Question Your hero's or mentors dead or alive ?

We all have someone dead or alive that inspires or amuses us to such degree, that we class them as a Hero . Who is yours?

Abraham Lincoln was not only a great president, he was a litery genius whose writings are so clear and concise they bear reading by anyone today.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

My grandfather on my fathers side, an english professor at SMU named Marsh Terry, and my better half. As far as political heros I would say FDR and Thomas Jefferson, mainly for not being self serving pricks but remaining patriotic nonetheless.
