Prerequisites to the presidency *UPDATED*

Obama refuses to release his birth certificate. I’m with the Campaign Spot in believing that it shows nothing more than some embarrassment about the fact that his birth name was a Motown sounding Barry, rather than the hip, foreign sounding Barack.

Be that as it may, given that a prerequisite for the Presidency is a “natural born citizen,” it’s worth asking this question: When the citizens ask for it, on what possible basis can Obama refuse to make a copy of his birth certificate available?

UPDATE:  Please see comment no. 1 to this post, in which suek introduces some fascinating information.   Wouldn’t it be interesting if Obama was disqualified from the race for failing to meet the most basic prerequisite for the American presidency?
