(CNN) - Barack Obama is in "excellent health," the Illinois senator's doctor said in a letter summarizing the presidential candidate's medical history.
Obama's campaign released the letter to the press Thursday.

No lingering side effects from his days as a user?
I would love to smoke a Pall Mall and chat with ya sometime.
Great! Don't go to Iraq though, Hillary has arranged for a sniper over there.
Thats great but know that Obama had nothing to do with Florida choosing not to do a revote. They made that decision on their own. As for Michigan, their proposal for a revote was not acceptable. They were not going to allow registered republicans, and independents to take part in the revote, as well as any dems that voted in the republican primary (due to being told the Dem one didnt count). They changed their stance on who could revote, from the original rules used in January. This is why Obama did not agree to it, as he should not have. If they were going to have a revote, they should have used the same rules as in January. There are many of us independents that would vote for Obama.
...as opposed to John McBush McCain who has over 1,000 pages of medical records and looks older and more worn out each time you see him.
I am glad that all his drug abuse in college (when he was "trying to find himself") did not damage him. :-)
Just because you are in good health, doesn't fully qualify a person to be the leader of the most powerful country on earth. Sen Obama is honestly not ready to take on this position. Sure hes a great talker. But has no substance yet. He has not talked much about the real issues.
Talking loud and saying nothing as yet. Sure I'm a Dem but between the two Hillary is the bests choise at the present
of course he is in excellent health
but we would like to see hillbilly's mental health records,
I agree – Healthy body, mind, and definitely Heart – it shows.
Go Obama '08
oviously he is not old and lost memo as M so what do you expected?
Why do they not release ALL of his medical records?
Didn't enveryone demand to see the actual paper files on McCain?
Why are we settling for a physicians SUMMARY letter?
What is Obama hiding?
Please don't come to Iraq because Clintons thinks some thing bad will probable happen in June. Please, please don't leave America before you become president.
The doctors reported that he has a recurring abscess on his buttock which should start clearing up June 3.
Glad to see Barack is in "excellent" health... but watch out for the EVIL EMPIRE..... they are ruthless.....and you know the old saying.... hold your friends close but hold your enemies even closer.....
Be Safe President Obama........... 2008
What is this obseeion that the public has with the physicals of candidates. A Dr. can Not see the future. No one can Guarantee that a person will be around a cetian number of years. Obama could have an accident or a heart attack in the next few years. There are medical conditions that do not give warning signs. Why do you think that some apparently healthy peole "just drop dead"? McCain is older but he may be mentally bright and around for the next 20 years.
The Quality of the candidates is more important. Our systom has set up a line of succession.
One of the reasons that FL has such a bad name is the amount of stupid people who migrate here to stir up the pile. I am from FL and for good or bad we screwed up and went against the rules and now like the winch of politics, you believe that they should be changed. "If i can't play, i'm going to take my ball and go home" I've got grandkids 2 & 6 and they are smarter than 60% of the Democrats in this state, and they both act better than the Clinton's. Hey stupid vote for McCain if Hillary can't win. You idiots deserve what you get. I deserted that dumb woman months ago.
Kind of him to release his "medical records"...not.
I suppose if his doctor has the same credibility as his minister–we may have some reason for concern.
Nancy Pelosi is the Katherine Harris of this election. She will abuse her power to impede the natural course of the election process. this will end her political career, just like it did for Harris. Pelosi's bias against Clinton has been appearent for months and she will be the spoiler...
You know some of you bloggers are really mean and hateful. Obama is not my choice for the nominee, but I feel no ill will towards him. Great that he is in good health.
Madam President – HILLARY "08"
When it comes down to running a clean election, Florida is the worst.
The first question would be, who pays for the election ?Second question, who has the money to pay for another election? Question three, the old addage, you get what you pay for, is it still reliable?
Mr. Obama is mentally, physically in good health and he is a good man. His pleasant and truthful smile explains he is pure.
Just watch the evil smile of Hillary and decide if you really want her near the white house..... Infact McCain and Bush can smile better than Hillary.
OBAMA / AL GORE 2008
Apparently since Florida can't have their voters voices heard at the Democratic Convention then they should all vote Republican in the General Election. See how the Democratic Party likes that. I am a registered Democrat & will change parties if my states votes can not be counted.
He looks too skinny for me.
Maybe he needs to start more waffles.
Plus he has more gray hair now than 15 months ago.
By the time the campaign is over, he will look like a very old men.
On the other hand, Hillary is 60 and still looks sexy and seems like she getting prettier.
We need a good looking president for all the cameras around the world.
It is great to hear that Barack Obama is in great health and now the country can move forward in trying to get him elected this Fall.
He may be in good physical health, but where is his mental
