Turns out Mitt Romney isn’t the only political candidate haunted by high-school misadventures. The Herald has brought to light the startling news that Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren once won a Betty Crocker homemaking award. Howie Carr has the story.

It seems Warren won the coveted 1966 Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow at Northwest Classen High School in Oklahoma City. To win, contestants had to pass a written test on “homemaking attitudes and knowledge.” After passing that hurdle, Warren even received a letter from Betty Crocker herself, which Carr posits read something like: “You have already taken a big step toward a fine success in school and work and a happy life as a real-life homemaker someday — the most important career a woman can have.” She also won a pendant.

Hopefully this revelation won’t hold her back.

Heavens to Betsy! What a Crocker! [Herald]
