In a posted letter, Susan Eisenhower, President Eisenhower's granddaughter, expressed the family's gratitude for recent changes by architect Frank Gehry, but opposed the memorial's expansive modern construction and asked that more time be given to the process.

    I still want to know what is sooooooo wrong with a photograph of the president when he was a child?
    Of course, according to the flip flopping camp, only businessmen should become presidents so Ike should have never been elected. Way to go after your own party and a real hero who fought a real war.

    Ike was the last great Republican president until President Obama came along.
