Obama is destined to go down in history as a transformational president. He has received the Nobel Peace Prize, is the first African American to become a US President and his Obamacare initiative is looking every more likely to succeed with each passing day. He will probably end up reforming immigration giving a path to citizenship to millions and may even achieve Middle Eastern peace before he is done. He plods and blunders, yet in the end succeeds where others before him have failed. Love him or hate him, he has made a difference in the country. When he is gone from office, he deserves a place on US currency. Since Jackson was only put there to mock him and Jackson is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Native Americans, it is time to replace him anyway and Obama may be just the man of the moment. What do you think? Obama on the 20? Move Roosevelt to the 20 and put Obama on the dime?

I don't think he has the credentials to replace Jessie on the $20. Maybe if puts together another gondola project like when he was state senator...

Tell me again why Obama got that Nobel Peace Prize. I don't recall the reason.

Obama should be on the $100 bill. It will only be worth $20 by the time he's finished,

I doubt we will be seeing any living president added to any money. The Republicans can't even get Reagan added to a bill and that man is dead.

I'd take Reagan over Jackson too.

Are you asking about Monopoly money?

No, when he goes back to Chicago, we can forget him.

You can put him on the post office wall.

No, that is the point. You will not be able to forget him. You will have Obamacare, immigration reform, politics at the highest levels open to African Americans and other minorities, banking and investment will never be the same. Election campaigns have become high tech affairs where the electorate is sliced, diced, and pitched. He has put his stamp on America and it is indelible.

I don't think Obama is going to be remembered quite as fondly as you are imagining.

The Nobel Prize was a joke. Like the Nobel Foundation, you're suffering from "premature speculation" about Obamacare.

I think by the time 2016 rolls around, Obama will have taken his rightful place at the top of the list -- the "Worst President Of All Time" list.
