Was she not born a citizen? I think the foreign born law applies to those as a non-citizen doesn't it?

IF Honeychile is born to her american Parents while oversease, Honeychile can still be president right?

As I said before, I had the same problem when Sen. John Heinz was interested in the White House.

James, have you forgotten the much touted "Two for the price of one!" campaign?

I'm a democrat (I know, you're shocked!) but I voted for a republican candidate for Illinois governor once -- George Ryan instead of the democratic candidate Glen Poshard. I don't remember the exact reason, but I do recall thinking that Poshard was more conservative than Ryan, especially concerning gun control and abortion. Of course I think what George Ryan did with the death penalty was wonderful, so I'm happy I voted for him.

No Arnold has no power to change something like that. Another politician introduced it an Arnold said he thinks he'd support it.

If Laura Bush was born in another country would some of you still have a problem of her being first lady?

LOL, it would be easy for people to say "Yes! I'd still have a problem!" since it's not the case.

If the Republicans ever became those things, I'd be a Democrat then, or if Hillary converted, I might leave.

I think that's right. As I recall, if you have at least one American parent, no matter where you're born, you are an Ameican citizen with all of the rights of any American.

I don't see the big deal about a First Lady who was born outside of the United States.

Boy, oh boy am I with you on that one!
(We WILL see Hillary...and sooner than we want. God help us.)

I might convert if the Dems quit supporting issues, that for me, are morally repugnant.

Honestly, if the Dems were more toward the center, I could easily change if I was unimpressed with the Republican candidate or the Republicans quit helping those that REALLY need help!

If her parents had been American, yes, she would enjoy dual citizenship. But since they weren't, she was born a citizen of Mozambique.

She is a naturalized American.

Yes. I'm not sure how many times I have to say this, but I have a problem with the FIRST LADY of the UNITED STATES not being born IN the United States.

You are free to call me narrow or inflexible about this, but that's how I feel. This was a HUGE thing in PA when John Heinz first ran for Senator (my parents were on his campaign), and it was a HUGE hurdle that only his being a Heinz was able to overcome!

You know honeychile, I never gave this much thought-never HAD to. But if I lean one way, I have to agree with you. I'm a bit of an isolationist...I'm damn PROUD to be American. I want my First Lady to be an American too!

The first lady represents all of us in matters that don't grab headlines everytime, but the role is as much or as little as "she" wants it to be. They don't come up with cliche's without reason and the "Power behind the throne" has to come from somewhere.
Many a corporate wife would support this statement.

My dad was born in Lithuania but he is just as much of an American as you or I am.
