Kathryn’s confusion is excusable. The way some of Barack Obama’s supporters are talking, it’s just a matter of time.
The response to this idea on Twitter was, shall we say, unenthusiastic.

MSNBC debated on TV whether Obama or Clinton should be the next president put on Mt Rushmore… Reagan deserves 100x over before Obama.—

I can't believe they are even considering putting Obama on Mount Rushmore.—

Perhaps Obama deserves special treatment on the Mountain.
Then again, maybe another location altogether would be more appropriate:
Only place he deserves is chiseled into the lid of a septic tank
Somewhere, Gutzon Borglum is rolling over in his grave.
It was just a matter of time: A White House petition to “Place the likeness of President Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore.”
