They can be living or dead. Who would you invite? I'd invite-Abraham Lincoln,President Obama,Truman Capote,Andy Warhol and Robin Williams (but only if he promises not to hog the conversation). Who would you invite???

Socrates
Cicero
Leonardo da Vinci
Oscar Wilde
Nikola Tesla

Socrates and Cicero would probably get into a philosophical debate, Leonardo and Tesla would talk about technology, and Wilde would make clever quips combining the two separate circles.

1. Robert Nozick -- dead for several years. He was a philosophy professor at Harvard. Best known for his 1973 book "Anarchy, State and Utopia" -- probably the most famous book on libertarian philosophy.

2. John Bogle -- age 80. Founder of Vanguard, the nation's lowest cost & second largest mutual fund company. He was CEO & Chairman of Vanguard from 1974-1996, stepping down as CEO when he got a heart transplant after decades of heart problems. Departed as Chairman at required retirement age of 70. Author of a number of books on investing. He made a career out of the the stunningly simply idea that costs matter. Responsible for creating the first index fund available to retail investors.

3. Bruce Dickinson - Lead singer of Iron Maiden from 1981-1992 & again from 1999-now. During those years he was gone he pursued a solo career, producing some highly regarding albums. Generally considered one of the best vocalists in the world of metal.

4. Wayne LaPierre -- Executive Vice President of NRA. Click on the link in my sig line and you'll see Wayne.

5. George Carlin
