    Some want to replace Alexander Hamilton on the Ten spot with a female.

    If so, who should we see in the picture?

    I would rather see the 20 changed and Hamilton kept on the 10.

    I would vote for Abigail Adams to replace Jackson.

    It is kind of ironic that Andrew Jackson is on the $20 bill since he opposed the National Bank.

    Why not sell portrait rights to the $20 bill like many cities do to stadiums?

    Alexander Hamilton should stay on the $10.00 bill. This placing a woman on the #10.00 bill is a bunch of political correctness.

    I think with all the accomplishments made in recent years by a female it would be a difficult go. I know they put Susan B. Anthony on the coin for the efforts she has made, but to date no other woman has been honored like so. I guess we should go for someone like Rosa Parks for the accomplishments and contributions she getting the African American community where they are today.

    I don't see why it should be changed at all but if they were going to change it then I would have to go with Rosa Parks.
    She would be a great lady to have on one of the bills. An American women who truly made a difference for her country.

    Leave Hamilton on the $10 bill. He was a founding father and the architect of the National Bank.

    I say put Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks on the $20 bill. Not both on the same bill but have two versions, one with Tubman, one with Parks.If I had to choose only one person I would go with Harriet Tubman. Maybe show her holding a burning confederate flag.

    I don't think it should be changed at all. Money is a piece of American history and we shouldn't be changing it. If they want to add someone, they should make a new denomination to do so...make a $75 bill or something.
