More and more, news outlets, and more importantly, people, are catching on to her bravery and willingness to take risks. Yet people don't realize the obvious, she already had when she served our armed forces, and came out the way she did.
WASHINGTON — Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s secret fact-finding trip to Syria and Lebanon — and especially her meeting with a brutal dictator, Syrian President Bashar Assad — continues to garner attention here and abroad.
Gabbard, who serves on the House Foreign Affairs and Armed Services committees, has declined to share many details about the week-long visit to the war-torn nations, which has only added to the mystery and heightened the suspicions of people questioning her motives.\
Though WaPo is being accredited into obscuririty, their recent ranking article includes Tulsi Gabbard. For once in a long time they have it right? Time will tell.
The New Yorker's Amy Davidson has a terrific piece up listing 13 women — 11 Democrats, two Republicans — who she argues should consider running for president against Donald Trump in 2020.
I took Davidson's premise slightly further below, offering my rankings — in terms of the likelihood they run and the chances they could win the Democratic nomination — of the 11 Democratic women Davidson highlights. (As of today, a Republican primary challenge to Trump seems too unlikely to delve too deep into who might do it.)
Is it possible? Yes. Can it be done with a full support and readers like you. Yes again. This article explains more.
On July 26, 2016, Democratic House Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii introduced herself to America by delivering a speech (video left) in support of Senator Bernie Sanders’ nomination for the president of the United States.
It was a bold move. The US Army Major and Iraq War veteran was a woman and a member of the Democratic Party and expectations were such that, naturally, she would make the politically expedient move and support the female candidate and then-presumptive nominee and future first female president Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York. The party loyalists, in spite of the emergence of little-known candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont (to that point an Independent), had largely coalesced behind what was considered the inevitable next and first female president. Mrs. Clinton had all the financial and political backing and a former and at the time well-liked former president husband, Bill.
Though we all know what the outcome of the 2016 election was, this article underlines a growing movement that may be our new future, and new candidate for change.
Supporters and pundits will in Bernie Sanders’s Michigan primary victory seek signs of new life in his bid for the Democratic nomination. But whether or not he bests Hillary Clinton in 2016, his campaign has given the nation a glimpse of what the future of the Democratic Party might look like – and who might be among its leaders.
U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii was probably little known outside her district or party circles until a few weeks ago. But then the thirty-four-year-old congresswoman resigned her position as Democratic National Committee vice chair to endorse Sanders. It was probably the highest profile endorsement of his campaign, and it came from a politician many consider to be a rising star.
Gabbard has an impressive resume: She was elected to the Hawaii House of Representatives at twenty-one, served two tours of duty in Iraq, and won her current House seat in 2013. While conventional wisdom suggests her DNC resignation appears to be a needless sacrifice of present prominence, her endorsement might instead be read as an initial effort to spearhead and lead the Democratic coalition of tomorrow.
Here is an opinion piece on why we NEED Tulsi to run, not just want.

Bernie Sanders sparked a political revolution and paved the way for progressives like Tulsi Gabbard to restore democracy to our nation.
We're calling on Tulsi Gabbard to run for President in 2020.
Here is another article on potential Democratic Nominees in 2020, including, none other the Rep. Gabbard.
After a long and unpredictable 19 months of campaigning, Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States. The metaphorical internet ink is not yet dry on hot takes about what happened Tuesday night and how America is still slowly coming to grips with what has happened. We're going to face a minimum of two years of Republican control of both the White House and Congress, along with all that means for both government policy and the emerging opposition forces from the larger portion of the country that voted against him.
This article talks about different women who can replace Hilary's failed 2016 bid, including Tulsi.
Here is a New Year’s resolution for Democratic women in politics: be at least as brazen as Republican men are in deciding whether to run for President. It’s not just that Donald Trump had no record of public service and a long list of what might be considered disqualifying attributes and actions. Ben Carson had no experience in elected office, and other candidates had very little. Marco Rubio was greeted as the future of the Party when he decided to run just two-thirds of the way through his first term. That was only two years’ more experience in the Senate than Ted Cruz, one of the final contenders, had. In 2017, there will be a dozen Democratic female senators with more experience. And why limit it to the Senate, or to any particular level of elective office? Women, in all professions, tend to feel that they need to make their résumés perfect before putting themselves forward. Maybe they should stop thinking that way, at least in American politics, where insiderness does not seem to be particularly valued at the moment. Here’s another test to think of before asking whether a woman is enough of a national figure to jump into the Presidential race: How well known was the state senator Barack Obama in 2004?
Here is a petition for Tulsi to run for President.
We want US Representative Tulsi Gabbard to consider a 2020 presidential run on the Democratic ticket.
The 2016 Democratic Primary was unfairly biased against progressive Senator Bernie Sanders, which resulted in Hillary Clinton receiving the nomination and ultimately losing to Donald Trump in the general election. Representative Gabbard resigned as vice-chair of the DNC to endorse Senator Sanders, and faced backlash from the Clinton campaign for this bold move.
Tulsi Gabbard, a veteran of the Iraq War who serves on the US Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has been a democratic representative for Hawaii since 2013 and has worked on important issues such as the promotion of clean energy, the problem of sexual assault in the military, and the restoration of the Glass-Steagall Act. Tulsi Gabbard was also the vice-presidential pick of Senator Bernie Sanders on the California general election ballot.
Here Tulsi speaks on why she stood with Bernie Sanders, and the National Nurses Union.
Intro: Sanders, a former chair of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, "has worked hard to bring our veterans the care and benefits they've earned" as evidenced in his successful "bipartisan effort to guarantee our veterans access to healthcare wherever they are in America," says Gabbard.
Here is another video supporting what Tulsi has risked and what stakes she is raising in her work for justice. If she runs for President, she already is building support from every corner of the U.S.

Tulsi Gabbard is willing to go out on a limb.
