Bringing the passport is more important for those who don't have an ID that US
people would be familiar with. I'd say any photo ID from a US state's
department of motor vehicles is familiar enough, but not (for example) an ID
from one of the states within Germany, Mexico, or India. That's a few quick
thoughts of mine and shouldn't be taken as having too much authority; each
individual keysigner makes their own decisions about whether they've seen
sufficiently convincing ID to sign someone's key.
