Is there concern over her religion ..... is there concern that she is placing Rahul in leadership positions preping him to follow with the Gandhi name in India's politics ..... as Rajiv's widow ... or as you say simply as a "foreign born".

    Since she is the 12th most powerful person and the 6th most powerful women in the world I would think that the powers that be have already made this decision and that no doubts remain in her political future.

    However I also agree what @Krisztian said below.......
