Happy to see her as a candidate, but she's not going anywhere. Not that anyone should trust Russia Today, the Russian government's main international propaganda tool, as a credible news source on any subject key to Russian foreign policy.

Sherrod Brown and Amy Klobacher would both be fine selections. As would Beto; but, while his inexperience might actually be a benefit in 2020, it would be a hindrance in 2021. I like Biden, too. But I think he is too old for a hopefully-8-year gig.

Washington Post comment today on Russia Today and Gabbard:
"RT, the Russia-funded news network, has run a series of glowing pieces about Gabbard, content that dredges up painful liberal memories of Russian propaganda boosting the 2016 Trump campaign.
“Establishment figures on both Right and Left are scrambling to smear the antiwar congresswoman with impeccable identity-politics bona fides,” read a typical RT dispatch this weekend."
