As the Supreme Court discusses arguments related to President Obama's
eligibility, it may be instructive to note a recent best-seller
investigated the issue in question, finding Obama may not fit the
constitutional requirement that stipulates only "natural born" citizens
can serve as U.S. president.

The Supreme Court conferred yesterday on whether arguments should be heard

Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution stipulates
presidential eligibility, requiring the nation's elected chief to be a
"natural born citizen."
