Of course Zack Jones is correct. Bobby Jindal could be a catalyst for some interesting legal battles, though I hope we don't reach that point. Obama, if he survives his first term, might face Jindal. From whom will the challenge to Jindal’s eligibility to come? There is no question that his parents were not citizens when he was born. The challenge to his eligibility will likely force a determination based upon original intent. If Jindal is declared ineligible, as he should be, then every bill, every appointment, every executive order by Obama is moot. That, in my opinion, is a blessing wrought by the genius of our founders. If Republicans are so corrupt as to offer another ineligible candidate they will, as they did with Obama, stay silent about eligibility. We need to watch them carefully and make it clear that their base will not tolerate continued corruption of our Constitution.

Every Republican senator signed Senate Resolution 511 in which “born of parents who are citizens” is the key argument, and place of nation of birth is barely mentioned; they were supporting the lie to the less informed that McCain was eligible. That the resolution (the third attempt by the Democratic Congress to insure that McCain, who received considerable Soros money, was their opponent) had no legal effect is irrelevant. It had the effect of calming the doubts of some who trust their representatives.

Because his father was serving in the "armies of the state", and that was the reason for his "outside the country" birth to two US citizens, he was and is indeed eligible. Zero, OTOH, was not born of "parents who are citizens". See "Law of Nations" Vol. I section 212 and section 217.
