      Not the CIA, FBI, Supreme Court or corporations.

        should be entirely irrelevant to you, as should Obama's have been in 2008.

        It doesn't matter one whit whether a candidate can see them now. Once the candidate is the President (I'd hazard a guess that it's actually once the candidate becomes the President Elect, but I don't know for certain) the candidate has clearance for literally every single classified anything.
