Yesterday, after Elizabeth Warren quit the race for the Democrat nomination, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came out and took aim at all the sexism and misogyny that she thinks has taken place along the way:
Pelosi: "There's a certain element of misogyny that is there. And some of it isn't really mean-spirited, it just isn't their experience. Many of them will tell you they had a strong mom, they have strong sisters, they have strong daughters, but they have their own insecurities." pic.twitter.com/IPHu5168Se

With that in mind, the DNC has announced the rules for qualifying for the next debate:
Just in: The DNC announced the threshold for the next debate (March 15) and it'd be virtually impossible for Tulsi Gabbard to make it.
Candidates will need 20% of all delegates awarded thus far – she has (delegate, <1%).
Joe Biden vs. Bernie Sanders, alone.

Sorry, Rep. Gabbard — it’s just going to be Sanders and Biden this time.

The DNC could have written "Tulsi Gabbard isn't allowed on the debate stage" and it would have been just as subtle. https://t.co/nn4kxSNMIr
