I purposely exempted the 'reformists' (Nagy, Dubcek, Deng, Gorbachev), revisionists or pro-WWI or non-revolutionary socialists (incl. Kautsky through the Eurocommunists, Allende...) and included Castro.

the top 4 will advance to the second round.

I guess I'll vote for Lenin.  But only because of this.



Also, why is Pol Pot not included?

Ho Chi Minh was probably the greater oversight.

OK, I looked up their scores, and I would like to change my vote.  I'm happy with my Mao and Stalin votes, but I would like to change my Lenin vote to Breschnev, who apparently did a lot of good works in Afghanistan.  Lenin barely ranks at all.

I disagree.  He (or at least the character he plays here) has never hid the fact that he loves the murdering of "the poors".
