If you could have lunch with any, one, US President, who would you choose?
What would you hope to learn from him? And why would you pick that president?
Abraham Lincoln, his thoughts and viewpoints seem quite inspiring. He's not a president, but I think it would be awesome to talk to Martin Luther King, too.
I would have lunch with John F. Kennedy on November 21, 1963. That way I can warn him about what will happen if he decides to ride aboard the Dallas motorcade the following day.
It's too hard to pick one, kbdressen. I can think of four I'd love to chat with over lunch: Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Kennedy.
But since I can only pick one, it would have to be Obama so I can ask him, from my perspective of understanding, what it was really like being the first president of color. I want to learn from him how he dealt with the "two conversations" that constantly went on in his head. People of color, particularly African-Americans, always have an awareness of how they come across to the majority race and how they are actually perceived. I think it would be an interesting conversation with a man who held the highest position of power to put his guards down and talk about that reality.

Inquiring minds want to know... Has anyone changed their opinion of Donald Trump for whatever reason? I know he's lost a few supporters, but not very many; and it seems like we might be getting used to Trump's cadence. Things don't feel quite so raw, anymore. Am I right about that?I have never been...

Why do people not want to hear the truth or reality, even when stated in a tactful or pc manner?
