As for the Security Clearance, its kind of a ridiculous assertion. Do you really believe that a Senator and a president elect won't get clearance because of his "ties?" Do you have any idea what sort of people Bush Jr and Sr, as well as McCain bumped elbows with? And look - Im not condemning them for it. I think in politics it is sometimes necessary to get your hands dirty with some unsavory characters - there are just too many to avoid them.

If you dont believe me google Gordon Liddy. Or Bush's ties to Saudi Arabia.

You may disagree with Senator Obama's policies; perhaps you may even be correct to do so; however, to question the Senator's nationality, religion, birthplace, etc... It's a bit silly and comes off as reactionary to the fact that he is part African and has a different name.
