Here is some evidence that Kamala Harris is already Biden’s VP pick.
Biden has previously said that he will only consider women as his running mate, and Nancy Klobuchar recently withdrew with this statement:
"After what I’ve seen in my state, what I’ve seen across the country, this is a historic moment, and America must seize on this moment," Klobuchar, who is white, told cable network MSNBC. "I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket."
Puff pieces promoting Harris have appeared in the mainstream media in the last few days, while earlier questions about Harris’s record as a prosecutor in California have dropped off the radar. Here is an example of criticism of Harris from two weeks ago.
Biden has stated that he will choose a woman for the VP slot, and it seems he is being nudged toward a woman of color. That would seem to give Harris an advantage, but I think there are some negatives: 1) she is somewhat abrasive. Even some of my social friends who are liberals seem to be looking around for anyone-but-Harris because they think she’s unlikable. 2) Her record as a prosecutor might not stand up to scrutiny. 3) She doesn’t bring any contested territory, since California’s pretty much a lock for the democrats anyway.
I don’t see this mattering. It may actually help. Those who are really upset about the justice won’t vote for Trump because of that, but it may actually attract people who maybe law and order. But, liabilities are only an issue if the other side can capitalize. I don’t see any argument against her that Trump can make a valid argument to attract independents. I honestly think the possibilities of him getting to a win is decreasing by the day.
