    Why?

    And here is a critical point. Is the question worthy of discussion, as it has been run through the courts on numerous occasions, and state governments are crafting laws so this doesn't happen again.

    Instead of looking at the source and dismissing it, how about looking at the question in question and the activity surrounding it.

    McCain seems to have been held to one standard, and Obama another.

    Statements by state officials are meaningless. Let's have the hard evidence before the Senate at a minimum... as McCain was forced to do.

    Is it asking too much when talking about the the presidency? We do have rules for this, do we not?

    PS. At least I will give credit that this hasn't been bumped to conspiracy theories. It's a question of law that seems to be unresolved.

    His live birth record doesn't satisfy for some on legal grounds; just as a Canadian Passport isn't a viable primary source of identification to get a Driver's License!!! Who woulda thunk it?

    This should be at the forefront... satisfying the nation that the official running for the presidency is a legal contender.

    McCain had to do this before the Senate. But Obama? His status is still in question by a significant portion of the population. If it is easy enough to clarify, then do it. It's not like total idiots have questioned his eligibility to be commander in chief. Some folks with a record of tremendous service to this nation have done so. In one case the court has acted queerly. Denying the defendant access to critical records.

    [Barney tells a joke. Everyone laughs, except Hannah]
    Hannah Stubbs: I see that it's funny. I have a sense of humor.
    Barney: Of course you have a sense of humor. Everyone thinks they do, even people who don't.

    Trust but verify, indeed.
    He's probably a citizen, I just think Hawaii could have done better than send out that lame computer produced certification of live birth. I mean where is the one from the early 1960's that would look like a Xerox copy?

    He did not 'have' to go through the Senate. They took it up on their own.

    I never understood the McCain debate. Was he not a military dependent born of US Citizens serving over seas under military orders? When I served I understood that children of US Service members born while the parent was under orders, were considered citizens automatically. The only possible exception might be if one parent was not a citizen, but I doubt that to be true.

    Well I think that is what they were talking about. Was his parents still there under orders, was he born on a base, was he a citizen of Panama.
