Sittin' here watchin' the debate, and a question popped into my head that I think would be fun to discuss.  Who's the greatest Democrat, and the greatest Republican, in U.S. history?

Well I would say John F. Kennedy or Bill Clinton for the Democrats...

I dont have any real favorite Republicans though... maybe Arnold Scwartzenegger

Democrats: FDR

Republicans: Lincoln

Independents: George Washington

Without a doubt.

Well, here aremy choices:

Democrat: Jefferson.  The Democratic party can be traced back to him.  While maybe not as true a Democrat as some moderns, he was nonetheless a liberal, and the greatest man the Democratic Party's lineage has produced... IMO.

Republican: Thaddeus Stevens
