    Pick a note denomination and use it for several people over time.  In that regard, the $10 bill might be good, because, except for Franklin's image on the $100 bill,  it doesn't have a President on it.  Hamilton was only Secretary of the Treasury and a proponent of government debt.  The Republicans should be rushing to pull his face off the currency.  Once that happens, Perkins should probably be added, since she did hold Cabinet rank.  The image on the bill could then be changed every so often, say every ten years.  The Treasury would love it as well because of the seigniorage associated with people collecting currency.
