A simple answer to "where was Obama born" presumes nothing. It's a straightforward question. You can ask me that right now and I'll end the discussion right away. Hawaii!
Or, maybe she's a birther, and lots of voters, me included, want to know before we cast our votes for a birther. Clinging to that conspiracy nonsense tells me something very important about a candidate - IMO they're stupid, or pander to the stupid. But maybe you think the opposite - if they believe Obama was born in Hawaii, there is no question, THEY are the stupid ones. Either way, it's a distinguishing viewpoint.
