Tulsi Gabbard, the only Hindu in US Congress, is a potential US Presidential candidate. The Democratic Party is desperately looking for young blood and new leadership at this point. The representative from Hawaii is hugely popular and has good support in the Bernie Sanders faction of the Democratic Party.
Tulsi is an intelligent and morally upright politician and people often compare her with Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders. One of the reasons for her popularity is she does not take millions of dollars for speeches from big corporations.
Tulsi was born on April 12, 1981 in Leloaloa, American Samoa to a large. Later, her family shifted to Hawaii. As a teenager, Tulsi co-founded an environmental non-profit called the “Healthy Hawai’i Coalition”, which serves to educate children about protecting the environment of Hawaii. She was involved in other social and community activities.
Tulsi’s entered politics in 2002 at the age of 21 where she became the youngest elected official to the Hawaii state legislature in the history of the state. Many like to see the 36-year-old dynamic politician as future President of the US.
“Given Bernie’s endorsement, she could have a support base that includes, but is not limited to: his former supporters, social libertarians, disenfranchised members of the alt-right, and even democrats who only vote based on party alignment. With this unique and incredibly powerful coalition of voters, Tulsi could easily be propelled past the democratic nursing home, past the historically unpopular presidential incumbent, and into the White House. She has the one thing that nearly every candidate lacks – honesty. This lone characteristic would allow her to mop the debate floor with nearly anyone and everyone who may come her way. It also doesn’t hurt that she has political baggage to hold against these politicians who refused to support her bill to stop arming terrorists; it’d be amazing how quickly that headline would be able to destroy a political opponent,” writes Chris Bonanny, a citizen journalist, in medium.com.
