I'm a natural-born American and I wondered the same thing.

This is what you get when the electorate chooses the "leader of the free
world" because "he seems like such a nice fellow" or "he's a regular guy"
Pardon me, but I don't want "a regular guy" in this particular position.  I
want the god damned smartest, most capable person we can find.

Hmmm...  If we're electing the "leader of the free world", maybe the entire
free world ought to be able to vote.  Imagine the primary season running up
to that election!
