    Cherokee Nation citizenship does not require a specific blood quantum. It does require that you have at least one direct Cherokee ancestor listed on the Dawes Final Rolls, a federal census of those living in the Cherokee Nation that was used to allot Cherokee land to individual citizens in preparation for Oklahoma statehood.
    Interestingly enough our POTUS is half white and he is not considered Caucasian. If he entered that he was ethnically white, would folks have an issue with it

    That's the relevant part. At the point she does, it becomes an issue.

    I would considering he checked the non-white boxes throughout college and gained from that.

    Warren also did not serve in the military and thus avoided the draft and serving in Vietnam.

    Warren has never denied being a female.

    Warren openly admits to receiving a government paycheck.

    On more than one occasion Warren has been observed taking a taxi in New York City.

    true, but not until then. But how big an issue would it become? Those who support her do not care, those who are against her cite it, but what about those who haven't made up their mind about her? Whether or not she checked native american on an college entrance form way back when, I really do not see this becoming a defining issue.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Conservatives have a poor track record for choosing scandals that actually make sense to anybody but themselves. The left doesn't care because they know it's manufactured nonsense, but I can guarantee you that undecided voters are listening to the Right's outrage and thinking, "This...this is a scandal? Oh crap, I marked that I was of Mexican descent when I applied to college! And I can't find my documentation anywhere! Does this mean my future in politics is over?"

    I really do not think most voters cares what someone did 20-30 or more years ago. Look at Bill Clinton, a draft evader and smoked pot in college. Yet we elected him and I am glad we did. I never voted for him, in fact it took me a couple of years to get over the fact we elected a draft evader president, that I couldn't understand at the time. But he ended up being on of the better presidents in my lifetime.

    Oh, I don't think they care either, I'm just referring to how they might try to wrap their heads around the idea of this being a scandal. First rule of trying to bring someone down over a scandal: make sure your scandal makes sense.
