I have a remington 870 supermagnum 12 gauge. Will a slug sratch the inside of the barrel? If not which slugs would be best to use?

Lead slug won't. Copper jacketed shouldn't, since copper is much softer than steel. Besides, most slugs sit in a plastic cup if I recall correctly.

I just tried out the Remington Sluggers. They are all lead and pre-rifled for smoothbores like mine. They were pretty accurate, but I only shot three before my shoulder started aching.

Is a country that would re-elect Baroke Hussein Owebama really worth saving?

If you're asking if lead, foster type slugs through a smoothbore barrel would cause scratches, I might be in big trouble since I've qualified 47 officers so far this month with slugs and 00 buck! You're ok.
