Oh man this is great!!!  

From a press conference in downtown Springfield this morning after she stepped off the train (smart eco-conscious liberal taking the train) on her way to today's state Democratic Convention at the Springfield Civic Center (aka the MassMutual Center):

"My father’s people said he should not marry her because she is part Cherokee and part Delaware. They eloped in order to deal with that. That is my mother’s story," she said.

Warren, a Harvard law professor, hit back at criticism that she may have initially said she was unaware that Harvard had listed her as a minority. She also denied that her academic career was enhanced by the status.

"I've said exactly the same thing and that is that I let Harvard know after I was hired,'' Warren said. "I let the University of Pennsylvania know after I was hired. This is part of my family. I never received any benefit from it. Every single person who has been involved in hiring me has issued a statement to that effect."

She said she will never forsake her American Indian background....

Steady, consistent honesty should reassure everyone and anyone that she is being (and has been) truthful about everything.  As we know the Mass polls are showing the voters don't care about this non-issue and that she has pulled even with Scott Brown.

This kind of unabashed sincerity comes across as authentic, genuine.  It's always a winner.  Liz is going to win!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
