John Hawkins emailed more than a 150 right-of-center bloggers and asked them to send him a list of who they considered to be "History's Most Interesting Dinner Companions".
My selections were:
Alexander the Great
King Richard (the Lionheart)
the prophet Mohammed
My choices were based on how interesting they might be to dine with and drink with. I think Benjamin Franklin might be life of the party there.
Yes, I left out a lot of other great historical figures. But this is what I came up with on a Sunday morning sans coffee.
