I'd be very happy is she won the nomination, she or Biden. It's hard to say who's the bigger flake.

LOL, "Fauxcahontas" Warren appears to come from a family with a long history of screwing over American Indians — in recent years by falsely claiming to be one and getting preferential employment privileges, and in ancestral days just by killing them.

Maybe some reporter should ask if she'll now transfer some of her personal $millions to the Seminoles.


Elizabeth Warren a Direct Descendant of Militia ‘Indian Fighter’ Who Fought Seminole Tribe

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford served in Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion of Tennessee Volunteer Militia from November 1837 to May 1838, a six month time period during which it fought two battles in Florida against the Seminoles.

Today, there are two federally recognized Native American Seminole tribes, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which has 4,000 enrolled members, and the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, which has more than 18,000 enrolled members.

Lauderdale’s battalion fought against the Seminoles at the Battle of Loxahatchee River, in present-day Jupiter, Florida, on January 24, 1838. Then on March 22, 1838, they fought against the Seminoles again at the Battle of Pine Island, in present-day Fort Lauderdale.

A native of Virginia, Lauderdale moved to Tennessee, where he was known as the latest in a long line of Indian fighters....

The public knows more about the actual facts of Elizabeth Warren's heritage than she did.

Can't be worse than a POTUS who believes Obama was born in Kenya, so hardly worth mentioning Elizabeth Warren's ancestry is it Ezra. A person's correct racial profile is only really a concern to a racial supremacist...coincidentally it's the republicans who seems to be concerned about Warren's race

My guess is the democrats for Warren are concerned about the mire she put herself in when she lied on a legal document about being a minority and then kept perpetuating the lie for 30 years. Republicans mostly just find that lie and now her only tie to American Indianans being that her great grandfather hunted them down, rather amusing.

The point is that issue over Elizabeth Warren's perception of her own race is her business. She hasn't sought to gain economically from here comments.

Not sure how the actions of her great great great grandfather in any way tarnish her? it's not like she's trying to whitewash history like the descendants of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington or confederate slavers.

The only justification for opposing her would be sexism, as it was with Hillary.

Of the female candidates, I think Klobuchar is still the best.

No she will be the first 99.9% white person who faked being a minority for 30 years president.

Fun fact: we have already had an American Indian vice president -- more than 1/4: Republican Charles Curtis of the Kaw tribe, Herbert Hoover's vice president all the way back in the 1930s.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Curtis

(It's kind of reminiscent of how there were a bunch of southern black Republican senators and congressmen right after the Civil War until the Democrats and their paramilitary Klansmen suppressed the black vote.)
