DNC Vice-Chair Resigns to Support Bernie

Congresswoman and veteran Tulsi Gabbard resigned her position Sunday as a vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee so she can support Bernie Sanders in his campaign to win the Democratic nomination.  Gabbard admitted there was tension in the party's establishment over Sanders' insurrectionist campaign including disagreement over the debate schedule that may favor their candidate, Hillary Clinton.  Gabbard also cited her disagreement with the interventionist foreign policy agenda supported by Clinton.  According to author Gail Sheehy, Hillary urged her husband president to bomb Kosovo during the air war against Serbia.  Gabbard said Sanders has the foresight and judgment to keep us out of "these failures that have resulted in chaos in the Middle East and so much loss of life."  Gabbard served in a medical unit during her first deployment overseas.
