oui on peut

There’s an active campaign to encourage Barack Obama to stand in France’s up-coming, contentious election that’s garnered an impressive amount of support, considering that Obama, not being a French citizen, could not actually be appointed to high-office. I recall after Bill Clinton left the White House, there was the same suggestion, although in that case, it was a bit more within the realm of possibility. Being a native of Arkansas, one of the territorial gains of the US from the Louisiana Purchase, Clinton could have actually run and serve if elected, as can citizens of former colonies—and no, Kenya was under the yoke of Imperial German and Britain.
