    One of my favourites is Chiang Kai Shek



    Ruthless, principled, and as a political strategist very deft; still capable of mistakes but one history should judge fairly favourably, I think.

    Leonardo da Vince would be the person historically I think of. His artistic talents, his foresight, his observations and mental connections are what I tune into.
