What do you guys think about the amendment to the constitution for allowing a naturalized citizen to become the president?

I think it's a great idea. This country is founded on immigration. We're taught in school that anybody can come to this country and become whatever they want through hard work.

Unless you want to run for the White House. That doesn't make much sense.

That said, the fact that they are doing it for one person is disappointing. The idea should be good or bad based upon it's own merits; not on who it might immediately benefit. So the "Ammend for Arnold" mantra is a bit silly.
