Who deserves the great honor of being recognized alongside Rush Limbaugh inside the Missouri State Capitol rotunda? The leadership of the House of Representatives is looking for inductees to the Hall of Famous Missourians!

In addition to the great Limbaugh, the hall includes some very influential Missourians like Dred Scott, Stan Musial, Sacajawea and Walter Cronkite.

House Speaker Tim Jones announced last week that he is seeking candidates and plans to soon make a top ten list, which he will use to ultimately select three new members.

Below, RFT presents in no particular order, our top thirteen suggestions. Let us know your picks in the comments!
