I think the best memorial to Eisenhower is the biggest assed rig of a monument ... one of those vanishing point things with a big truck exploding out of the distance, a huge bumper and grill blazing in alabaster white !

Ike learned, as a successful general in WW2, that the biggest problem to a moving army was food and supplies and THAT required roadways.

When he became President, he successfully initiated and accomplished quite a bit of inter and intra-state road system that, to this day, are still maintained , rejuvenated or expanded upon.

America prospered MIGHTILY in the 50's and 60's becauser of the transportation system that supplied American industry, manufacturing and every element of infra-structure.

Yup ... some big-assed Pete bursting out of the distance ... a hunnert feet high an' a hunnert feet long should be about right.

There were three recessions in the Ike years, 1954, which led to a Democrat Congress, 1957, which led to a 2-1 Democrat Congress, and 1960, which led to Kennedy-Johnson.
