I am late to Sen Warren’s Indian claim

But I thought from the beginning that her declaration of the test, with a 6th generation or 10th generation ancestor, was a mistake from the beginning.  Having quantified her Indian ‘heritage’ at 1/1024 (the lowest number which her opponents would be sure to emphasize), it is too easy a target for her opponents.  Having seen the reaction since her announcement, even from her erstwhile allies, I sincerely wonder “What was she thinking?”
