If you think about all people that make it on to some denomination of our currency, they are established leaders. Hamilton, though never president, is part of that very special club. Removing Jackson from the club isn't an answer either, though I realize that cases can be made for or against keeping him. There have been presidents far less worthy on currency before, though we have stopped using those denominations since.

To stir the pot a bit... There are a few instances where we have the same leaders on 2 forms of currency:

Jefferson ( $2 bill and Nickel)
Lincoln ( Penny and 5$ bill)
Washington( quarter and 1$ bill) (blasphemy!)

Taking the father of the banking system off the 10$bill isn't the answer nor is moving jackson out of his place in that special club.
