This might sound silly but the Congresswoman’s present vote seemed to me the fairest solution that anyone running for President could vote. Congresswoman Gabbard realizes that any vote, yea or nay, would be self serving due to her aspirations of running for President and also realized that her vote would not affect the outcome, so she did the honorable thing and chose to abstain from making a decision one way or another. I know she will be called out for it but I think that she made the smart move. It shows character and wisdom from a person so young. The number one motto should always be “to do the right thing”, I think the congresswoman showed that in this instance, others might disagree.
