    .@BetoORourke on @TulsiGabbard: “Tulsi is not being groomed by anyone. She is her own person. Obviously has served this country, continues to serve this country in uniform, in Congress, as a candidate for presidency so I think those facts speak for themselves.”

    Interesting. Beto may be angling for a VP slot.

    Angling for a slot.

    Maybe VP is too much to bite off.  But I would like to see him in charge of ICE; plenty of heads he could bite off there.

    I think perhaps the important thing is that Beto figured it was in his best interests to stand up to Hillary. He’s not afraid of her, which is a sign of declining influence on her part, which is a good thing indeed.

    His people instincts could be up to scratch here. He does have his ear to the ground when it comes to young progressives, and Tulsi might have most of their sympathy in this regard. Especially if any of them think of themself as being a bit Socialist, and are tired of explaining that that doesn’t equate to being sympathetic to Russia, or Communism.

    And he saw how Yang and Williamson broke, and he won’t want to look less cool then they are coming off as by having Gabbard’s back. And btw, she’s a woman of color, and of the people, and a white multi-millionaire is trash talking her, so it’s extra important for Beto to not be part of Clinton’s club in this.

    Good instincts/advisors/savvy Beto!
