Now you know the flaw in our system. By virtue of his popularity with the unlettered masses, he is the POTUS designate, and as such does not have to undergo a background check. Nor does someone like Patrick Leahy who thought information heard at meeting of the Senate Intelligence committee made good cocktail party entertainment proving to his friends just how important he was. People died in that case, and many will in this one. The framers of the Constitution did not think a security clearance was necessary, and in their day it wasn’t, because they were men of honor. Some how, if we survive, we need to make a clearance a requirement for seeking public office. Obama would have been eliminated immediately based on his questionable associations.
