Also a dual citizen can never be considered a natural born Citizen. The U.S. state department frowns upon dual citizenship.
I didn't notice this silliness until Kestrel quoted it.

Shilliam, the only thing you need to be a natural born U.S. citizen is to have been born in the U.S. (including territories, etc.) or, if you were born elsewhere, to have a parent who is a U.S. citizen. There is nothing in the law that says you can't also be the citizen of another country.

The State Department doesn't encourage dual citizenship, but it also doesn't disallow it. Just off the top of my head, I know at least three people who have dual citizenship, two in real life and one here.
