    He's the principle chief of the Cherokee Nation. I wonder if Senator Brown could tell he is of American Indian ancestory by looking at him. Does Brown know that this man qualifies to be their leader and he is only 1/32 Cherokee? I love Brown's new "no more Mr. Nice Guy" routine...it shows off his natural prickishness. Something he and Rmoney seem to have perfected.

      For many years every president appointed the CEO of Phillips Petroleum, W.W. Keeler. In the 70's I helped lead demonstrations to allow the Cherokee to elect their own Chief. Keeler didn't appear to have a drop of Indian blood but I have no idea whether he did or didn't.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity

      ...quantum requirement (two other Cherokee tribes do); it only requires that a tribal member have an ancestor on the Dawes Rolls, which Baker does.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
