E-mail: Can Obama be President?
http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/citizen.asp

Barack Obama does not qualify as a natural-born citizen of the U.S. because his mother was too young.

False.

1. Judge rejects...bid to have Obama removed from ballot
http://www.philly.com/philly/hp/news_update/20081025_Ju...

A federal judge in Philadelphia last night threw out a complaint by a Montgomery County lawyer who claimed that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was not qualified to be president and that his name should be removed from the Nov. 4 ballot.

Philip J. Berg alleged in a complaint filed in federal district court on Aug. 21 against Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission, that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya.

...Obama and the Democratic National Committee had asked Surrick to dismiss Berg's complaint in a court filing on Sept. 24.

They said that Berg's claims were "ridiculous" and "patently false," that Berg had "no standing" to challenge the qualifications of a candidate for president because he had not shown the requisite harm to himself.

Surrick agreed.
