Should Barack Obama run for president of Kenya?

Since February of 2008, Kenya has been led by a coalition government with power shared by two rulers brokered in a United Nations settlement. The country is in desperate need of change and the people need hope.

Given that Barack Obama is recognized as a citizen of Kenya as he is the son a Kenyan citizen, he is eligible to run for office. He would easily win an election, as he is very popular.

Do you think Barack Obama should suspend his US presidential election bid, return to the land of his father and run for president?

Update:

Who qualifies to apply for Kenyan citizenship?

1. Commonwealth citizens who have been lawfully and legally resident in Kenya for a minimum period (and continuous) of five years preceding their date of application.

2. Citizens from non- commonwealth countries who have been lawfully and legally resident in the country for a continuous period of seven years preceding the date of application.

3. Wives and children of Kenyan citizens.

    My guess wuld be no due to the fact that hes american so im not sure about the laws there but if there anything like we have here they wuldnt let him despite him being recognized by the americans as a citizen and even if he did he wuld no longer be allowed to run here cos he wuld be considered a kenyan citizen

    No, because even assuming that he meets those requirements, he does not know enough about the country in order to make a realistic bid for the presidency.

    Do you think they would want him.After he left here and the press backed off covering him the people would see other than talking he`s a empty shell. The press has made obama without them he`s nothing.

    No. He is an American, not a Kenyan.

    Why aren't you asking whether McCain should be running for president of Scotland?

    EDIT: "Muffin" is so confused that he is answering and obviously racist anti-Obama question by calling Obama a racist.

    Senator Obama is going to be a wonderful President of the United States and he is exactly what this country needs right now. No amount of negative nasty attacks is going to change that. He will be President.

    He would probably be a better fit there. And he would actually have a chance of winning maybe...
