I have a question about Senator Barack Hussein Obama: Mr. Obama was born in 1961, and was therefore required to register for Selective Service (”the Draft”) under the law. Does anyone know if he registered? Bet the media won’t dig too deep into that one like they did President Bush’s time in the Texas Air National Guard!

I'm hoping a member of the Fourth Estate would know how to get that information.

"Selective Service registration is required to be eligible for a federal student loan, job training, most federal jobs, and U.S. citizenship."

Remarks of Senator Barack Obama Commencement Address Saturday, June 4, 2005 — Good morning President Taylor, Board of Trustees, faculty, parents, family, friends, the community of Galesburg, the class of 1955—which I understand was out partying last night, and yet still showed up here on time—and most of all, the Class of 2005. Congratulations on your graduation, and thank you for the honor of allowing me to be a part of it. Thank you also, Mr. President, for this honorary degree. It was only a couple of years ago that I stopped paying my student loans in law school.

2ndDivisionVet has a good idea. Obama had stated that he had student loans.
