Which great Leaders would you like to have again for our world?

Let's say it was possible to have some leader back for our times.

which leaders would you like to have back and why them?
How these leaders can affect on our lives nowadays?

Could Gandhi stop the Middle east unending war if he was alive today?
would you like to have him back, alive, walking on earth again?

    Sep 14 2012: - Churchill: a mix of great vision and great courage, both on national and international levels. And as a bonus, great quotes.
    - FDR: same reasons than Churchill (minus the quotes)
    - Seneca for his wisdom and humility (a rare quality when you are one the richest and most powerful men of your time)

  • Sep 12 2012: Gandhi, for justice through peaceful means.

    Benjamin Franklin for his politics, humor, social grace, inventiveness and wisdom.
    • Sep 12 2012: Hello Barry

      Would that work nowadays as we became mixed culturally and we invented Internet where the communication is very fast compared to their times?

      I just wonder how different they could be, if there, say, reborn among us

      Thanks
