    It's such a non-issue that it's receiving no media coverage at all. No, wait--it is.

    How many Cherokee are upset? A half dozen or more?

    She never listed herself as a minority when she went to school. This is a NON issue.
    The certifying authority are the tribes themselves. If they accept you - you are. And anyone making the claim on a official federal or state application should be required to have proof.

    The university she attended was under fire by the feds for the dearth of minority (especially native american) applicants/students. Elizabeth's fiction helped to allow them to show the feds they were good on that front.

    Go to their website and ask them. More telling is how readily mindless hacks ignore their concerns in blind defense of party. Not shocking...considering that party is ALL that matters to them. But telling nonetheless.

    Heres the proverbial 'bone' I'll toss out there...the fact is this SHOULDNT be an issue. It should have been one and done a long time ago. I am always amazed at how foolishly politicians handle 'scandals'. Warren should have come out IMMEDIATELY and said..."wow...hey...totally my bad. When I did it I did so because I truly believed it is part of my ancestry. I see that people are upset and very much understand why they are upset. Please know I meant NO harm or disrespect and accept full responsibility and I appeal to YOUR rich heritage and traditions of forgiveness. Thank you." She should have offered a face to face meeting, came out holding hands...done and done.

    Then every time it was brought up again she should have agreed with the person. Yes...I know...that was a mistake. Very much apologize. Now...about the campaign....

    Politicians tend to do make things worse. Clinton did it. Edwards did it. Romney is doing it with his ever changing positions.

    Oh look, you googled up a book you didn't read as evidence that you know some history.

    He was an opportunist, just like Jackson and of course no one is going to punish an officer who led his troops to victory. Jackson wanted to earn political clout by going to battle. He was an opportunist too. Wilkinson knew this and told him not to go to New Orleans. Most likely so that he wouldn't get out-shined by Jackson politically.

    Treasonist spy though huh? That's why he was jailed and executed right? Oh wait... that didn't happen.

    come on vance. This **** was decades old crap dug up out of nowhere to feign outrage today by a particular party. She has a thin line of heritage and somehow this is some form of a scandal? Not only that, it's such a horrible scandal that it supplants policy discussion in the race?

    Well if it comes out that she was wrong I totally agree. People are talking about this like it's done and matter of fact and all the evidence is on the table and she was wrong. I've not read anywhere that this is the case.

    I've yet to see what was done wrong... but I agree that the cover-up usually is worse than the offense when it comes to politicians.
