While trying to implement his plan at the Paris Peace Conference, he became the first US president to travel to Europe while in office. On what rare unit of US currency is Wilson's image featured?

This man put into effect some of the US policies that have caused most of the banking debacle. He was, IMO the worst president we ever had. His policies were racist, causing black federal employees to lose their jobs. He caused us to invade Mexico and initiated the prejudicial way we treat our neighbors. Plus all of that, the last two years of his presidency his wife signed legislation and even spoke to congress. What a shameful way we began the 20th century.

From the article Wilson, 'at first unsympathetic, became a major advocate for women's suffrage after public pressure convinced him that to oppose women's suffrage was politically unwise' Sort of takes the gloss off it striker

Overpriced. Perhaps his wife should have been given a place on the currency.
