    Seems like a no-brainer for the first African-American president. I assume it will take a couple of decades, though, to permit the political temperature of the time simmer down.

    Not while any of us are alive.

    Gonna need to vote 'no' only because I think 'currency' as we know it will cease to exist.

    No, not Ragu-meggedon.

    I think credit cards will advance to that point, but there will always be some form of currency.

    The real question is who does Obama supplant? Hamlton on the $10? Figure Washington, Lincoln and Grant are safe and Jackson is about to be replaced by Harriet Tubman.

    Obama will replace Tubman by the end of the century.

    Put Obama on the $2. Jefferson already has the nickel.

    Wasn't Bill Clinton the first black president ?

    Put him on the quarter and take off Washington, who is already on the $1.

    Seems like they now need to balance things out and put a Latino on one of the
    bills. Perhaps Alberto Gonzales.

    Maybe he'll replace Smokin' Joe Camel on the Camel cash. The man does like to smoke ...

    Obama won't be on the currency until this country builds a wall ... to keep people in, as most Socialist countries do.
