The truth is there are no requirements to 'run' for president.
The electoral college determines elligibility of candidates based solely on the number of votes recieved for each candidate.
Anyone can be on the ballot if they get enough signatures.
So what Obama's Lawyer said in the recent trial was true if Mickey Mouse could get enough signatures he could be on the ballot. Then if he got enough votes he could be made president; because under the current system it is each voters responsibility to check the credentials of a candidate and vote accordingly.
This is why several states are moving to require a candidate prove elligibility before being placed on the ballot.
