Senator-elect Tammy Duckworth of Illinois and Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii should be President and VP of the Democratic ticket in 2020. We should run 2 female military veterans of color.
Duckworth and Gabbard would bridge gaps between the Obama and Bernie wings, while producing a media sensation.
I don't know how we are going to win without taking the media back from Trump and consolidating the Democratic vote.
There's no combination on the Democratic roster that makes more sense. Biden, Kaine, Booker, and Sanders nominations simply cannot come close to the shock and awe created by a Duckworth-Gabbard ticket.
Go big or go home. Democrats with courage win elections. We cannot be afraid to nominate two females of color in 2020. We win when we take the commercial print and air-time back by 'giving them something to talk about' other than Donald Trump.
Duckworth is a national icon. She lost her legs in service to our country and she lives to serve and honor those who saved her life and the country that they all serve. She inspires us all to be better human beings. She does that for me. That's what Presidents should do: deserve our respect and admiration.
Gabbard is an iconoclastic progressive Democrat with the attention of the internet. She has a high degree of appeal and media coverage across party lines due to her controversial criticism of Obama's GWOT leadership, in which she aligned with conservatives to implore the Obama administration to address 'radical islam' by name. Yet, she broke with the party to support Bernie Sanders and has continued to align with Sanders Democrats, such as with the Standing Rock crisis.
Duckworth and Gabbard is the most exciting ticket possible for the Democrats in 2020.
