DU Poll: Would Tulsi Gabbard be a good VP choice? [View all]

I am aware of the negatives about Gabbard, and I won't be voting for her in the primary. But I am among those who was impressed with her debate performance, and I think she could possibly be an asset on the campaign trail. So here's the question...

Regardless of what you think about her positions (or allegiances or whatever other questions you have about her):

Assuming the goal is to put together a ticket that beats Trump, do you think Gabbard would be a good choice for VP?

Yes for some candidates but not others (but not simply based on gender) - please add comment as to who you think she'd be a good or bad running mate for

Yeah, but what if she doesn't appeal to actual Democrats? The Velveteen Ocelot Jun 2019 #31
No Dem is going to vote for Trump (or stay home) because Gabbard is on the ticket. thesquanderer Jun 2019 #36
Fortunately she has no chance of being anywhere near the Dem ticket. The Velveteen Ocelot Jun 2019 #39
