I had the question asked of me, and it was a no brainer. If I had the chance to meet any of the leaders of this country, I would take it in a heart beat. Whether my political or personal views aligned with them or not. This is especially true with ANY President. I have found there are people who disagree (especially civilians). What do you think?

I wouldn't walk across the street to meet either Clinton or Obama - but if I did meet them I would treat them with them professional courtesy.

I assume meeting the president is not the same thing as sitting down with the president having a discussion and telling him my point of view I would certainly be glad to have a discussion with any policy maker. I would’ve been glad to have a discussion with any of the officers assigned over me if they wanted my opinion but if it was just to shake hands and get a picture with a famous person that would not interest me

No, I wouldn't, and it is simply because I personally have no desire to meet and interact with people I don't agree with, regardless of their position, or former position. It is the same with celebrities, sports figures or everyday people...I just prefer like minded individuals. Of course, it might just be that I am not a "people person" and just meeting people for the sake of meeting them does not appeal to me.

If you're serving you can have no opinion (out loud). When you're civilian you're all opinion. I agree with the member above who said we need to be open minded enough to meet and find common ground. When we wall off we start thinking our fellow Americans are all idiots (or half of them, anyway) and that's not true and not a good place to be. In the days gone by we had lots of hard held and hard-headed opinions on politics but stayed friends. We need that now

Anyone trying to "school" a sitting president while at a meet and greet would be unceremoniously ushered away before you could utter "schnitzelfruven". If and when called on or up or into the presence for a legit reason I would be extremely courteous and respectful. Otherwise the answer is no.

I'm the same way. Not much of a people person (living on 300 acres helps with that lol). Not would I want to have a conversation or anything similar with individuals who are not like minded. Not sure I'd be able to control my filter that much.

That is an interesting attitude and deserving of some respect, but how are you going to learn something new? How are you going to defend your own ideas if you don't know what the other ideas are? Know your enemy, and even learn something from him if only to use it against him more effectively.

Id like to meet them all but probably wouldn't talk politics... I know for sure I'd pass up the offer if Clinton offered me a cigar though.
