this seems like a set of pretty impressive people:

Winston Churchill Franklin D. Roosevelt
Martin Luther King Dwight D. Eisenhower
Nelson Mandela Desmond Tutu
Mohandas Gandhi John F. Kennedy
Susan Anthony Albert Einstein
Niels Bohr George S. Patton
Lech Walesa George C. Marshall
Woodrow Wilson Ken Arrow
James Watson Francis Crick
Marie Curie Simon Wiesenthal

I’ll post a link to the lists when the votes are tabulated.


UPDATE: See modification described here.
