Connecting 1.3 Billion Hindus Worldwide
Agree 100%. Would love to see #Tulsi as Prez. She is smart enough to go beyond the headlines and really get to the truth of the matter. The fact that she is independent-minded and willing to stand her ground are very admirable qualities. I think she would be a great President and would vote for her whether she was a Democrat or a Republican!
I think it is next to impossible given current state of affairs in US. Deep state within America is still hard core Christian. So people like Tulsi would never become a president in near future considering that she is very proud of her Hindu heritage & identity.
Tulsi is very self righteous and principled. You cannot be that as a politician. Which is why she is an amazing Human Being but a dreadful politician. She needs to learn to play with words to become a succefful politician but she is too honest. She had the world at her feet in 2016. All she had to do was swallow her pride and look at the bigger picture and vote for hillary. Instead she voted for Muslim appeaser Bernie who himself in the end supported Hillary. She messed it up. She would be democratic Front runner in 2020 had she played by the book.
I wonder if Tulsi is a niche player? How can she better connect to the mainstream? She has veteran following and respect among veterans, but on mainstream issues has she expressed strong ideas?
A shrude Politician is smart and conniving and knows to build alliances with strong players. Tulsi was a Vet, Woman of Color, Hindu, etc but she decided to stick to her principles and go against Hillary when she was a rising star and allied with a loser like Bernie who appeases muslims and hard left. And two times in a row Bernie ended up supporting the mainstream leader. Wrong choices led to her demise. She was the perfect candidate to beat Trump this year for Democrats. She annihilated Kamala in Debates.
Can she be a republican? Republicans like honest straight shooters who put nation first. Which she is and does. But Republicans hate socialist, which she is. If she needs to succeed in Republican party, she needs to appease the rich and working class and have pro working class or less welfare benefit type policies. Also, she is in Hawaii, I am not sure how she can become a Governor or Senator as a republican in a state like Hawaii.
Only way I see her coming back is, If Trump wins, she needs to reach out to Trump and become a Secretary of State or defense in place of Pompeo. Foreign Policy wise she and Trump are exactly the same.
Very insightful response. Makes lot of sense to me.
