I removed Robert E. Lee. He is not an American hero--he was a traitor who waged war against his country and his fellow citizens.--RossC 11:43, 16 December 2008 (EST)

I do understand your point of view; But, before removing Lee I would like to have the opinion of other editors or an honest debate. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 14:14, 16 December 2008 (EST)
What's to debate? He fought for the enemy. He's responsible for the deaths of thousands of loyal American soldiers. If you're going to include Lee in the list, you might as well add Benedict Arnold, John Wilkes Booth, Adlrich Ames, Timothy McVeigh, and the 9/11 hijackers to the list.--RossC 15:03, 16 December 2008 (EST)
To his credit, he came pretty close to being the next George Washington... but I agree, even if he'd won, he'd have been a confederate hero, not an American hero.
On a different note - removed Barry Bonds from the links section. With the scandals going on, he really isn't a good role model right now.Mikek 15:13, 16 December 2008 (EST)
There's one thing I don't understand about this page. Shouldn't the McCain picture not be so big? It's probably four times bigger than any other picture on there. JY23 15:31, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Because he's a big American hero--unlike that traitorous Lee. Let's stick to the issue, please.--RossC 15:51, 16 December 2008 (EST)

I question actor Paul Newman and the notorious drug user Elvis Presley. They are famous; they are not heroes. --Ed Poor Talk 10:34, 17 December 2008 (EST)
