71. Well,
As much as I think McCain was nearly as much of a fraud as Obama (and I voted for neither), I would be willing to concede that being born to at least one American parent on a military base, and further conceding that an American military base is American soil, he was qualified. But if someone simply told me that McCain was born overseas and therefore ineligible, I would demand the proof that he is eligible.

And by "at the time of his birth" I was talking about his eligibility to be considered a "natural born citizen of the United States," not being eligible to become president, of course. I believe that age is 36, but I could be mistaken.
