I'm not sure I agree with Bernanke's assessment of Jackson. Jackson won the battle of New Orleans, after all. If he hadn't won, Louisianians would probably be drinking British tea now instead of our wonderful Community Coffee. It's distressing to think about!
In any event, I have another suggestion. Why not place St. Katharine Drexel's image on the ten dollar bill? A Catholic's image has never been featured on any of our currency; and St. Katharine would be a good person to fill the bill, so to speak.

Wouldn't it be lovely to see St.Katharine Drexel's face every time we pulled out a ten spot and started to spend it on something foolish? Her image would be a reminder that we should be more frugal and spend some of our wealth helping the less fortunate. Placing St. Katharine on the ten dollar bill would give us a twofer: she is both a woman and a representative of a religious minority.
