President Bush's picture on a fake $200 bill

Well, here's a nice one. A (undoubtedly visionary) woman pays in a shop, using a 200 dollar bill with the picture of George Bush on it. See this CNN-story. It's not that strange an idea. If Bush wins the upcoming elections he may start thinking he is a brilliant statesman that ranks alongside Franklin and all the others.

I wonder if, in case I were a US states official, I would be able to make Bush sign a Presidential Decree that -to celebrate his election victory- he's going to be on the next bank note. My guess is that Bush checks the details of such a decision as good as the intelligence reports he gets every now and then. Which would be interesting, because these details state that according to US law, only dead man may become immortal by appearing on US bank notes.
