Most law professors and lawyers feel that John McCain is not ineligible to be president 1) both parents were US Citizens 2) they were deployed on orders from the military, and 3) the canal zone was a special distrcit.

The question comes down to the undifiend "Natural Born".

Military or not, offspring of US citizens are in fact citizens of the US. Neither official deployment or US territory requirements are of any matter. Whether or not the elder Mrs. McCain had a Cesarean delivery is a moot point.

Anyone that tries to use the CZ birth as a loophole should just be taken out and shot. It is a weak argument for someone born into a military family.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Not ever ours. We rented under a 99 year lease, IIRC.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
