More then just a non-binding resolution, SR511 defined John McCains eligibility based on being born of US Parents [NOTE the plural] but outside the country. Therefore the only alternative based on THEIR wording is born in country. They did not change the requirement of two (2) US parents.
U.S. law at the time of Obama's birth didn't require both parents to be U.S. citizens. In the case of a U.S.C. mother foreign father, at that time there was a minimum residency requirement which his mother appears to meet. The only question I had was that it required 5 years after the 14th birthday, and I don't think Mom made it that long before Obama was born.

You are totally wrong but someone will be along to point that out any minute.
