A man who was too headstrong and selfish and wrongfully followed his own personal agenda doing whatever he pleased, including mass murder, and does not even support the idea of paper money is hardly the person qualified to personify our great country and its legal tender.

I choose President George Washington because his is a tremendous person and leading America into a great country. He was a firm believer in his own dignity to the point of vanity.
