Boris Johnson for president?

The colorfully eccentric conservative Boris Johnson beat out the incumbent Marxist “Red Ken” Livingstone as mayor of London, part of an overwhelming Tory victory over Labour (sic) in England’s off-year elections. According to this article, How Boris Johnson finally grew up to grasp his shot at redemption – Times Online , Mayor-elect Johnson’s lifelong ambition was to be elected President of the United States. He was born in New York, so he could actually qualify under the constitution as being “natural born.”

Unlike, maybe, John McCain!

    I too am an American by parentage and not geography. Both of my parents are US citizens, but my birth certificate is German. I have a State Department form recognizing me as an American Citizen born abroad.

    I was told, and believed, that I could never be President because I was not natural born. I guess we need to discus what the meaning of “natural” is. Think of the postmodern complications that could be introduced. “Natural” or Artificial insemination? “Natural” delivery or C-section delivery?
