Tulsi Gabbard—is she too conservative for Democrats?

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii seems to me to be the only Democrat candidate with brains, biology and charisma. Noticed her on TV interview with Fox a few weeks ago.

She " caught the attention of American voters during Wednesday's first 2020 Democratic presidential primary with her remarks on foreign policy and the military. Here's what to know about the 38-year-old Hawaii lawmaker and military veteran...On foreign policy, Gabbard is opposed to "regime change wars" and wants to pull U.S. troops out of Syria and Afghanistan. Unlike many of her Democratic peers, Gabbard has said she is against impeaching Trump after former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election found "no collusion" between the president and Russia."

Not much is known about her. Watch for clues. Even if she climbs no higher in this campaign, she's young enough to keep going. She is multiracial and a practicing Hindu. I think that gives her more intersectional points than Kamala Harris or Mayor Pete.
