I certainly don’t.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Friday that she is running for president.
“I have decided to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week,” she said during an interview on CNN’s “The Van Jones Show.”
Gabbard, a 37-year old combat veteran, has done little to hide her presidential ambitions. She recently made stops in both Iowa and New Hampshire and looked into hiring digital staff and speechwriters. She has also authored a memoir set to be released in May.
Late Friday, in a fundraising email, Gabbard said the reason she was running “has to do with an issue that is central to the rest — war and peace.”
She also cited healthcare, immigration reform, clean water, and air, criminal justice and special interest influence in Washington.
Yeah, I still don’t care.
Like a lot of folks, I was intrigued by Gabbard when she first arrived on the scene and thought she might bring something new to the political debate.
But what she brought was a pro-Bashir Assad stance, an anti-LGBTQ past, and penchant for being a disruptor.
She is by no means the candidate that the Democrats need in 2020, or ever for that matter.
As somebody said, “She is the Jill Stein of 2020.”
P.S. Some enterprising soul compiled a hundred reasons that progressives should NOT support Gabbard. (Link)
It’s a pretty good read.
