Huh, up there with Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and the Dalai Lama. Interesting.

I do wish a number of those questions had a "unsure" answer, as I am just not educated enough to answer them correctly. I also fee ashamed about a few of my answers :/

Always thought I was more right and more libertarian. Guess wisdom DOES come with age.

It's perfect. I wonder why, of 16 leaders, none of them are in the lower right quadrant...
