I'm beginning to think that people don't read the responses to their posts. If you look above on this page, you'll see the link I posted, AND the section that deals SPECIFICALLY with the CANAL ZONE. I'll post it again:

8 USC 1403 handles the Zone specifically, stating that anyone born in the Zone on or after 2/26/1904, to at least one citizen-parent, is a natural-born citizen. Similar law is in place to handle the acquisition of territories, such as Puerto Rico, Alaska, and Hawaii."

What does it say about our society that no one is talking about this when it is clearly a subject that could destroy his run for the nomination.

My feeling is the Democrats are saving this for the General Election. Something like this could be pulled out the day before the general election vote to destroy the chances of the Republican party from getting the White House.

What does his place of birth have anything to do with it at all ???

His father was a brilliant and respected Navy Admiral. John Mc Cain himself is a respected and honored American Hero. Being born in Panama or even Nazi Germany wont change the fact that he is a true American and I dont think anybody in Washington, Republican or democrat can question his credentials as an American.

How is he a 'hero' and what's to be honored & respected about a failed navy officer that was shot down and captured?

If you need more proof that he may not be a hero, check this out:

It alleges collaboration of McCain with North Vietnamese captors. Judge for yourself.

That's what I'm saying. This man comes from a long line of elitist warmongers and will finish the job that Bu$h started to ruin this country.

Democracy Now did a good piece on McCain

The there is The Real McCain

I know, I'm agreeing with you. The worst part is that it doesn't really matter which of the remaining candidates win. They are all carbon copies of each other on all substantive issues. First of all, none of them will get out of Iraq, believe me. Hillary has been a supporter of the war with almost all of her votes (sure she now says she'll get all troops out in 60 days- bleieve that, I've got more bridges to sell you), Obama wants to bomb Pakistan(so he exchanges one war for another), we know McCain wants to be there ad infinitum, and Huckabee is all for the war. All of them talk about health care, but they're in the Senate now(3 of them), and they wouldn't even TOUCH it up until now, and the list goes on...
It's four (or eight) more years of the same garbage- promises before the election, then nothing positive after they're in office.

My understanding is that John McCain holds dual citizenship by birth and acquired citizenship through his parents: Panama and USA.

Can someone who holds dual citizenship be president of the USA?

If so, when John McCain wins, he will be the first Panamanian president of the USA.....

Can someone clarify this to me?

Here is a new article by a mainstream source that is also questioning his eligibility.

"There are powerful arguments that Senator McCain or anyone else in this position is constitutionally qualified, but there is certainly no precedent," said Sarah Duggin, an associate professor of law at Catholic University who has studied the issue extensively. "It is not a slam-dunk situation."

You would do well to remember the "long line of elitist warmongers" who have fought and died to protect this country and your right to say such things.

I suppose you don't think there are any American heroes anymore or would you care to name someone. Let me guess, John Kerry??
