Just as Obama finished his Hawaii trip to visit his ailing grandmother, the Hawaii Governor, Linda Lingle, has sealed Obama's birth certificate to keep this private information from the press. I do agree this is private information, but the circumstances here are different. He may be President and there is legitimate fear he may not be a natural born citizen. Obama does not have the proof needed to get a Missouri Driver's License, yet he may be elected President.
Ms. Lingle's announcement comes after Barrak Obama suddenly left the campaign trail in the closing days of the election to visit his grandmother, mind you he made this visit without his wife and kids. I believe that Obama travelled to Hawaii so that he could see the birth certificate himself. Following his examination, Lingle seals the document. Obama is only adding credibility to the claim.
