Here are some of the people that I admire (and a list of some that I do not care for too much)

Well first and foremost I have to say that I really look up to:
 
John F. Kennedy Jr. (1960-1999)- I look up to this man because he is the type of person I aspire to be (and who most people want to be as well).  He was a businessman, publisher, philanthropist, as well as being intelligent, and who no doubt would have followed in his father's footsteps and go into politics (which is what I hopefully am able to do) if not for his unfortunate accident which killed his wife and wife's sister as well.  He lived in a loft in TriBeCa  and he went to Brown University and then NYU Law School (I also hope to become a lawyer).  He was a man who had many talents, interests, and achievements and I can go on and on about him but clearly you can see why I admire him so much. (If you still don't understand then I suggest you do some research on him and his family).
 
Bill O'Reilly (host of Fox TV's O'Reilly Factor)- Well, he is from Long Island but more importantly after reading his book The O'Reilly Factor I learned that he comes from a similar background just like me and we also share many of the same beliefs.  True, he might be a little outspoken at times and he almost never agrees with the beliefs of the people who go on his show, however, he shows himself to be intelligent, well informed of the issues, and well prepared to challenge his guests knowledge as well as informing the viewers of the issues that need to be addressed!
 
Hugh Hefner (founder of Playboy)- I admire this man not only for founding Playboy but also because, and now I don't care what anyone says you have to respect a man that is a multi-millionaire, walks around in silk pajamas almost all day long and his pick of some of the most beautiful women in the world to have his way with!! (Now I may be Catholic and somewhat of a conservative but, this guy is definately the Man!!).
 
David Beckham (Manchester United)- David is a professional football player or as we like to call it in America...soccer player.  He plays for one of the most famous soccer team's in the world if not the greatest team of all-time-Manchester United!!  David Beckham is arguably the best soccer player in the world if not one of the best!  He also plays for England in the World Cup....and he is married to Victoria Adams (Posh Spice)!!
 
Robert Shapiro (Defense Attorney)- Well, before he was a member of O.J. Simpson's so called 'Dream Team' he was a graduate of UCLA with a major in Finance and with all intentions of going into Corporate & Securities Law, however, after law school and spending time in the District Attorney's office he decided that Criminal Law had the best courtroom experience and liked it so much he decided to stick with it.  Mr. Shapiro is a partner in the law firm of Christensen, Miller, Fink, Jacobs, Glaser, Weil & Shapiro, LLP.  In addition he has represented some celebrity-like clients such as: Linda Lovelace in Las Vegas, Johnny Carson in Los Angeles, and Marlon Brando's son, Christian. He has also defended baseball players Jose Canseco, Darryl Strawberry and Vince Coleman. He also represented one of the biggest marijuana dealers in the world.  Mr. Shapiro has also lectured extensively on Criminal Law and has written numerous books on the subject as well.  He has also started a web site www.legalzoom.com and he can defend you the next time you get in trouble for the low low price of $525 an hour!!  You have to love the legal profession (that's why I am becoming a lawyer).
 
MORE TO COME SOON!!! (Also I will be adding a list of people I dislike)!
