Could an Obama Dollar Bill Help Rebrand the U.S.? | Co.Design

How would replacing Washington on the 1 dollar bill with Obama improve US relations or even putting a native American teepee on the 5 dollar bill do it? Lastly FDR replacing Franklin. I hope i'm not the only one that finds it pointless, but stupidly crazy.
Not to mention I don't like the euro like design. Fine, money is exchanged "vertically" but I don't see that as big reason to just redesign the dollar bills. I also think modeling it directly after the euro just makes it seem like the US wants/needs to be ruled by a country in Europe, once again.
Lasty, how would printing these in mass and recalling old currency help us get out of a recession. How would it not be a huge waste of money, no to mention destroying history of our money system at the same time. I get why the Euro was made since over there countries are tightly packed in and currency exchange is a nightmare and some shops wouldn't take one form of money, over another. But seriously, do we really need something as stupid as this?
