It would make an interesting Constitutional case. I doubt such a person could be elected if the public knew that the candidate held dual citizenship.

There is some speculation that Obama by virtue of his father, a British subject, obtained a British passport. No proof however.

Obama likely retains rights to be a British National due to his legal father status in 1961. Like some who have posted in this thread he could be a British Overseas National by simply applying. He would not have lost this capability when Kenya became independent - contrary to some reports.

To formally renounce the claim or ability to claim a filing of the British form RN is needed in writing and in front of a British official.
