Benjamin Franklin a President - Who Knew?

Have you seen the recent Lowe's commercials on TV? They advertise their President's Day Sale, with animated currency floating down the screen....while a voice says something about saving lots of Benjamins and Washingtons.......hmmm.....I had to back it up the first time to make sure I heard it correctly. Yep. They think that Benjamin Franklin was a US President!! (old Ben is on the Hundred Dollar Bill) And why did they refer to him by his first name...and George Washington by his last?? And who wants to save a bunch of ONE DOLLAR BILLS anyway??!!
