Some Picks for Perfect Dinner Partner

Good Morning America asked who you would dine with, if you could sit down to dinner with anyone you would like. Here is a sampling of the e-mails we received.

Michael Caine, actor: Michael Caine, Michael Caine, Michael Caine. I think he would make a very funny, interesting dinner companion, would keep everyone entertained, is not bad on the eye and seems to love the ladies.

— Margaret , Fullerton, Calif.

Katharine Graham, former longtime publisher of Washington Post, deceased: If I could I would like to sit next to the late Katharine Graham. I was always fascinated by her poise and demeanor. Aside from the fact that I too enjoy politics, I was employed within the printing industry for 22 years and the technology that I have witnessed has been so great, to have discussed this with her would have been a joy.

— Jeannie, Middletown, N.Y.

Celine Dion, singer: I if had to choose someone to have dinner with it would be Celine Dion. The reason I would choose her is because of her hometown of Quebec. Actually, I live relatively near where she grew up.

She has pierced through the music industry with great determination. She sings excellent songs, which even my children know by heart. My children's first concert was a Celine Dion concert.

She is a woman who is compassionate towards mankind. You can hear it in her songs. She is totally dedicated to what she does best. She is a wonderful singer and mother. She is just someone that I cannot get enough of.

Although many people have criticized her, I admire her and hope that she continues making many more songs.

She is all in all a "star".

— Carol-Ann, New Orleans Mia Hamm, U.S. soccer star: I would want to sit by Mia Hamm.

She is such a great role model for girls, especially my daughter, who idolizes her. What an experience it would be to be sitting next to the person who inspires you do to your best and try to make your dreams come true.

— JoAnn, address unknown

Jimmy Buffett, singer: If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be Jimmy Buffett and his family. I guess you could say I grew up a "parrothead" and we have traveled to see his shows every year. He just seems like a down-to-earth person, like my friends and family, someone we would be friends with. My family is very laid back and always enjoys a good time. Jimmy's music is always a staple item in our boats, cars and of course at Christmas! When children and parents are listening to the same music, there's got to be something there. Jimmy is one person I'd like to meet, simply because he seems so much like the people I already know.

— Sara, Mission, Kan.

Joan Rivers, former TV talk show host: I would choose Joan Rivers, as I am sure she could keep the conversation going and make it a delightful time!

— Mary, Marlette, Mich. Robert Duvall, actor: I have always wanted to sit next to Robert Duvall … I think he is such an unassuming, leading man. After seeing his unforgettable performance in The Apostle, I would walk around foolishly saying, "oh glory"… and to be able to sit with him at dinner would be fabulous!!! Perhaps we'd be able to share some fried chicken and sweet tea!!!

— Colleen, Lawrenceville, Ga.

Albama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore (ousted from bench last week for over his monument to the Ten Commandments) If I was to host a dinner party my first guest would be Chief Justice Roy Moore, because I support his stand that he took in upholding the oath that he took. I think that when a person of such status can put away tradition and take a stand for what he believes in says a lot about this man of great morals.

Next, Barbara Walters (anchor of ABCNEWS' 20/20), because I just love the way she has conducted herself over the years and what and excellent investigator of truth. Of course, another choice would be my mother, a great woman that gave her all for her children and family and has great wisdom. She is the mother of 17 children and has achieved many great accomplishments in life, and I would love for the world to get a chance to see this great woman.

— Sharon, address unknown

Deceased Father:My Dad. He passed away last year and there are still questions I love to ask. My Uncle Alf also passed away and I miss him.I'd love to hear his stories one more time. Mary Cassatt (painter), I would love to hear stories about what it must have been like to be a female artist during the French Impressionist era.

— Victoria, Fort Mitchell

Charlie Gibson, ABCNEWS' Good Morning America anchor: I would love to have my dad sitting next to me at a dinner table, as I lost him to a heart attack seven years ago and miss him tremendously, but because that's not possible, I would want to sit next to Charlie Gibson. I have admired him for years and seeing how he is with children and was at his daughter's wedding reminds me of how my dad always was with me.

— Connie, Newcastle,Wash.
