In reply to the 21 replies already recorded: Are you all maybe piling on a little? Like most of us, he'd like to make a difference. On the other hand, I'm sure he'd prefer not getting the kind of treatment Bradley Manning has suffered.

I'm about 200% certain that you have it wrong. She is some significant fraction of Cherokee, on her mother's side, I think. The Republicans tried to smear her with the accusation that she traded on her Native American ancestry to get preferential treatment, which she did not do.
