Should Kirsten Gillibrand run for president in 2020?

Many believe New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's moment has arrived, and she is just who Democrats need to lead them to victory in 2020. She has been one of the most consistently anti-Trump Senators and recently became the target of a "sexist smear" from the president. But some Democrats are still angry that she led the charges against Sen. Al Franken, and think she's too divisive to be the party's nominee in 2020. What do you think? 🤔

Long before the #MeToo movement caught fire, Kirsten Gillibrand made sexual assault the focus of her career.

This is the perfect moment for Gillibrand to emerge as one of the leading voices in the Democratic Party, a perhaps fleeting window when gender seems to have trumped class or race as the animating principle in American political and cultural life. It is a moment she helped bring about, by seizing on the issue of sexual assault in the military, bringing victims up to Capitol Hill to share their stories publicly and challenging the Pentagon to hold itself accountable. 

After calling out Bill Clinton and leading the charge against Sen. Al Franken, many believe Gillibrand will most likely be the Democratic nominee in 2020.
