    That would seem the case. If he wins this one, he may be more effective these next 3-4 years than he was able to be these last two, just because he will not be as accountable in 2018 for things done 5-6 years prior.

    There's still a long way to go before November. This flap will blow over and I think Warren will win.

    Even if she doesn't, it looks like the Teabaggers may hand the Dems another seat by knocking out Lugar in Indiana.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    So basically, if she fits the Cherokee nation's criteria, she is well within her rights to claim to be a Native American.
    It's 1/16th for Eastern Cherokee.

    Lugar is pretty much an Obama slurped like Snowblow and collins in Maine. I don't think Indiana is going to vote for a dem in this fall's election

    Lugar is a moderate conservative -- a dying breed -- and one of the few who can actually be reasonable on occasion. So of course he must go! We can't have legislators who are more concerned with serving their country than they are with adhering to a partisan check list. That will never do!

    LOL that would be like 100 years from now someone claiming to be the decedent of holocaust survivors finding out that they were the great great great grandson of Heinrich Himmler
