Who’s really eligible to be president?


As far as I’m concerned, the definitive proof about President Obama’s US Citizenship (apart from silly things like extensive documentation and an actual birth certificate, which the birthers conveniently ignore) is the fact that Hillary Clinton’s camp pooh-poohed the whole thing during the campaign.  If there had been anything to it, they’d have been on it like the proverbial odor on excrement.  So, one more time…

Unfortunately, the text of the Constitution does not define natural born citizenship, and neither the Supreme Court nor Congress has weighed in on the question. This much is clear. The term “natural born citizen” was borrowed from the English concept of “natural born subject,” which came from Calvin’s Case, a 1608 decision.
