On the topic of History's Best United States Founding Father, the six people up for consideration between Craig and the panelists - Time magazine journalist Joel Stein, comedian Jo Koy and actor Fred Willard - are: George Washington; John Adams; Thomas Jefferson; Benjamin Franklin; James Madison; and Alexander Hamilton. Beyond the merits of each of the six as the best, the panelists decide to limit their judgment to what the men did as founding fathers, and not their entire careers, especially in providing the leadership that makes the United States a great country. They compare the recognition each has received in such ways as having places named after them or monuments erected in their honor. They also debate whether items of disrepute, especially by today's standards, should count against any of the six. They conclude their discussion by talking about why the founding of the United States is important in a historical context compared to the founding of any other country.
