@Tickerguy: I prefer a far more strict requirement:

"No person shall run for, be nominated for, or serve as a US Representative, Senator, President, Vice-President, Cabinet Member or be employed in a position of direct policy-making authority within any federal agency or instrumentality, nor shall any person be eligible to ascend to the Presidency or Vice-Presidency, irrespective of whether by election or succession, unless at the time of one's birth both biological or legal mother and father were United States citizens and neither held either foreign citizenship or a right of permanent residency".

Yes.. I fully believe there should never be anyone in any of those offices who ever immigrated here. I get that 25-18=7, but that doesn't preclude any foreign national from immigrating here at 35, obtaining citizenship and then running for said office (sans VP or Pr). Maybe I'm being obtuse and I missed something, but I'm hard lined at no one from any other country should ever hold public office here; and I would go so far as to say: "Not one policy making position right down to the town or village". I've seen what happened to Ithaca NY.
