I don't think much of Debs, LBJ, Malcolm X, Nader, Sanders, or Wellstone.

Chavez was a Communist. He got what he deserved. It is unfortunate for Cuba that Castro did not meet a simular end. Batista's rule would have ended soon enough and perhaps Democracy could have had a chance.
Malcom X was a racist of the highest order.
Lyndon Johnson? What did he do?
Ralph. Nader would shun the label of political hero. He considered himself (is he still alive?) a consumer advocate.
Martin Luther King, too would not refer to himself as a political hero or even as a hero. True, he had his faults but the man did have a vison and he put it all on the line to make that vison a reality. . On the other hand his family will hang any title on him that they belive will earn them a buck. King was beyond politics in a sense. He was more concerned with the human conditon. Politics was but one tool that he used. When you see what he risked and sacrificed for t hat vision you realize what a fraud Al Gore is. He talks the talk but cruises around in monster limos and SUVs and flies in private jets. Ralph Nader drove himself around in a used subcompact.
