It has been speculated that there is room for a fifth President on the Mount Rushmore monument in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The four presidents that current grace the monument are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. These four presidents were selected by the sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, for protecting the republic and enlarging it. Some think that it is time for the fifth face to be added. Which president should be selected to fill that 5th slot? Franklin Delano Roosevelt? Harry S. Truman? Dwight D. Eisenhower? John F. Kennedy? Ronald Wilson Reagan? George H. W. Bush? Barack H. Obama? Why?
