Joe Biden’s selection of Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice-Presidential choice has stirred a huge positive response across the country.
Harris is giving the Democratic campaign a huge amount positive energy in the first days after the announcement. Seldom has a vice-presidential candidate so energized a campaign in my experience. Think back through your lifetime of all the VP candidates and I doubt you can name one that added such immediate vitality to a ticket.
Of course the Russian bots and the right wing acolytes are digging deep to insult and denigrate Harris. Nothing has stuck. Most likely none of it will. The only losers in this situation will be those who are trying to knock Harris. They already look like fools. It won’t get any better for them.
Harris possesses and incredibly sharp mind. She also has the experience to step right in and get to work on the major problems that will be left by the worst administration ever. Of course Former VP Biden has a long lifetime of experience that will allow him to start turning the country around day one. A great one-two punch.
Besides her experience, Kamala Harris instantly becomes THE symbol that a woman in America can achieve. Kamala Harris proves that in America your achievements are no longer limited by your sex or race. If you have the ability you can achieve even the highest offices in this land.
Harris’s nomination is one more major step in America finally beginning to fulfill the promises that America made in founding documents such as the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Promises are easy to make, but hard to keep. It took a long time, but America is on the verge of finally making the very bedrock promise of America come true.
As with any pioneer, Kamala will need to be tough and visionary. Her history tells us she is both. America, this is indeed a historic time.
