    She is not running for President, though, so still your wildly beating heart.
    Yest again with this blatant lie , show me one republican who has lost their mind over this or even criticized it in anyway or passed any negative comment on it.

    The media have been running with this nonsense for the last week and Conservative commentators have repeatedly asked various outlets that are running this to come with one example or one quote to back this narrative up , and so far none has.

    Not in 2020. She cannot even run.

    Democratic Rep Tulsi Gabbard had thrown her hat into the ring.

    The Hawaii Democrat's entrance into the presidential primary field comes before an expected wave of similar announcements from higher profile candidates.

    Sounds like she is getting in early to avoid the rush.

    IMO one to watch and one that could make a very attractive VP option.

    Dont think gabbard can win (as I said of Obama and Trump) . Cannot see “the good Christians” (cough cough) voting for somebody who doesn’t believe in all that Jesus B.S. yanks are superstitious and believe that Harry Potter Prequel is the truth.

    I'd agree there. She may even be running to end up a VP pick as I don't think she has a chance. There are her dodgy links with Assad as well.

    Given her car crash showing in the media so far her running would be hilarious. Makes Palin look like an intellectual.

    Palinn was old (for a woman ) when she ran for VP and looked like a faded beauty queen, ocaso Cortez is 29 so while a bit past her peak is still attractive(although cannot run until 2024) The presidential race is now show business as Obama and trump showed. Your ability has little to do with it.

    The lunatic Christian fundamentalists are all Trump cultists anyway. No serious Democrat contender is going to bother trying to pander to those eejits.

    Some media sources saying we could have 20-30 declared Dem candidates by Easter

    It's definitely looking like an interesting primary season! I'll wait till I see the whole field before I start thinking of a favourite, but Gabbard will be more of a contender than the Right seem to think.

    Why was AOC the only Congressman to be booed by Republicans when she voted for Nacncy Pelosi as for Speaker?

    Republicans have tweeted about where she was born, what she wears, where she went to school, how she dances ... if there ever was a derangement syndrome, this is it.

    And, being true to form, ReTrumplicans then lie about the whole thing.



    (Scarry is a conservative reporter with the Washington Examiner. He eventually deleted the Tweet.)

    Gabbard is a "Libertarian Leaning Progressive", more conservative economically than most on the left, but not by much.

    However, she is (or maybe was) a maverick on some issues that probably dooms her candidacy. I find it hard to see soccer moms in California or New Hampshire warming to her, or New York black activists.
