Is McCain’s eligible to be president?

according to Think Progress If elected, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) would be the first president born outside the 50 states, a fact that is “reviving a musty debate” regarding the founders’ wishes that a “natural-born citizen” hold the nation’s highest office. The AP reports that lawsuits have now been filed in California and New Hampshire questioning his eligibility to be president:

[A] Nashua man has asked the federal court to rule that Sen. John McCain can’t be president because he was born in the Panama Canal Zone. […]

A lawyer in Riverside, Calif., filed a similar suit on March 6. That case asks only for a “declaratory judgment” on whether McCain would be eligible to serve as president if elected.
