My list of dream dinner guests

There is an old party question guaranteed to stimulate conversation and open debate. Imagine you could invite any three people to dinner that night. Anyone from throughout history, who would you invite? I would probably select people from a common field. I believe the conversation would be deeper. Here is a list from each prominent category. I would probably lean towards Churchill/Lincoln/Franklin. I can imagine sitting back and listening to each of them out do the other with stories and human observations.
