Margaret Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher: Great politician, one day I'd like to be like her (Except the woman part though).
WHAT IS THIS BLASPHEMY?? She wasn't a great politician - strong sure, but she really messed up Britain. I don't even think the Tories like her that much.
Friedrich Neitzsche - If his ideas weren't raped by the Nazis, he'd be the best philosopher of all time.
George Carlin - Best comedian i've ever seen. Really intelligent and made me laugh so hard I cried.
Christian X - King of Denmark during World War II. Said that if Germany forced him to give up the Jews that were taking refugee in Denmark, he and his family would wear the David's Star that Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis at the time, as a mark of his respect to their suffering.
Benjamin Franklin - Amazing polymath. Don't feel like going into more depth, but he's just awesome in so many levels.
