1. That might not be a bad thing.

 

It will give the country the opportunity to hear her defend her love of Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.

5. Fox watcher/supporters are giving her the boost to qualify. I have trouble seeing where that is

 

a good thing. Then again, I have a lot of trouble wondering why she has any Dem/Progressive support, but then again, Jill Stein found some too.

while she is most against foreign wars involving regime changes such as Iraq, Libya, etc.

13. I think Tulsi is in transition to declare herself a Republican

 

Once she is eliminated from the debates, I would not be surprised I she claimed the system was rigged and becomes a Republican.

I can see her campaigning for Trump.

to vote for him or are heavily leaning that way and not looking at the democrat. She won't convince democrats that don't already have a history of voting for republicans.

23. But it would help Tulsi. She puts her needs first.

 

Gabbard is feeling she does not have a future in the Democratic party, and she's smart enough to know third party runs are a political dead end.

The only path left for her is to slide on over to the dark side and become a rThug.

Pointing out that she has conveyed a possible 3rd party run is quite appropriate.

Meanwhile, Gabbard is a Democrat running in the Democratic Primaries with sufficient support to qualify for all the debates so far.

20. If she told Fox that she may run third party, how in the hell is that rumour?

 

If she is on video, or if a Fox News person said it and she didn't immediately refute that person, then it is highly likely true that she will run third party.

After her tweet assault on Hillary, it is hard to imagine that she voted for Hillary in 2016. If you think she did, go ahead, but it should now be clear that she didn't.

But if she does go crazy and run 3rd party, she might not hurt the democratic candidate in general.

11. Would she dare even show after her recent appearances on Carlson and Hannity's shows?

 

She spewed repug talking points about the impeachment hearings being secret (not true as repug committee members are present).

Also how can she show her face after Hillary outed her?

38. Don't know, but she was a total nobody who is now being discussed...

 

ad nauseam on cable news and social media. Hillary's comments helped raise her profile. "Fuck Jill Stein" is a popular refrain on DU and if Gabbard runs third-party, guess we'll be hearing the same about her. I just don't see the wisdom in making a total unknown a household name, when that formerly total unknown can pull votes from Democrats, especially Democrats who opposed the invasion of Iraq and other Middle East foreign policy. Maybe Gabbard will garner votes from the Steve Bannon burn-it-all-down contingent, which will hurt Rethugs more than Dems.

anybody should be welcome to dislike Tulsi, that's why I said Democratic Hate. But really, Democratic is the proper usage here, you know. So many people are threatened to see Democrat used improperly and it's important to avoid that disrespect!

I had a dream/nightmare about Tulsi. She was languishing in a prison cell and the soundtrack was playing a parody of the song Tulsa Time that was renamed Tulsi Time. The lyric goes Livin' on Tulsi time, livin' on Tusli time...

If you say a reason to ban is she attacks the policies of the Party, then should you not also ban Sanders? After all, Bernie is not even really a Democrat. Banning is not the answer.
