Yep. Oprah will solve all our problems!! [/sarc]
Meanwhile, perfectly qualified candidates (note my hopeful tone?) such as Tulsi Gabbard, see my siggy below, are marginalized, if not outright despised by the DNC higher ups. Because she dared back Sanders, rather than the annointed one...and you know who that was. Not only that, but she stepped down from her seat on the DNC to do so.
I have some issues with some of her stances...but she seems honest. She is a veteran. She is knowledgable in foreign affairs. These are all things that I respect, and the rest I can deal with.
You may have guessed that I would dearly love to see her run.
Not just her, of course...but no one will ever be able to convince me that Oprah is better qualified to be President than Ms. Gabbard. Ever.
But this is the state that politics is in these days. Reassuring, it's not.
