Tulsi Gabbard is calling on Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders to allow her to take part in the next Democratic debate.
.@JoeBiden @BernieSanders I’m sure you would agree that our Democratic nominee should be a person who will stand up for what is right. So I ask that you have the courage to do that now in the face of the DNC's effort to keep me from participating in the debates. #LetTulsiDebate

Maybe it’s the Democratic Party that’s the misogynist one.
Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — the last remaining woman in the Democrats’ presidential race — has been shut out of the party’s next debate with a rule change that makes it mathematically impossible for her to claim a podium.
Under the party’s most recent set of debate rules, any candidate who had won at least one delegate in the party’s first 25 nomination contests had the right to take the stage.
Gabbard, who gained two delegates in American Samoa’s caucuses on Super Tuesday, would have qualified.
But on Friday, party poobahs announced new criteria requiring candidates to hold at least 20% of all awarded delegates by the time of the next scheduled debate in Phoenix on March 15.
This is ridiculous and a waste of time. The DNC has every right to change the debate rules.
There is no reason to have someone polling at 1% waste everyone’s time. I say this as someone who felt that Tulsi was one of the most compelling candidates up there.
She had moments of sanity that the other candidates lacked. I respect her military service.
But, this is a two-person race now, so it is now time for a two-person debate.
I can’t wait for the next debate. I have no idea how Joe Biden will be able to hold up mentally, one on one, with Bernie Sanders for two hours. He does not appear have the mental acuity necessary to sustain a coherent performance in a fast moving debate.
Watch Joe from the campaign trail in Missouri, which votes this upcoming Tuesday.
Is Joe Biden okay?
