Is Thomas Paine "active in politics" for supplement

<p>GWU Supplement:</p>

<p>If you could be any one person who has been active inpolitics, who would you choose to be and why?</p>

<p>Want to do Paine and Common Sense blah blah blah</p>

<p>Even though he wasn't a politician, he was active in politics, correct?</p>

<p>He was a pamphleteer, so yes. Probably a good choice, since he’s important, but relatively obscure. If you can write knowledgeably about him as a HS student, you should be pretty impressive, at least compared to the average HS student who probably writes on far more well-known and/or contemporary figures.</p>
