Tulsi Gabbard’s departure from the Democrat Party has politicos speculating about a possible 2024 presidential run.
The former Hawaii congresswoman said the party was being led by “an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness” who promote “anti-white racism.”
Now a good many DC Beltway types are wondering if a Trump-Gabbard ticket might be in the making.
“Lot of chatter today about Tulsi joining a Trump ticket,” Human Events commentator Jack Posobiec tweeted.
Fox’s Greg Gutfeld says she’s the perfect choice for Trump.
“I think she’s going to be Trump’s VP,” he said. “I think that’s where this is going.”
She certainly checks off lots of boxes. She supports border security. She also backs parental rights and opposes critical race theory.

But there are some other issues that could cause problems among social conservatives. Gabbard is pro-abortion and supports a crackdown on gun ownership. Got an F-rating from the NRA.
During her time in Congress she was a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus.
Would those issues be stumbling blocks for a would-be Trump presidential run?
It’s hard to say.
Next Generation Republicans are far to the left on many of the culture war issues that have shaped the modern day party.
The question is whether the lust for power is greater than devotion to the party’s principles.
In the meantime, enjoy the political parlor games.
