Actually, just to make things perfectly clear to everyone, Senate Resolution 511 was written and passed. S. Res 511:

Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a "natural born Citizen" of the United States;

Whereas the term "natural born Citizen", as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country's President;

Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the "natural born Citizen" clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress's own statute defining the term "natural born Citizen";

Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;

Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and

Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a "natural born Citizen" under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.

"...the bill was written and submitted by Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO), and co sponsored by both Democratic presidential candidates, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)."

McCain is a US Citizen because Obama says that he is....

I've always heard that children born to active duty personnel serving out of the country were considered "natural born citizens". Is that not true? Or does it only count if the birth happened on a military base? Are military bases located outside the U.S. considered "U.S. soil" or does that only count for ships? (And is it even really true for ships or just something I heard on NCIS?)

It goes right along with likening the Obama administration to the Nazi's, and Obama in particular, to Hitler. It is plainly ludicrous to make such a comparison.
I asked someone who was comparing President Obama to Hitler how that worked, and apparently for him there is a liberal-conservative line which somehow ends up with Fascism being uber liberal right along with Stalinist Communism. Stalin and Hitler??? Blazing liberals....somehow.

Yep Senator McCain was born in the Canal Zone, land we (the US, not BFP) appropriated from Columbia.

geeezzzzzzzzzzz people..........where is your logic and practical reasoning..........
Cause the news people sure can't find Hawaii on a map, they have it off Ecuador in what I thought were the Galapagos. Is it possible Hawaii can be moved like the Island on Lost? and if so, how would the Constitution apply?

and

I was flipping through the Constitution this morning looking for the part where it is required that the President don scuba gear and fix any offshore oil leaks....is it maybe a part of the Mayflower Compact and not the Constitution? and if so, would it be Constitutional to expect such?

How about this political myth: re-writing your campaign website to appear more moderate midway through the campaign will help hid your tinfoil hat... NOT!

Children born out of country to Military personel actually have dual citizenship. At the age of 18 they can choose which country they want.

That happens for any child of US parents born out of the US (ei. missionaries, business people, baby stealers), but would this affect being able to be electable as President?

As I understand it, the Canal Zone as well as Guam, Puerto Rico and other us "protectorates" (colonies) are considered US soil. I think US bases are too. Now a baby dropped at JFK Airport before the border while in line to go through Immigration? not so sure. I mean it could happen...right? I think we should clarify!

In other news, skindiving as a Presidential requirement is not in the King James version of the bible either....I am still searching.

And, no new on the possibility that Jesus was a Gummy, though I do have photos taken recently in the British Museum that prove that the Flying Spaghetti Monster predates Christ. Not sure how this affects "One Nation Under God" but wanted to keep you all in the loop.

Has she perhaps been "born again" as an Evangelical Texan?

Ohhh, I missed the ships part, interesting since most if not all US owned Cruise Ships are actually registered out of the Bahamas or Liberia to circumvent US laws (pun intended).

Maybe they carry a small box of Good o'le USA dirt for birthing opportunities? or do just US Military vessels count?

I found this interesting in many ways. First, they don't have to choose, you can keep dual citizenship. My entire family has dual citizenship.

What needs to be clarified is that any child born to a US Citizen, no mater where, has a right to citizenship, all that has to be done is the paperwork.

To be able to become a US President though, you HAVE to be born in US soil or soil considered to be US. A great example and one that baffles me since the Birthers don't seem to go all up in arms about it (maybe because he is white?) is that John McCain was born in the US Canal Zone in Panama, so he is considered to have been born in US soil. If anyone's birth place had to be questioned to be eligible for the Presidency is his.

It's funny that some politicians behave as if this is still 1967. Back then, you could say something foolish and unless the local or national media was on hand to catch it, it would disappear into the memory hole within 48 hours. They seem to not get it that YouTube is forever, and the crap you said back in 2007 is still on the Internet somewhere. The changing of websites is just hilarious as if people can't take screenshots of your web site. It is just hilarious to me.

Cheers
