Gabbard is probably the most vocal anti war Democrat. That isn’t saying much, but I don’t demand purity.
The thing is, Democrats are not antiwar. They don’t seem to care about war either way, though it pressed they will list only positive aspects of it. They do care about provoking Russia, though. That is their thing. They care about regime change in Syria because of this. Perhaps that is just the hacks, and not the rank and file. The rank and file probably have that wonderful American antiwar inclination. The apparatchiks, however, are Wilsonian democratic man’s burden with a side of war profiteer.
The media apparatchiks with their Operation Mockingbird overtones will attempt to lynch Gabbard even if she is the most gender-correct, multi-cultural, macho military, socially liberal, economic progressive in the race.
If Gabbard runs, will this force Democrats to take coherent foreign policy stands, or will the media provide loopholes for them to avoid these tough questions?
