Here is an interesting CNN piece on the eligibility of Ted Cruz for the Presidency. Cruz was born in Canada; his mother was born in Delaware. Is he a "natural born citizen" under the U.S. Constitution? For differing opinions, compare here and here.
Recall that that there was some academic disagreement about whether John McCain, born in the Panama Canal Zone, was eligible to be President. The issue never got traction with the American public, however.
