    Who should be added to Mount Rushmore?

    Or should it stay the same?

    Just to be fair, I will include two Republicans and two Democrats in the poll, along with an other category.

    Facts About Mount Rushmore

    The four presidents carved in the mountain are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.

    Thomas Jefferson was originally started on George Washington's right. However, after 18 months they realized that it was not working. Jefferson's face was dynamited off and carved on the other side.

    It took 14 years to complete Mount Rushmore.

    No one died while building Mount Rushmore.

    The sculpture cost $989,992.32 to build.

    There is a cave behind the carving called the "Hall of Records." It was intended to house the story of Mount Rushmore but was never completed due to lack of funding.

    It was intended to be a tourist attraction, but I am not sure how that is working out for the state. I wouldn't want to go there just to see Mount Rushmore...

    I voted other just because I don't see any point in changing it.

    Maybe Eisenhower but I think it would be dumb to add anyone else.
    To much partisanship these days.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If you were to add another president it should be Calvin Coolidge. After all, he is the one who fought to make it happen.

    However, I'd prefer no additions be made.

    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
