au revoir, Tulsi!

How sad. Tulsi Gabbard was the dog who ran after the speeding car and caught it. With her jaws, she hung on to the rear bumper for as long as she could, bloodshot eyes glaring with determination, desperate saliva streaming from her mouth, her body whipping wildly in the car's buffeting slipstream. She'd been running a distant third behind Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in recent days, but she has finally bowed to reality and dropped out of the presidential race. Unfortunately, she's made the mistake of endorsing Joe Biden, but I suppose most of these dropouts feel they need to endorse somebody as a show of solidarity.

This just wasn't Tulsi's time. Give her another four years, and we'll see her again in 2024, when the Democrats will be less interested in running a slate of old white guys and will actually listen to their own rhetoric about how supposedly open and pluralistic they are. (I fully expect a Democrat to become president in 2024. American politics is pendular, a basic fact that I forgot in trying to predict the results of the 2016 election.)

Sorry, Tulsi. Better luck next time. Thanks for not voting to impeach.

I like her style but not her policies. Of all the dems though she was the only one I could have any considered voting for.
