    Me.  For at least two  reasons:

    1.  If it works, don't fix it.  I'm not saying my life is "perfect", but at least it's mostly functional.

    2.  Who knows what the other person's deeper karma may be?  Better the Devil I know than the Devil I don't.

    I would like to have been John of the cross:
    If you have ever read his the Dark Night of the Soul, you will understand why.
    It is not light reading but rewarding. :-)
    His life ended in a less than desirable circumstances, but we all go sometime.

    St. John of the Cross is considered one of the foremost poets in the Spanish language. Although his complete poems add up to fewer than 2500 verses, two of them—the Spiritual Canticle and Dark Night of the Soul are widely considered to be among the best poems ever written in Spanish, both for their formal stylistic point of view and their rich symbolism and imagery.

    The Spiritual Canticle is an eclogue in which the bride (representing the soul) searches for the bridegroom (representing Jesus Christ), and is anxious at having lost him; both are filled with joy upon reuniting. It can be seen as a free-form Spanish version of the Song of Songs at a time when translations of the Bible into the vernacular were forbidden.

    Dark Night of the Soul (from which the spiritual term takes its name) narrates the journey of the soul from her bodily home to her union with God. It happens during the night, which represents the hardships and difficulties she meets in detachment from the world and reaching the light of the union with the Creator. There are several steps in this night, which are related in successive stanzas. The main idea of the poem can be seen as the painful experience that people endure as they seek to grow in spiritual maturity and union with God. A year after writing this poem, in 1586 he wrote a commentary on Dark Night of the Soul with the same title. This commentary explains the meaning of the poem verse by verse.

    St. John also wrote four treatises on mystical theology, two treatises concerning the two poems above, which set out to explain the true meaning of the poems verse by verse and even word by word.

    My answer is not as deep as Frank Marshall's but I haven't given it much thought since High School: Besides Hollywood actors back then (Mel Gibson was my hero), it would first have to be Superman because of not only what he could do (fly!) but also the love he gave to everyone. I know that's weird, but he was everyone's friend. I was forever trying to get that stupid curl on my forehead like in the movies.

    Then there was Santa Claus. Yes, Santa Claus. It's the love thing again. If only he was real :-)

    More seriously, the one person I wanted to be was Moses or to be like Moses. I saw him as a hero because he followed God. Of course he defied God enough times too, but still, his whole life changed 180 degrees when he followed his Jewish spiritual roots and then ended up leading the Jews out of Egypt. Moses was so special to God, that God buried him personally when Moses died.

    In truth I don't think I would be anyone but me. With out the struggles I have faced in life there are many things I wouldn't have learned. Though I often do not feel strong, those moments I often feel the weakest but I still survive are the moments that make me realize how strong I really am. If that makes any sense at all lol.

    I would be the best person that I could possibly be within the life I'm given. Life is life, I can't choose it but I can be as confident as I can be and live it responsibly regardless of what happens.
