Re: Tammy Duckworth for VP

The problem with that is that people nevertheless do not consider "citizenship from birth" synonymous with "natural born citizenship." Sane people still consider Tammy Duckworth and Ted Cruz to be US Citizens, but some of them might legitimately believe that they are ineligible to the presidency.

OK. But if someone wishes to challenge Cruz or Duckworth, they have to bring a case along the lines of "Yes I agree this person was a citizen on the day s/he was born, and has never lost their citizenship since, but I still contend that they do not fit the definition of "natural born citizen," despite the fact that this term isn't actually defined anywhere."

Nothing is certain, but I would that that person's chances of winning their argument are pretty slim.

So how many years is x? I forget and can't find it with a Google search.
