McCains Constitutional Dilemma: Native Son But Not Natural Born?<quoted text>
They would not need to impeach Obama. Once a court ruled he was an illegal candidate and that his election was a fraud. He..... and Biden would be gone.
Don't forget, they ran as a team. If one is an illegal candidate, their whole ticket is illegal!
And then either Speaker Bonehead would be president or the court could rule that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were the actual winners of the 2010 election!

John McCains possible election could trigger review under an obscure part of the Constitution: the birth eligibility provision of Article II. The requirement that an American be natural-born has long been controversial, but few associated John McCain with the problem as opposed to other leaders like Arnold Schwarzenegger. McCain, however, may be a foreign born citizen given his birth in the Canal Zone. Due to the bar on advisory opinions, this issue might not be ripe for review until after the general election, triggering another Bush v. Gore moment in the high court. Ted Olson has even been retained for the possible fight to complete the scene for a Supreme redux.
McCain was born in 1936 in the Panama Canal Zone while his father was stationed there as a naval officer. In 1787, however, the framers insisted that any president be natural born that is, born within the United States. It is a requirement that some of us have long criticized as counter to our tradition as a nation of immigrants
