A Newsmax survey of key Obama aspects of Obama’s public and privatelife continued to be shielded from the public. Among the examples:
Obama has released just one brief document detailing his personalhealth. McCain, on the other hands, released what he said was hiscomplete medical file totaling more than 1500 pages.
