Tremendously hard to pick just one soul...(The late, great) Hunter S. Thompson would undoubtedly surface to the top of my list.

I've been asked this before ... Julia. Not just for her cooking (that would intimidate her) but because of her military history, which I can really identify with.

Barbara Walters and Oprah Winfrey-----what an interesting evening that would be and if they didn't mind we could throw in Star Jones and Rosie O'Donnell just for the fireworks factor-----Ha!!! As you can see--I want entertainment for that night.

I think we're looking for famous deceased people. But if you do have them over for dinner, can I come? I LOVE drama.

They all went head over heels for him. You would think they would have a head on their shoulders.

The first person I thought of when I saw this thread was Lincoln too. A few others pop into mind. Malcolm X, JFK, Barishnikov, Brad Pitt (I'd like to see what he's really like, not from what we see at the movies and from the paparazzi, he could bring his family. I'm sure Aidan would love to play with his kids), David Sedaris would be a riot.

Claire, Julia wasn't in the military, she was in the OSS, which was the forerunner of the CIA.

Just one person? hmmmmm not sure I could pick just one.... three maybe.
