    Dick Morin says:

    I'd be Abraham Lincoln and I would not go to Ford's Theater on April 14, 1865. That way, I'd be able to oversee the reconciliation with the South as I had planned, with malice toward none

    I'd be Truman, but instead of fireing mac Arthur, I'd give him all he needed to do the job in Korea.

    I would be Pontius Pilate, Roman Govenor of Judea. I would not have crucified that Jesus (king of the Jews?), but rather, would have sold him off in to slavery to some merchant from India. The world would be much different don't you think? (Not saying it would be any better, just different.)

      Ben…do you really think the binds of slavery could have held the son of God? A man who performed miracles would have just sat back and said OK I'll be a good little slave stop spreading the Kingdom of God on earth.

    Elijah says:

    I would be Stonewall Jackson and would not be where he was on that fateful day during the Battle of Chanslorsville. Perhaps the War would have turned out differently had he not been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Charles Atlas…You would have to see my body to understand why.
    My brother took Charles Atlas courses starting in the late 30's and he died at 82 with the body of a Greek God. Mine is more like a fat Greek, but I am loveable, so says my wife.

    Husband E. Kimmel and i would have ordered the fleet out of the harbor on the 6th of december '41 to defensive positions for special maneuvers to commence at o700 hours on the 7th of december.

      Ted…don't you think the visual impact of what happened at PH did more to unite Americans than it would have had there been just a small inconsequential strike? Remember Americans wanted to stay out of the war—American people I should say.

    Monica Lewinsky- I would have refused Bill and my shadow wouldn't have loomed so large over the 2000 election. Gore most likely would have won. (Well… he did win in reality, but it wouldnt have been so close.)
