$10

That's the denomination of the bill slated to have a woman on it, to be unveiled in 2020, the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote.

Bravo for whoever she turns out to be, but she'll displace Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first secretary of the treasury and indispensible in forging our Constitution. Yes, the $10 bill is up next for redesign, but change the schedule and put her on the $20 and boot brutal Native American mass killer Andrew Jackson.

Oh, and he never trusted paper currency, either.
