    Simple bill would not do. An amendment will be necessary.

    I think it will never happen.

    Fergit it. Can you imagine some foreign country bankrolling a candidate who happens to be one of their ex-nationals?

    Can't they bankroll a candidate who is a U.S. national?

    :D

    There's quite a few immigrants that know more about the Constitution and American values than some U.S. presidents and politicians ( *cough*Clinton*cough*)

    I don't think it's necessarily a bad idea. A citizen is a citizen after all. In fact, a naturalized citizen has to take an oath whereas those who are born citizens don't. Also, the intense scrutiny Presidential candidates draw would certainly expose any possible loyalty uncertainties that may arise.

    Considering just about every person in the United States is descended from immigrants, it does make sense to allow a naturalized citizen to become President. Wouldn't that be the ultimate realization of the American dream?

    Do I think it will pass though? Nope.
