    You may well be right. A couple of points.

    1. Obama was a prof of Constitutional law at U. of Chicago law school, which is a top-tier school and considered conservative; and he was so good that, despite its conservatism, the school offered him tenure. So whatever he decides about the 14th Amendment is likely to be the right call.

    2. The ideal face to put on the $1 trillion coin would be, of course, that of John Boehner. I'm just trying to think of the image for the obverse--maybe the Treasury building going off Niagara Falls?

      And your point #2 proves my point #1!
