The McCain solution to this is typical Republican legerdemain (sleight of hand): Wait for a complaint to be filed against the McCain candidacy at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Constitutional grounds, secure in knowledge that without a quorum the Commission will be unable to decide the issue before the Election in November, according a top official in McCain's presidential campaign:
Mr. McCain’s likely nomination as the Republican candidate for president and the happenstance of his birth in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 are reviving a musty debate that has surfaced periodically since the founders first set quill to parchment and declared that only a “natural-born citizen” can hold the nation’s highest office.
Almost since those words were written in 1787 with scant explanation, their precise meaning has been the stuff of confusion, law school review articles, whisper campaigns and civics class debates over whether only those delivered on American soil can be truly natural born. To date, no American to take the presidential oath has had an official birthplace outside the 50 states.
( . . . )Mr. McCain was born on a military installation in the Canal Zone, where his mother and father, a Navy officer, were stationed. New York Times, February 28, 2008
If they don't fully staff the FEC, it could take a long time [to resolve a complaint about an arguably unconstitutional candidacy for the presidency.] Douglas Holz-Eakin, "de facto policy director", McCain for President, reported in National Journal, February 29, 2008.
