If you could only become one of the people listed below, which person would you become and why?
If it were possible for you to go back in time and become Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. or President John F. Kennedy or Elvis Presley or Lady Diana or Oprah Winfrey or Maya Angelou or President William J. Clinton or President Barack Obama; which person would you become and why? CHOOSE "ONLY" ONE OF THE PEOPLE LISTED.
Obama because he has the largest real world implications. That is, If I was him I'd be able to change the world more than the others today. Even if Elvis or John F Kennedy came back from the grave, they wouldn't be given any political power necessarily haha.
I think out of philanthropy, Obama would have to be chosen.
Out of sheer fun, It would be Elvis!
This is a really weird and seemingly unconnected list of people, how did you make it?
Politicians, talk show hosts and kings of rock & roll?
I would have to choose Maya Angelou. Although I don't know a lot about her, what I do know of her is of a beautiful person who taught the world how to be kind, unselfish and to love one another. And that is what I try to live by.
Why would I want to be someone else? However wonderful their achievements, their dreams were not mine--at least, not the particular, individual parts; I can definitely understand Dr. King's famous 'dream' of justice for all.
I'm a musician; that's what I wanted to be, and I'm already better than anyone on the list (even, by my standards, Elvis.) Not as accessible, not as successful, not many (no doubt wonderful) things--but I'm living my dream, more or less, and however challenging, I really have no desire to 'bail' now, even if I magically could!
I cite a quote I heard years ago, and which I've already used in a comment on another author's hub, about this very thing.
Unfortunately, I don't remember who said it, but it sounds like one of the ancients, such as Confucius or Plato, or someone like that. I agree with the sentiment:
"To dream of the person you wish you were is to waste the person you are."

Our President offers an apology to countries we are not allied with, he does a 180 degree turn when he visits our Allies. Bare with us for now, Obama will no longer be President in a few short years.I hope you all stay safe in the meantime. Only G-D knows whom this man will help.
