Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said early Thursday that he believes all the party's candidates are qualified to the president, except for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).
"What do you think of Joe Biden getting in or possibly getting in?" asked CNN "New Day" co-host Alisyn Camerota during a discussion of the 2020 Democratic field with Dean.
"Well, that's his personal choice. I've already said what I had to say about turning the page on ... my generation," Dean replied. "But ... Joe Biden is a good guy and people like Joe Biden a lot. He's run before and hasn't been able to win."
"I mean I'm really not going to take sides in this," he later added. "There are no candidates, with one exception, that I really don't think should be president."
"And who's that exception?" asked co-host John Berman.
"Tulsi Gabbard. I don't think she knows what she's doing and I don't think she ... is qualified. She's not qualified," Dean responded.

Gabbard isn't a neocon but she is an opponent of BDS and a "friend of Israel", she advocates for drone war and jsoc death squads and says she's "conflicted" on torture, all of which are instant disqualifiers in my book.
She does buck the establishment and she's definitely not a DNC goon but even as something of a maverick her politics and attitudes are still pretty troubling. I don't really have a problem with her pro-life sentiments, I don't agree with them but I do recognize there's a legitimate ethical concern there and also that there does need to be a counterbalance to the liberal nihilism. Her stances on gun control and climate change are just the standard liberal idiocy. She's decent on economic policy, supports medicare for all, a $15 minimum wage, and strongly opposed the TPP, but that only makes her a right leaning centrist in terms of objective rationality.
So while she is the best of a bad lot, she's still pretty fucking awful and can only really be endorsed as a lesser evil to the rest of the shitstain neoliberal warmongers the dnc will be forwarding.
