Elizabeth Didn't Want To Make It On Brains
So, she became a Harvard law professor and then a politician. Perfect!
Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren, who has made her stated desire for a “level playing field” the cornerstone of her Senatorial campaign, once said she longed to win a contest on the basis of her beauty, physical attributes, and other criteria “unrelated to smarts” — including “knowing someone who can fix the outcome.”Well, looks is out. Hey! I've got an idea! How about if we pretend to be an Indian and score using affirmative action.
In what may have been a botched attempt at humor, Warren, then a tenured Harvard Law School professor, answered a question put to her for the “Spotlight,” a 1996 Harvard Law School yearbook feature designed to profile a professor in greater depth.
“What is the one thing you have never done but always hoped to do?” the unnamed interviewer asked.
“Win a contest that has nothing to do with brains,” Warren responded. “I want to win something because of beauty, luck, physical skills, height, knowing someone who can fix the outcome — something unrelated to smarts.”
