Obama’s Sect. of State Unconstitutional? (and more)

According to Article 1, Section 6 of the Constitution, yes it is. It states, “No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under the authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time.” Which, for your information, actually happened during Bush Jr.’s second term as President, and Hillary Clinton has been a Senator since 2001. So, in fact, Obama made a misstep and Hillary, although popular, will more than likely stir up some controversy. I believe she will be Sect. of State, however certain Republicans will fight it to the death.

The source of this can be found here.

In other news today, CNN’s Situation Room brought up Obama’s citizenship today, because apparently the Supreme Court might take an interest in it. Is he or is he not an American? Yes, the answer is yes, however some for what ever reason believe otherwise. Have doubts? Go here and discover more.
