Not a fan of Wilson but don't want to beat a dead horse.

After reading your presidential rankings, wanted to comment that Andrew Jackson is on the $20 bill simply for mockery. That is, he was the last president to successfully defeat the efforts to establish a Central Bank in this country. Our 3rd Central Bank, the Fed, disrespects this legacy by putting his face on a highly used piece of currency. I can't help but think that a similar type of spirit is behind putting another Central Bank opponent, Jefferson, on the non-sensical $2 bill.
