Who would you have design your presidential library and what would it look like? (The Bush v.43 library is so boring and ugly.)

I'd take Richard Meier or someone in that vein.

I'd put my library in a closet somewhere. Presidential libraries are massive wastes of money.

Don't know what it would look like, but it would be staffed by helpful felines:

Libraries? The first order of business would be to declare everyday a national no pants day.

I've visited 4 Presidential libraries and live a stone's throw from Harry Truman's library. They are places where you study and explore history. The study of history is never a waste of money. It's through the study of history that we understand today.

Pretty sure mine would include a super hyped up rollercoaster that would stop in a tunnel and suddenly force you to watch the hall of president's show.

Of the Presidential libraries I've visited the one that stands out is Eisenhower's. He had his built in his home town of Abilene Kansas. One of the most important men of the 20th Century and he's buried in a small farm town in the middle of the Kansas prairie. You get there and it looks like this huge park with Ike's boyhood home in the middle of it. Then you realize they basically razed four square residential blocks to make it which is a lot of the town's homes when you're talking about a town that small.

I'd turn Airforce One into a mobile library. Any subsequent action movies set aboard would then need to heavily feature silenced weapons.
