It seems that the Obama campaign has a long history of hiding everything that may be questionable in nature. The National Review article below lends more support to Larry Sinclair’s allegations that he and Sen. Obama engaged in the illegal use of cocaine and engaged in gay sex in 1999. Surprise, Sen. Obama evidently has no records of his whereabouts on the days in question regarding his alleged involvement with Mr. Sinclair. It seems to me that any potential President of the United States would want to put an issue like this to bed. Will leaders in the Middle East be able to keep a straight face when setting at the negotiating table with Sen. Obama?
The chorus of a Leonard Cohen song comes to mind:

No Paperwork For Obama Grants From 1997 To 2000
From the Chicago Sun-Times article on grants distributed by then-state-legislator Barack Obama.
(Records from 1997 to 2000 weren’t available.)
There’s a shock.
His state legislative office records may have been thrown out, he told us.
He’s never released a specific list of law clients, instead giving a list of all of his firm’s clients, numbering several hundred each year. His campaign will only confirm representation when the media comes to them with a specific case.
He won’t release his application to the state bar. He’s never released any legal or billing records to verify that he only did a few hours of work for a nonprofit tied to Tony Rezko.
He’s never released any medical records, just a one-page letter from his doctor.
Does it bother anyone that a guy with political ambitions for his entire adult life has not left a paper trail?
