    For me it is more about fairness. If my friend, who works in the community, had to renounce his UK citizenship in order to obtain his clearance, why the hell should a member of the Committee on Intelligence be allowed to go off and become a foreign citizen?

    Maybe Bachmann makes more sense in Swedish.

    I think where she got citizenship they speak German and French and English

    not Swedish

    very different countries. One is a landlocked Alpen nation bordered with Germany

    the other is a scandanavian one. Swiss table tennis players suck but their tennis players won the gold medal in doubles and have arguably the greatest player in history. Sweden had good tennis players a couple decades ago (Borg for example) and five of the greatest table tennis players ever-Jan Ove Waldner, Jorgen Perrson, my buddy Mikael Applegren,, the late great Kjell Johanson and Stellan Bengston

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander. If dual citizenship is considered a possible security concern, then she should not be in a position that could be compromising.
