You thinking McCain wasn't eligible is a ignorant as those who doesn't think Obama is eligable.
McCain isnt a Natural Born American Citizen(SP?) . Yes he is an American citizen but he was born outside of the USA . McCain inherited his American Citizenship from his parents . So by the US Constitution he was never a eligible presidential candidate in the first place .

Note especially the first seven words. Natural born means to be born inside the country. And like it or not, Panama is not the United States any more than Guantanamo Bay is the United States. CONCLUSION. John McCain was NOT eligible to the office of president. Had he have won the election, and the Supreme Court found him ineligible to the office, then the walking around "I can see Russia" nincompoop Sarah Palin would have been sworn in as our president!

The US would have or has a certain degree of jurisdiction of its military bases but that isnt the same as sovereign soil.
