What Ailments is Barack Obama Hiding?

When John McCain released his medical records, he put a bunch of reporters in a room with thousands of pages of documents for hours on end, let them pore over the records, but did not actually give them copies.
The left went nuts.
The Huffington Post has previously speculated that something must be hidden because of McCain's delay in release.
Yet, Barack Obama has not released his records.
In a one-page letter released by the campaign, Obama's longtime physician, Chicago internist Dr. David L. Scheiner, said he was summarizing 21 years of medical records, during which the Democrat suffered only minor problems such as upper respiratory infections.
I thought Obama was open to transparency. I thought he was an open government guy.
What's in the records that he thinks must be hidden?
It's probably nothing, but why not reveal them. The Obama camp is pushing the story on Cindy McCain's tax records. She's not even a candidate. But the Democratic candidate for President of the United States won't release his medical records.
I know he takes the whole JFK comparison seriously, but come on -- we know now JFK actually had a serious medical condition he wanted to hide.
What, if anything, is Obama hiding, other than his real contempt for open, honest, and full disclosures?
