The 10 Greatest Americans of My 8 Decades


Recently, New York's Governor Cuomo brashly asserted that America "was never that great." So, for Mr. Cuomo, here is a list of those I consider the ten greatest Americans of my lifetime as I nudge closer to my 80th birthday. A list like this is quite subjective. I selected those whose significant impact on American greatness cannot be denied. It was extremely difficult to boil it down to ten. So, I have included thirty others - any one of whom could have justifiably been in the Top 10.
