Poor Betsy R. & John H., they've gotten fewer votes than the King

There was a Fun Item on Daily Kos yesterday, July 4th, wherein "kossacks" were polled regarding "who would you rather have an ale with", the choices being Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Betsy Ross, George Washington, Sam Adams, Ben Franklin, Abigail Adams, John Hancock, and King George III. (To find this poll you'll have to go to the bottom of the Kos permalink page I've linked).

Benjamin Franklin was the clear winner. Some people in the comments section said that they'd like to observe how such a physically ungainly man was so attractive to the Ladies.

My choice, though it was not provided as an option, would be to have an ale with Abigail and John Adams together. I would love to catch a glimpse of what all reports say was an exquisite and powerful companionship.

And the next time-travel project after that: a beer with Walt Whitman and Peter Doyle.

Sam Adams never stops talking about those awful ales he brews. I'd go for Thomas, of course.. lots of questions I'd like to ask him and he incurred debt to buy the best wine while Franklin was thrifty. Plus the cops leave you alone because they know messing with Jefferson is the last thing they want to do.
