I've been a fan of Kamala ever since I lived in SF, so I'm happy with this.

That being said, I'm a bit surprised he didn't go with a less known VP or someone with ties to the South.

DT already has a nickname...Phony Kamala Harris. He will have to be careful. He's already way behind with the women's vote. But then he's an idiot so it probably won't matter to him.

Kamala was a smart choice re: Senate logisitcs bc Gavin Newsom will appoint another Dem senator in her place.

But I'm excited about this ticket. Let's do it!

But, don't you know a woman candidate is an insult to men. If so, I suppose a Black woman is a double insult to White men who is all Trump cares about anyway.

Excellent choice, and the smart choice. Susan Rice would have immediately been tagged with the never-ending specter of Benghazi, Joe made a wise decision.

I loved the way Kamala handled Brett Kavanaugh (sp?). He told her "I liked beer, I still like beer. Do you like beer?" and the look on her face was priceless.

Thought it was going to be Rice but congrats to Harris. I think perhaps Biden has another role in mind for Rice. Maybe Secretary of State?

Phony Kamala Harris
That's not going to stick IMO.

Schatz tweeted that Harris is excellent on climate. https://twitter.com/brianschatz/status/1293290345841569802

I feel like this is something we shouldn't be told by a fellow Senator.
I think it's part of their coordinated campaign to support the VP.

Susan Rice would have immediately been tagged with the never-ending specter of Benghazi,
That was my fear

Joe made a wise decision.
Tammy Duckworth :mitchell:

Okay, I'll shut up now. :D

So if we're #ridinwithbiden, what are with Harris? I'm not good at these things so beats me.

Turns out, according to NBC, Trump donated to Harris' AG campaigns. Twice. So did Ivanka. I hope she gives him a big thank you for the support. :lol:

Probably. He could potentially put black women into office as Vice President, Secretary of State, and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. And that is just for starters.

Tammy Duckworth :mitchell:
I think she would have been a great pick too, but I never got the impression she was one of his finalists.

Michelle Kwan is a Democratic woman of color. Why not her over Harris?! She’s not been so wuzrobbed since Lipinski. Or flop a wig over Cory Booker’s head. Sooo many better choices.

What exactly do you mean? :confused:
That it would have been nice if the MSM had thought that relevant enough to mention it. All I knew was that she is said to have been a controversial prosecutor and that she's excellent during Senate Judicial hearings and the latter I only know because I watched some of it/it was on social media.
Yes, part of it may be her team but it seems that she has publically been reduced to a former prosecutor. Hopefully, that will change now.


#Hangin'withHarris
Couldn't the image of that be a bit controversial? It took me a moment to realize that "hanging" referred to "hanging out". My first thought was literal and since she is a black woman... You see where I'm going.

Miscellaneous -

People are going to have to learn how to pronounce her name - "comma-la", not kuh-mahla or kam-ala. :)

People are going TO HAVE TO LEARN TO SAY FEMALE Vice President, not WOMAN Vice President!!!!! I have screamed "female" to the t.v. so many times, it cringes when someone says woman because it knows what's coming. Ha ha

What Dem will replace her as Senator? We can't afford to lose the seat.

@Susan1 If Biden and Harris win, the Democratic Governor of California will appoint her replacement. There is little chance of that a Republican will win the special election. California is as blue as Tahoe.

At the very beginning of this election cycle, maybe a year ago or less, I was ready for Beto, Booker, Harris, or ANYONE to reach the front. It seemed it was going to be Biden, so I went with the potential Biden/Beto once Beto wasn't getting traction for prez. Once Beto dropped out and I realized Biden is going to get this nomination, I threw my support to Harris as VP. She is so impressive.
