    What would it have solved though? I say this because unless you are a total blueblood, or your family just immigrated, who doesn't have at least some Native American blood in them?

    Most Americans do not, as a matter of fact.

    Idk, I know I do on both sides of my family. I would think a lot of people do. The problem is that generations ago, people were so ashamed of it they would not claim it. Hell just 40 years ago a lot of times Native Americans would claim to be of Hispanic decent if they were living in a predominately white community.

    Many families have lore of a Native American ancestor. Those stories are usually false. As posted earlier in this thread, I tested myself specifically to find out about my family's lore. It turned out to be false.

    In any case, your point should have made Warren more rather than less inclined to do the test.

    Re: Is Elizabeth Warren part Native American?

    This entire thing is partisan idiocy at its finest. I've seen photos of a blonde Warren, with demands of "Does This Woman Look Native American to You???" splashed all over certain websites, and even worse stupidity.

    My children's paternal great-grandmother was 100% Cherokee. Their father was 1/4 Cherokee, and my children are 1/8 Cherokee. One is blonde and green-eyed, like me, the other had (he's now bald as a cue ball) light brown hair and hazel eyes. Neither of them looked Native American... and yet, that they have Native American blood and Native American ancestry is irrefutable.

    I haven't read this thread, but any of you who are in the "she must be lying, burn the witch!" corner should hang your heads and stand in the corner, forced to listen to organ grinder music for 2 solid hours. Shame on you.

    It could be Jack, but to whom? Those who like her and will vote for her don't care one iota. Most only care about the D in behind her name. Those who are against her will raise the roof on this subject would find something else to hollar about, they also only care about the D behind her name. Those who don't know her or haven't made up their mind about her if she does run for higher office, really do not care, are indifferent to it.

    As of today, Warren is a senator from Mass. Mass has already made up their minds about the issue. What you or I think is irrelevant, we can vote her out. We can rant and rave, but what difference does that make? Only if she runs for higher office will what others think of her count, then they can make up their minds. For the time being the people of MASS has spoken and they have the last word.
    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.

    Sorry, but if you haven't read the thread your comment lacks credibility. Warren gained career advantage from her Native American claim. She could easily lay this matter to rest via DNA testing (as I did in my own family) but has declined to do so.

    You think that is strange, my daughter got a package today delivered by the USPS. UPS and Sunday delivery, much like FEDEX if you pay for it you get it. USPS, now that is the shocker.

    I would sentence them to six hours of mariachi music myself, but sure, organ grinder music works too.

    No, actually the entire thread only elucidated the complete lack of evidence of her detractor's accusations. Which was entirely predictable, of course.
