Re: McCain may not be eligible to run

He'll set the precedent for people born outside of the U.S. on U.S. military bases. He'll get the nomination and be eligible. This is just the far left and rights far fetched hope that it will knock him off.

Even if your born overseas, to two Americans, in the eyes of the law you're still a natural citizen. If your American parents had been tourists in France, for instance, you'd still be a natural citizen. The Supreme Court will never declare him inelegible for that.

Re: McCain may not be eligible to run

Military bases are extensions of US soil...they have no ground for the claim. Not to mention, the born to 2 US citizens part, and the fact that they were not residents of panama but instead were US citizens stationed...by the US government...in panama.

Yeah, grasping at straws explains it very well.

Re: McCain may not be eligible to run

I have experienced this argument personally...I was born in Nuremburg, Germany on an Army Base...Not that I am into politics or have any desire to become president, I have had this argument with people before...

Even though there is no "set precedent" to determine whether or not someone born overseas as a "military brat" is or is not a "natural citizen" as far as presidency goes, it would be completely and utterly foolish for our judicial system to declare McCain ineligible because of it...The reason being that if they were to decide that he cannot become president because he was born on a military base outside the main 50 states, it would basically be saying that "Someone who was born on a military base/hospital outside of the main 50 states is less of an American than someone who was born in the 50 states"...and I, personally, would take great offense to that as I am just as much an American as anyone else in this country...Implying that I or anyone else who are born to parents that dedicated their lives to serving this country are less of an american citizen than anyone else would be complete and utter blasphemy...And I do believe that that would be a precdent that no judge on this earth would want to set...You would essentially be segregating Americans into groups of "Pure-breads", "Half-Breads", etc...And that is a type of segregation that goes against everything that this country was founded on....
