    Should Mr Obama be the first black person on American Currency?
    Why or why not?
    What currency would you suggest his likeness appear on if you are of the opinion that he should be depicted on currency?

    I think he should have his face on the Pound.... the Egyptian Pound, not the UK Pound. In fact, any ME country would be fine.... since he seems to favor them over our country.

    How about stamping him on a penny so it reminds all of a 'scent'?

    How about another $1 coin? One that's shiny on the outside but made of lead on the inside.

    It is federal law that no living man or woman can appear on U.S. currency, so we have a long time to consider the answers to these questions.

    He should have his face on the Ruble, he's inflicted more damage on the USA than a Russian first strike could ever accomplish

    I am merely looking towards the future.
    I'm pro-active like that.

    Sorry, I thought you were talking in the near term. My mistake.

    But we still can't answer those questions until he finishes his time in office, and we can see what effect his decisions and policies will have. Then there is the harder decision of which of the current likenesses do we remove?

    I think Obama deserves an aircraft carrier to be named after him.
    After all he got OBL.
