As the 2020 election nears, it isn’t surprising that among the democratic nominees are some very qualified female candidates. While former Vice President Joe Biden is largely seen as the frontrunner for the democratic nomination many would argue that is more so because of name recognition and his association with former President Barack Obama than his qualification for the Democratic nomination. In fact if you’ve been following the recent debates the individuals in my opinion who stand out the most are the women.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard who at the last debate called out Senator Kamala Harris over her prosecutorial record and the no-nonsense attitude of Senator Elizabeth Warren who put John Delaney in his place about his “Republican Talking Points”. Even the work of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand highlighting the importance of mental health issues at her recent roundtable in New Hampshire is noteworthy.
While some of the women candidates are unlikely to make the Sept 12 and Sept 13 debates in Houston such as author Marianne Williamson, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand the conversations that they have started are important and have all bought value to our country.
Whoever ends up winning the nomination should definitely consider some of these women for positions in their cabinet. While it is still early, it is no doubt in my mind that the Democrats best chances at beating Donald Trump are if the nomination goes to a woman,
