America's voters are darn foolish in skipping testing Sen. Obama first on his job of governor of Illinois !

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

This is the only prudent thing to do if the voting public are for fairness, justice and security at home.
Unlike Sen. McCain and Sen. Clinton, the man is still very young, and ought to be willing to spend his energies while improving his own State first, before setting his sights on the world. Why would such a young person declare from the outset to never run again if his first and only presidential bid is lost ? No contender before said anything like that to the voting public in America.
And this was said without any explanation.
Ask him to try and run for the governor of his own State first and watch his performance.
