I decided I'd pick five for each one, and to weigh them by historical importance and relevancy so that it doesn't inflate the answer choices by just who I liked. 

Republican: 

La Follette, Taft, Sumner, Borah, Sherman. (Honorable mention goes to Goldwater)

Democratic: 

LBJ, Ted, Burr, King, Kefauver. (Honorable mention goes to Calhoun)
