I don't think there is a naïve soul who still believes in transparency of a leader. It's even a part of their job to keep a lot of information classified, and give to the public just as much as they are supposed to know. Every one keeps a skeleton or two in their closet and they are all in the first place careerists who want your vote, so they are bound to tell you what you want to hear---most of it being a well tested cliché. Now, if Nixon, who was under care of a shrink could be "trusted" enough to send boys to Vietnam---why all the fuss these days about president's qualifications?

Well said, Tim. And as far as skeletons in the closet, some shouldn't make any difference, but there are other skeletons that should render a candidate obviously unfit. That discretion should be up to the voter.
Like lying everyone has skeletons. It is confusing at times of least for me as to what skeletons and lies should affect my vote especially knowing the other candidate's.
John, I don't like the idea of a public official holding dual citizenship. Most of the time it would be negligible, but there are times when an important official's loyalty could be called into question. Like right now in the U.S.
