    He wasn't born in kenya but even if he was he would still be allowed to be president. He was NATURAL born citizen because of his mom. Just like george romney and john mccain were allowed to run even though they were not born in america.

    Thomas and Kagan should both recuse themselves.

    If Kagan does, then Thomas should. Or if Thomas does, then Kagan should. Both have interests in the case, but as it stands now, their votes cancel themselves out.

    Not necessarily. One of them might actually be able to remain impartial while the other is not capable of doing so. If that is the case. Because of that, and the fact the impartiality of both of them in this case can quite reasonably be questioned, they should recuse themselves.

    The key here is that for both of them, the questioning of their impartiality in this case is not unreasonable in any way, shape, or form.

    because with her the vote may be 5-4 in favor of it?

    Clarence Thomas worked under the Obama Administration and had a hand in crafting support for Obama Care?

    Re: Should Kagan recuse herself from the BOCare case?

    I am kind of torn, especially on the Clarence Thomas issue. What does it matter what his wife thinks? And quite frankly, believe it or not, they are all human so they all have their biases about these cases. Being a good judge is about putting those biases aside and coming to the right conclusion. So, in my opinion, both of them should be able to preside over this ruling.
