188. Supposedly (and probably). McCain was born on a U.S. base in Panama to two U.S.
citizens. Atlhough the SCOTUS has not ruled on that precise issue, I do believe it would rule that he is "a natural born citizen" for purposes of qualifying for the Presidency under Section 1 of Article II of the Constitution. However, I don't think that McCain and qualification for the Presidency has much to do with Sotomayor or qualifying for the SCOTUS. I don't think the CCOTUS even requires judges to be citizens, let alone "natural born" citizens.
