He holds dual US/Turkey citizenship and talks of running for the U.S. Senate.

As an American with dual citizenship, I find the notion that it is disqualifying offensive. By this logic, all immigrants are suspect and should not hold higher office. When people immigrate to the U.S. they keep their foreign citizenship--the American government does not require people to hand over their foreign passport.

I'm not saying it wouldn't be an effective political attack against him, especially within the current nativist GOP.

But, of all the things disqualifying about Dr. Oz--primarily being a total charlatan--dual citizenship should be pretty low on the list.
