He left a body of work that is not the same as the Federalist Papers, to be sure. But his understanding of human nature, of the world around him, and of the politics of the day was second to none.

Read his autobiograpy, read his speeches before the british parliament (talk about brave), his many, many letters he wrote to various politicos. It's amazing. Then consider his work in science, printing, civil affairs, and massaging the french during the war and it's hard to believe one man could be so talented.

Could any man have been more fascinating than Franklin? I don't think so. The greatest men of that era were Franklin, Washington, Hamilton and Madison.
