The author isn't voting for her but........

Why Democrat Tulsi Gabbard Will Likely Be the Next President

Why she will win the nomination

For that, let’s make this a top five.

5. Everyone in the Democratic Party knows her

Bernie Sanders lost due to relationships. The fact is, outside of Ben & Jerry’s Vermont offices, he had no contacts with big money, not many members of the house knew him well, and even the senate never formally worked with him, due to him having the independent registration. Gabbard was vice chair of the DNC and unlike Bernie has all the billionaires, senators, governors etc. in her phone book already. They know who she is and she knows them.

4. White girl Buddhist

Gabbard, if elected, would be the first Hindu president in American history. The left has this culture where many women get classified as “White girl Buddhist” and on that perspective alone, she could gain some interest from that community of people, due to her ethnic origins, and being a Hindu who is also Native American – real Native American, unlike Liz Warren. This gets her some classic liberal street cred.

3. She’s pro-gun

Believe it or not, a lot of Democrats actually do like guns. Outside of California, and some core states, there’s a spree of Democrats who want free healthcare, legal marijuana, and the power to be packing.

2. She’s the youngest Democrat

If Gabbard runs, she will be, by far, the youngest candidate in the Democratic field. At the age of 39, she would be the youngest president – if elected. AS we’ve seen with JFK, Carter, Clinton, and Obama, there’s just this fact that the youngest person tends to hold an advantage in the Democratic Party. Gabbard being over three decades the junior of Biden and Warren, while also almost 15 years younger than Booker, holds this advantage. The fact she is extremely attractive also doesn’t hurt.

1. She endorsed Bernie

In an age of NowThis, US Uncut, Occupy Democrats and so on, this is all it’ll take: a video showing Tulsi Gabbard, with her basic resume and one line “Elizabeth Warren refused to endorse Bernie Sanders. Tulsi Gabbard resigned as vice chairwoman of the DNC to endorse and fight for Bernie.”

Do that, and watch it get 30 million views, and in a day, she’ll be the most beloved person on the far left, and Liz Warren becomes yesterday’s socialist. Gabbard betting on Bernie in the 2016 primary was the strongest pick she’s made.

Yeah, right.  She's practically persona non grata in the party after she cozied up to Assad.

Clinton & Co. need to move on and get out of the way as they have had their day in the sun or whatever and by trying to hang on now all they are doing now is dividing the Democrats and bringing them down.

She should have done the normal Democratic thing and cozied up to King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud and Benjamin Netanyahu. Now there's a couple of good guys who have the respect of all mainstream US politicians.

WRT "cozying" up to Assad...given a choice between MORE REGIME CHANGE and in so doing opening another vacuum for terror groups to fill, or allying with an undesirable partner to fight an even worse common enemy, I guess there is at least a chance to defend the position of taking Assad's side in the fight against ISIS. The democrats certainly could do with getting rid of the perception that they would prefer to take ISIS' side against Assad.

In any case, those on the right and/or alt-right have noticed Gabbard and the consensus I've seen is that she is the only danger to Trump in 2020. Make of that what you will.

For the record, I don't really think it matters. If Trump does well (impossible, right?) over the next four years, then he'll win a second term - I would expect Gabbard to keep her powder dry for 2024 in this case. If Trump does poorly he'll lose to literally anyone. I really don't think there's going to be an in between. By the end of four years either Trump or his detractors will have no credibility left.

What's Clinton in the way of?  Is she campaigning for 2020?  Did the Dems already confirm her???

Good on Tulsi for getting away from this stench during the election.

Worst run campaign since Dukakis in '88.  Robby Mook was a disaster.  But the main problem was the candidate.
