Who In History Would You Like To Interview?

At a Friars Club tribute to Bob Woodruff the other night, a panel of TV journalists was asked that very question.

One replied Sandy Koufax because the famed pitcher was so inspirational and also has never talked much to press, so it would be a big "get."

Another remarked that Walter Cronkite always wished he could have interrogated Columbus and Magellan (above) to get to the heart of their explorational wizardry.

And yet another journo said meeting Paul McCartney was the thrill of a lifetime, and the Beatle was charming, signing an autograph like a Liverpudlian delight.

(Take note, Scorsese. Can a very long documentary on Sir Paul be far behind?)

Who would I pick? Well, if we're talking anyone living or dead, I'd probably say Kathy Griffin.

And amazingly, my wish has come true! This week's column is a hilarious interview with just that very person!

How about you?

Magellan or McCartney?

Judas Iscariot. I'd love to find out if he was truly evil, as Christians profess, or just a disillusioned follower of the Nazarene. Failing that, how about Snooki?

Jesus, and the first thing I'd ask is "Did you really say all that shit?"

My fondest wish is that Gore Vidal would write a tell-all book to be published after his death; he knows pretty much all the dirt on the major figures of the past century, and it would be quite an eye-opener.

J Edgar Hoover and Marilyn Monroe, but all I'm stuck with is Leonardo Dicaprio and Michelle Williams.

Garbo, Warhol, or George Cukor would do it for me.
