Horton’s law says that whatever a politician is good on will never happen. Whatever they’re bad on, you can bet on it being implemented.
A corollary I’m proposing is that candidates who lead on their good issues can never win. Tulsi Gabbard has good and bad issues, but she leads on her anti-empire positions. Of course, this means that if she’s elected she might violate Horton’s law. Ergo, she won’t be elected.
