“Who are the three living politicians you would like to meet and why?”

Mother

Clara Miotke, 93, Perry, Mich.

“President Bush. I’d like to ask him how he found out so much about government and how to handle governmental issues.”

Daughter

Georganne Withey, 69, Webberville, Mich.

“Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela are living politicians I’d like to meet. President Carter proves inspirational in his Habitat for Humanity and world peace efforts. President Clinton stabilized the U.S. economically and remains a respected political figure worldwide. Nelson Mandela in his perseverance for human rights and equality is laudable.”

Granddaughter

Stephanee Stoner, 32, Lowell, Mich.

“In this election year, I’d like meet John McCain and Barack Obama to get a more personal view of their political positions. I would also like to meet Bill Clinton. As probably the most successful U.S. president of my generation, I’d like to know how he’d fix the current state of the union.”

Great-granddaughter

Brittany Withey, 19, East Lansing, Mich.

“If I could meet three living politicians [or political figures], I would want to meet Kwame Kilpatrick, Barack Obama and Rush Limbaugh. I would pick these three because they are all in totally different situations right now and would have different views on many important topics.”
