    Can you name three world class American middle distance/distance runners who can never be President of the United States?

    You'd think that there would be more than that but KK is one.

              Off hand I can think of two more: Hints
              1) a place in Australia
              2) a bumblebee and a duck

              I think Shorter's okay . . . born in Munich, but father was M.D. in US Army.

                IF nominated I will not run, if elected I will need a lot of secret service protection from U and your KLAN friends.

                    Tvarish--good, you got the "place in Australia"--
                    SYDNEY Maree. I still think Frank could be prez, 'cause he was born (I believe) a US citizen.
                    That leaves the very famous "a bumblebee, and a duck".

                      Alberto Salazar can't run for President.

                      The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps.

                      Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in those gaps. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are "citizens of the United States at birth:"

                      Anyone born inside the United States
                      Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person's status as a citizen of the tribe
                      Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
                      Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
                      Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
                      Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
                      Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
                      A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.
                      Anyone falling into these categories is considered natural-born, and is eligible to run for President or Vice President. These provisions allow the children of military families to be considered natural-born, for example.

                        'Alberto Salazar can't run for President.'

                        Thank God! All we need is another Born-again-nut, who runs, in the White House. I'll take a Scotch drinking, poker playing heathen anytime!

                            The "bumblebee and duck" refers to Alberto. The duck part is easy--an Oregon runner. The bumblebee refers to a Bowerman comment on Salazar's style . . . Analyzing a bumblebee, one would conclude it shouldn't be able to fly, likewise, observing Alberto's running style, one might logically conclude he wouldn't make a good runner.
