Tulsi Gabbard for DNC Chair NOW (edit) [View all]

Last edited Sun Jul 24, 2016, 09:20 PM - Edit history (1)

Need I say more?

Edit to add: IF she is so toxic how did she get to be Vice Chair of the DNC in the first place.

The term is up in January. So 6 months only. I want to beat Trump. This short term office would go a long way. Simple concept. Think about it that way. It is going to come up at the convention.

A short term olive branch after the VP pick and email (more on the way we hear) upset many Dems, to unify the party and keep the White House.
