This is a video posted on March 23 by the State Department’s DGHR with the following description: “Ambassadors from around the world gathered in Washington, D.C. on March 14 and 15, 2016. When asked whose picture they would like to see on a redesigned U.S. banknote.” Sounds fun enough, okay. But. Why? How is this useful to DGHR or the State Department? The video currently has 524 views on YouTube.

Anyone thought about cost versus return or is this one of those “the intern did it” stuff?
