Good choice. Made my day.

Biden and Harris will mop the floor with Trump and Jesus Man.

13 ( +47 / -34 )

Great choice!

Adios Trump!

18 ( +44 / -26 )

Good Choice. Biden/Harris ticket. Awesome. I want her to campaign and debate like a prosecutor, not a politician. Her composure during committee hearings, is how she should comport herself on the campaign trail and during the debate to swamp Pence with facts. If she does, it's going to be interesting.

19 ( +37 / -18 )

I was hoping for a more progressive running mate like Warren, but Kamala is a viscous former prosecutor! She will shred both Trump and Pence in a single serving!

4 ( +30 / -26 )

Anyone but Trump.

18 ( +39 / -21 )

A little surprised. I really thought Mr. Biden would pick Susan Rice based on the years they worked together during his time as Vice President and her duties on the National Security Council and supposed rapport they enjoyed. Ms. Harris is very much seen as a Miss Law and Order among many Democrats, and not in a good way. The rap on her is her seeming support of cops accused of gross abuse including unnecessary killings though I am willing to bet more than beers some on the right will attempt to paint Ms. Harris as the gang candidate or similar. I have already seem some discussions where someone wrote "Kamala Harris, gang bang, hip hop". Sigh. Maybe Mr. Biden views her law enforcement background as a strength on a national level. Hard to say unless he puts it in his memoirs.

Good choice. Someone's who's more than ready to step in as VP from Day 1, and who could step up to Prez on a moment's notice if need be. A centrist despite what the Republican party will try and portray her as, she effectively defangs the 'law and order' tripe that Trump's trying to peddle.

@Desert Tortoise

I agree with you re' track record on policing police. Her track record in CA was dismal. She's probably a good running mate, but I fear the Trump camp is going to rip her to shred for her time as AG of CA (where a lot of police basically got away with murder).

There is more than one Joe and Pamela in the matryoshki of the Democratic ticket: the silver smiley scarecrow and the DNC's Manchurian Candidate chooses the affable, "butter wouldn't melt in her mouth" feline feminist concealing her ambitious inner prosecutorial Hilary Clinton. The DNC have done it again with their safely conservative dream ticket, yet a red rag to the Russian Trump train of right-wing racists and male chauvinists!

Ridin' Biden doesn't have the legs and won't last the course so Harris will be America's first woman president and, like the first "black" president, Obama, perhaps a good thing, but it ain't necessarily so.

-14 ( +8 / -22 )

I've liked her since she turned William Barr into a stuttering idiot in front of the entire world.

15 ( +29 / -14 )

Sen. Kamala Harris, who was announced as presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate on Tuesday, once said that she believed women who accused Biden of inappropriate touching.

“I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” the California senator told reporters in April 2019

now we see why the pick was delayed. Can joe coexist with her for even 90 days until election?

-12 ( +13 / -25 )

Part of the reason he chose her was chemistry. And yes, she viciously attacked him during the debates last year on his segregation record, and it was that passion that prob got her over the line. Like all the other choices, indeed, all other politicians, there are skeletons in her closet. But now there’s a team. Go get ‘em!! Depose the tinpot dictator. Can’t wait to see him dragged screaming from the WH “rigged!!!”

22 ( +31 / -9 )

I actually preferred Susan Rice, but she may have too much baggage with Benghazi even though it was not their fault. I bet Pence is shaking in his boots because trump might replace him with a woman just to win.

Note:

Both donald trump and Ivanka trump donated to Kamala Harris's campaign in California between 2011-2013.

Oh, my...................

20 ( +26 / -6 )

Well, so much for sticking to one’s basic principles. Not too long ago Harris was trying to convince all of us that Biden was a racist and unfit for the presidency. Now all of that is suddenly out of the window. Well, everyone has a price people say.

It’s ironic that people want to tear down statues of the founding fathers of the USA because of their centuries past racism; yet Biden gets a pass by these same people for his blatant racism that happened as little as just the other day, not to mention his decades long track record of racist behavior and innuendoes.

-12 ( +13 / -25 )

No it’s just me. Saying she isn’t African American. Is this untrue?

called joe a racist and inappropriate tougher of women. Imprisoned actual African Americans. Even believed the Jussie Smollet hoax.

Already the Republican rapid response team backed by Putin and Bannon's trolls have started their race -baiting attacks

-11 ( +13 / -24 )

Tulsi Gabbard absolutely destroyed Harris on her voting record in criminal justice and exposed her as a hypocrite. Dead in the water.

-8 ( +19 / -27 )

As long as Biden doesn't debate she will be the next president within months. Risky pick since he vetted his VP based on gender and color. Other qualified candidates were not allowed to get a sniff.

Going to be another close one in November.

-8 ( +11 / -19 )

Well done Biden !!!

His choice showed its affect immediately with trump blubbering nonsense.

He is scared!!!!!

5 ( +20 / -15 )

Rice will still be in the administration so not really a surprise. Biden will continue to surround himself with competent professionals not yes men/women or actual criminals. Harris is a good example. She can be frank with him and he with her. That's a good dynamic in a crisis. You don't need to be best friends and that wil keep them on their toes. Those conversations are going to be where action is made. Harris can make a trusted lieutenant and fighter. People will want to get on her good side.

But it's August, and 2020 and the psychotic Cheeto in office have 5 more months to go to keep destroying

This part from the Democratic debates is all you need to know about Kamala Harris.

-13 ( +7 / -20 )

No it’s just me. Saying she isn’t African American. Is this untrue?

There are many ways to understand what an individual's ethnicity might be. One is how they personally identify themselves.

Another is how based on their physical appearance, for example skin color. they are perceived by others.

Right wingers said the same thing about President Obama. I expect the far right, US and 'foreign', to continue their same race-based attacks. In their ongoing attempts to further divide the country.

America has roughly 100,000,000 people of color, roughly 40,000,000 who identify as 'Black'.

Unfortunately Trump and Trump Republicans are doing whatever they can to limit the involvement of non-white people in any leadership role. Aided by white nationalists. And they're being helped by another mostly white country.

13 ( +24 / -11 )

I guess we know who the trump family supports!

Records show that Trump donated to Kamala Harris' campaigns twice while he was a private citizen

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-donated-to-kamala-harris-twice-as-private-citizen-2020-8

Trump's history of donating to Harris — and other Democratic candidates — resurfaced on Tuesday after Joe Biden, the former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, tapped Harris to be his running mate.

16 ( +19 / -3 )

It really doesn’t matter because even on Election Day more than half of US voters cannot name the running mate.

-18 ( +6 / -24 )

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/437107-harris-i-believe-biden-accusers

Kamala also believes Biden's sexual assault accusers...but is perfectly fine being his running mate?

-9 ( +12 / -21 )

The Don supporters seem bitter because they subconsciously see the "writing on the wall". There will not be surprise win like last time. The failures of the current president is well documented for all to see.

Kamala Devi Harris (/ ˈkɑːmələ / KAH-mə-lə; born October 20, 1964) is an American lawyer and politician serving as the junior United States Senator from California since 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, Harris is the second African American woman and the first South Asian American to serve in the United States Senate.

11 ( +18 / -7 )

Vice President Kamala Harris!!

2024 President Kamala Harris!!

Yep, it's happening. Tough, smart and caring. She's her own person, and won't be doing a Pence(the worst presidential lackey, ever for the worst president, ever).

7 ( +20 / -13 )

Hopefully, Biden can last 2 yrs and 1 day after his win. That would be best for the DNC.

Happy he didn't go far left with the cranks in their party. Kamala isn't perfect, but within his promise for a a female running-mate, she's the best choice. She's been in public service since 1990, though she has a few wacko ideas, nothing as wacko as Pence.

4 ( +11 / -7 )

Solid choice. Intelligent, tough, feisty and a minority. Yeah, she's the whole package. She's such a solid choice that she'd probably make a better president than Biden, so there's nothing to worry about if she's needed immediately.

The trump Klan’s combined IQ cannot match that of Kamala.

An intelligent, thinking , plain speaking woman, something trump hates.

Even though VP debates don’t matter too much, but will be fun to see her tear pence to shreds.

There is more than one Joe and Pamela in the matryoshki of the Democratic ticket

Oops, KAMALA!

I hope that was a lack of sleep and before my morning coffee rather than a senior moment.

After four of the longest years of my life listening to the incoherent babble from the Donald, it will be a refreshing change to hear Kamala speak from the bully pulpit in complete sentences and in a tongue I can recognize as English. We should all be thankful for small mercies.

12 ( +17 / -5 )

Biden dug deep into his binders full of black women and pull out a former prosecutor who locked up black men at a record pace in California.

Now Harris, who slammed biden for his racist opposition to busing that would have denied her an equal education, is cool with biden’s racism. Interesting.

-8 ( +10 / -18 )

Tulsi Gabbard absolutely destroyed Harris on her voting record in criminal justice and exposed her as a hypocrite. 

And that's why Gabbard (and Andrew Yang) are being cold shouldered or smeared by their party. Democrats with actual principles and integrity are considered traitors to today's Dem party. For them, it's all about power - principles get in the way.

@Hubert, et al. You're scared, as is Trump. Your posts reveal this.

Kamala Harris is the truth. She doesn't freely lie as is ubiquitously done by Trump and isn't the coward Trump is.

She is not going to head for a bunker, she'll face the music, any day, any time. She will certainly prove the old and in the way adage 'be a man' will be changed to 'be a woman' as a phrase of bravery. Instead of kissing Putin's butt, like Donald so eagerly did, she'll scare him, too. These misogynists are in for a lesson!

4 ( +12 / -8 )

The fear of Trump's cult is palatable with the choice of a strong and intelligent black woman!!! Go Kamala!!!

2 ( +13 / -11 )

Biden is bad news. He gave his people some strict conditions when it come to choosing his vp. First it has to be a woman and second she has to be black. He didn't care whether if she has the ability or not. His previous choice was off the table because she had more ability than him and was more ambitious.

Is still Trump 2020 for me! Trump will annihilate them both. Especially at the debate Trump is gonna eat Biden for breakfast. Biden can't handle stress and questions that are not predetermined. Biden mind has been deteriorating for the last few years. USA future is over if he win.

-7 ( +8 / -15 )

You obviously have no idea who Kamala Harris is. She has great ability and an excellent mind.

Sad, but true, so now Trump's hand may be forced to dig deep into his binders to look for one of the few white women he hasn't maligned or molested, which will mean throwing his white-bread, tailor's dummy VP under the bus to find his "queen" to check Biden.

7 ( +12 / -5 )

A debate between Kamala and Pence would be hilariously one sided win for Harris, but something even better would be her in a debate with Trump. He'd get so angry having a smart black woman showing his ineptitude and revealing his stupidity, the frustration would lead to him pouting and leaving the stage.

Actually, he is such a coward, he would never agree to debate her face to face. haha. I can't even imagine that scenario, but it'd be a great Colbert skit.

If you think I support Trump then you need to learn about people who have a nuanced view of the world. Just because I call Kamala Harris out for being a hypocrite, doesn't mean I'm a Trump supporter.

Harris should get the majority Black and Indian vote

1 ( +6 / -5 )

To those with reasoning skills above the level of the bigot it probably doesn't matter. But expect the far right to make it an issue.

Not really, but expect more blacks to come out against her especially given her record as a former prosecutor at putting away a lot of black men.

Expect to read daily posts from the far right - paid and 'volunteer' - using her ethnicity to distract from Trump's failures.

No one will, her color has nothing to do with anything, her record does and it’s not a goo one, but liberals will make it a race issue simply by saying any conservative that hates her is doing so because she’s black. Just wait. The race card is too important for liberals to give up.

-7 ( +9 / -16 )

This is going to fun watching the Biden/Harris landslide win, as Trump's twitter feed is going to get even more ridiculous as the election nears and his anger rises, knowing he is losing with a black woman on the opposing ticket. White supporters are freaking out. LOL!!

Yeah, that's something people in this comment section especially don't seem to understand. Biden and Harris are the worst of what the opposition had to offer for Trump. But because they "towed the line" and not dare have their own nuanced opinion, Yang and Gabbard were marginalized and pushed out. And even though I disagree with Bernie Sanders, he too was pushed away (again!).

But they can't see the fact that Biden and Harris were carefully selected. It's all a sham.

The president ran away from a woman reporter last week when she confront him on lying about signing the "Veterans Choice Law".

Trump walked out of a press conference after a reporter challenged his repeated false claim that he signed Veterans Choice into law

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-ended-press-conference-reporter-challenged-false-veterans-choice-claim-2020-8

The law was signed in 2014 under the Obama administration and received bi-partisan support from Senator Bernie Sanders and former Senator John McCain. Trump has falsely claimed that his administration passed Veterans Choice into law over 150 times.

He had no answer, so he ran away. If can't handle a reporter, how is going to handle a successful trained lawyer like Kamala Harris?

@Silvafan: You should have no problem voting for Kamala Harris because in your words, she is tough on the "Blacks"!

I have a problem with people using racial differences to allocate government punishments or benefits. I have a feeling that biden and Harris will continue the black nationalist policies of the Obama regime. Any government policy from either party that specifies race for disparate treatment is racist. On that score, Trump is obviously better than biden/Harris (but I wouldn’t vote for either of them).

Harris has joined the ticket with a man she deemed a racist in a debate. She will do whatever biden tells her to do. So much for principals. The one thing you can say for her though - because she supports biden she can still be black.

@sunfundun: You obviously have no idea who Kamala Harris is. She has great ability and an excellent mind.

That doesn’t explain her getting blown out in the Dem primaries by an old privileged white man who has a history of racism and is an accused rapist? How great can her mind and ability be?

-3 ( +7 / -10 )

She was chosen by the DNC, not Biden, who probably doesn't even remember who she is.

Anyway, Biden will likely not last til election day so I expect Harris to be running for president.

Harris was owned pretty badly by Tulsi Gabbard in the CNN Democratic debate. She has no chance against Trump. Remember, Trump doesn't play fair. He's not a normal "debater". He'll come out with personal attacks, dirty tricks, etc.

That's why Biden/Harris can't win against Trump in a debate, because he doesn't play by the rules.

If they want to beat Trump, they have to play the same dirty game he does, just better than him.

Pfffft. Utter nonsense. lol. Yang and Gabbard were poor candidates, simple and true. Sanders, like you, had many disagree with his views, the main reason he ended up losing.

Arguing the process of democratic candidacy at this point is moot. You only are gaslighting for Trump support at this point on that matter. Biden/Harris will win!!!

Obamacare was for the "Blacks"? Anyway I am glad to hear that you disliked the previous +350 years of American History because the US was founded on doing that exact thing!

Harris has joined the ticket with a man she deemed a racist in a debate. She will do whatever biden tells her to do. So much for principals. The one thing you can say for her though - because she supports biden she can still be black.

Or it could be seen that the "old racist" white man is learning from his mistakes and once again relying on person of color to save him. How you know that he won't do anything with advice from Kamala?

Biden was VP for 8 years to the first Black US President that has been voted by the majority of Americans as the "Best US President of their Lifetime".

Trump said Harris is too far left, saying she wants to raise taxes

That's just garden variety left. Even the "right-wing" Japanese government wants to raise taxes, although the motivations might(?) be different.

I'd like government to prioritize spending, meaning that non-priority spending doesn't happen, and the need to hike taxes is reduced as a result. (I call it common sense, neither left nor right.)

This pick will make it easier for Trump to slide into a second term. Wait until Pence grills her on her record in California, wait until Joe has to debate Trump and be on that stage for 90 min. It will take a monumental effort for Biden to keep his focus.

Anyway, Biden will likely not last til election day so I expect Harris to be running for president.

That’s what it really boils down to, this is more about Trump vs Harris, but that might bring out more people voting for Trump simply because Harris doesn’t have the appeal like Michelle Obama or even Bernie.

Imprisoned actual African Americans. Even believed the Jussie Smollet hoa

It is funny how non-Blacks always like to decide for Blacks who they consider to be part of their community or ethnicity.

It also so funny how that their own rebuttal is that she is not even "Black". They are obviously freaking out!

That nonsense didn't work when Pres. Obama was elected twice, not did it work when they tried to diminish accomplishments.

The same will be true if Kamala Harris is elected VP, and if Biden decides to step down at some point which will allow Kamala to become the first "Woman President".

Let's stay on topic, please! Biden chosen a good running mate that will help to solidify his election win! trump has no answer except a failed record.

Any takers?

"“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden tweeted. In a text message to supporters, Biden said, “Together, with you, we’re going to beat Trump.”"

Wait until Kamala grills Pence on his current role as VP and his failed leadership as Governor. Remember, the HIV pandemic Pence caused in his state? I do.

So does most Americans because Pence is repeating himself with COVID-19! Ms. Harris will wipe the floor with both!

I look forward to debates because it will be a blood bath with Kamala Harris winning!

Joe Biden in many respects boxed himself in, insisting his proposed running mate, future Vice President be gender specific, more than a whiff of identity politics, tokenism.   

Biden, Harris beliefs and ideology politically are chalk and cheese.

One of Harris’ standout moments of her presidential campaign came at the expense of Biden. During a debate, Harris said Biden made “very hurtful” comments about his past work with segregationist senators and slammed his opposition to busing as schools began to integrate in the 1970s.

“There was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day,” she said. “And that little girl was me.”

Shaken by the attack, Biden called her comments “a mischaracterization of my position.”

Taste of whats to come

Kamala Harris is undoubtedly an ambitious achiever, focused, and will become a political beacon for a radical brand of progressive socialism emerging within the party, commanding the policy agenda to unite behind.

In any case congratulations to Kamala Harris.

No, it won't. He's going to lose by a landslide. Truth hurts, don't it.

...and then Kamala tears him apart while Pence suffers brain freeze from having a rebuttal on the spot. Impossible for a rock.

Harris doesn’t have the appeal like Michelle Obama or even Bernie.

Yah, she does. You just don't realize it, yet. and, Michelle is not running for any office. I like her as much as Kamala, tho', you're right, she's a wonderful woman, too.

Kamala Harris is a master stroke from Biden, he not only gets the Indian American votes too, trump's already depleted voter base is depleting even faster!!!

trump should have gone with Nikki Haley, he could have got at least a few votes that way.

Pence, the unmasked disease fighter must be sweating in his pants.

As Barr knows well, once Kamala goes after you, all you can do is whimper and pray it'll be over.

Tulsi would have been a better choice. Remember Gabbard calmly took Harris to task over her prosecutorial past, pointing out that she was responsible for getting thousands of African-Americans locked up on draconian drug sentences(while she herself smoked pot) , even as Democrats clamored for criminal justice reform and racial justice. 

Harris the cop won't go over very well.

-8 ( +3 / -11 )

A dreadful choice.

Her record on continuing mass incarcerations of black Americans is a disgrace.

Have to laugh at the response from the Repubs, though:

The Trump campaign said the choice of running mate was proof that Mr Biden is "an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left".

She's about as radical as the cops beating down protesters.

Doubt it. Pence doesn’t have a record of breaking up families or incarcerating thousands of black men.

I look forward to debates

Kamala Harris's record which they think will hurt chances with most Democrats (which it will not) is what many Republican and conservative swing voters actually like. They also know that she will wipe the floor with their preferred cnadidates.

That is the pickled that the trump supporters are facing. They have to vilify Kamala Harris on ideas that they wish trump would do.

So, they have to continue to harp on these dream candidates that have no interest in the WH. It reminds of trump who likes to bring up his election win at every rally because there is not much substance!

She's a right winger, tough on crime shill who's been appointed to attract right wing votes.

She is tough on crime, and in that sense, more right than left. However, she is not a right winger. Her record on social justice is good. She is active in civil rights, but doesn't believe people who are criminals should get away with it. That doesn't make her a right winger.

She has been very vocal and a leading voice questioning Trump appointees as well as policy such as the separation of children at the borders, of which she was opposed to. It goes without question, her smart and tough questioning at senate hearings were of impact and great content.

She has fought against sexual harrassment, prosecuted predatory leaders protected students who are debt ridden, and taken a tough stance on consumer privacy issues. She is active in LGBTQ rights and is supported by progressive women and labor, with initiatives on environmental issues, a path to citizenship for undocumented individuals, protection for marriage equality and abortion rights.

She is not a right winger, as you say.

@kyronstavic

The reaction from Dems supporters to this story makes it clear that identity politics is a more important aspect of "Biden's" pick (like it was really up to him!) than anything else.

Or it means that Biden chose an ideal candidate that nullifies the "identity politics" that trump used rile up low educated and racist whites in his last election. The right is freaking out!

Seriously? If the VP pick had been anyone other than a non-white woman, the crazy faction of the DNC (which seems to comprise most of the party these days) would have gone ballistic. This has got identity politics written all over it. Given that Biden's cognition is failing, this puts the VP pick as a genuine chance at sitting in the Oval Office if Biden wins in November.

I just hope the Americans have enough sense to see through the far-left's attempted coup and prevent Biden-Harris from winning. Trump is far from perfect, but he's the best chance at keeping the socialists - who are even bigger liars than he is - from the gates and seeing an end to America's great experiment with a constitutional republic.

Requires adults working with child actors to pass a background check & get a permit

In 6 years 

No Hollywood publicist registered

Law ignored & nobody got punished

Even on that most critical point she did nothing to stop it and that alone should be a huge disqualification for her.

The only good thing for Biden choosing her is she’s more of a safe bet. For most blacks particularly in California won’t vote for her and to a certain point (very small point) she supports the NGD as well as eradicating private health insurance which doesn’t sit well with millions that have it. So choosing Harris is a gamble for sure, but on the race and gender part, Biden got his bases covered.

In the short run, Biden did a smart choice picking her over Susan Rice which would have been a disastrous killer for Biden and the Democrats, but Harris is safer, now if she can muster and get the black vote out in huge numbers, I doubt it, but this does open the lane wider for a Trump win.

I had hoped that Susan Rice would get picked, but Kamala Harris certainly gets my support. It really is too bad that Trump could not debate Harris. It would be utterly entertaining. Get I'll have to settle for Pence getting pounced. I freely admit that I am biased, I like "intelligent" people. Which is why I felt Trump was unfit well before his 2016 campaign started. I will forever hate the GOP for letting this happen.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Biden of course doesn't need help securing the black vote or California, so I guess he figures she gives him two things he badly needs:

Protection against sexual predator charges. Since she said she believed his accusers back when it didn't matter, she's now positioned to declare him "misunderstood" or grant him absolution. If any Democrat women had qualms about him because of that, she can now soothe them.

Some tough-on-crime cred. With most Democrat leaders telling whites to kneel before the BLM sword and pledge fealty, they desperately need to counter that. She gives Biden his "Sister Soulja" moment.

It's not much, but they (Dem establishment) didn't have any good choices.

Indians aren't keen in being seen as 'white adjacent' in the Social Justice movement just because they do well in society

https://newdiscourses.com/2020/06/open-letter-robin-diangelo-anti-racism/

She was unpopular when she was a prosecutor though because she was seen as punitive and performer badly

https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/01/kamala-harris-bad-on-criminal-justice/

Not likely actually Biden's choice but rather the DNC's anticipating that Ole Joe would have to be replaced in short order, and then the radical left would be poised to permanently destroy the USA.

I agree with you re' track record on policing police. Her track record in CA was dismal. She's probably a good running mate, but I fear the Trump camp is going to rip her to shred for her time as AG of CA (where a lot of police basically got away with murder)

I disagree with your assessment of her term as the California AG. My only point that as a life long prosecutor she is viewed by many in the Democratic Party as too law and order, and especially so for this particular point in time. I don't see the Republicans making any headway, especially among their party faithful, for attacking a DA / State AG for being an aggressive prosecutor. She will have the most problems with her own party.

Defunding the militarized police is a good start. I'd go further and call for the structure to be dismantled completely, like in the 6 counties.

Harris proposes a law similar to the Voting Rights Act that would require states with a history of undermining Roe to get pre-clearance before imposing any new abortion laws. She pledges to appoint pro-Roe judges and to undo the global gag rule. Harris has a strongly pro-abortion rights voting record, including co-sponsoring the Women's Health Protection Act and voting against a bill that would have limited abortion to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. She supports federal funding for family planning clinics such as Planned Parenthood.

As much I want Trump gone the reality is that the next election will again depend on the swing States and the independent voters in those States.

Can Harris bring in those voters?

Even before Biden made his choice polls in those States showed that many of these independent voters we're already not happy that he limited his choice based on gender.

The Democratic party's thinking is that Harris will bring in or boost the moderate and black vote the only problem is that those voters or not the independent swing state voters, the same people that would not vote for Clinton.

Far too many people are counting on the vote being anti Trump unfortunately I am not convinced.

I truly hope I am wrong and that somehow Americans will regain some sanity and get rid of Trump.

Do not confuse independent voters and swing state independent voters.

Most independent voters or not the decision-makers it is the swing States independent voters is that again will decide the election.

Top of my wish list is for Kamala to stiffen Biden's backbone to go after the criminal duumvirate of "the law 'n' order Lone Ranger", Trump, and his venal side-kick Barr after the January inauguration and flex her prosecutorial muscle to lock 'em up to show the American people that justice still matters, as former prosecutor, Glenn Kirschner, always insists.

Maybe it would be too much to ask that Kamala also show some contrition for the harm she did with her overzealous prosecution of marijuana offenders and put her liberal cred on display by pushing for legalization and amnesty for the tens of thousands of incarcerated drug offenders.

Why would you hope Biden wins? You want higher taxes, a deep economic depression, a New World Order with China at the helm and defunding of the police? 

A second term Trump will be in bed with China. Trump will milk it for all its worth for him and himself. Trump builds up the China problem and he will want to show he is the one who brings in China into the corral.

The fact is the CCP needs the west as a threat to help consolidate its power over the Chinese, and Trump needs China as an enemy to help win votes. The public is easily sold.

Kamala Harris will be much tougher on China than Trump who’ll be looking for deals in his second term.

That is absolutely false. No President has been hard on China not a single one except Trump, even Chuck Schumer of all people praised Trump on pushing back on China. Biden would never, ever do that and neither would Harris which is why in part Wall St. does like her.

The fact is the CCP needs the west as a threat to help consolidate its power over the Chinese, and Trump needs China as an enemy to help win votes. The public is easily sold. 

What?

Kamala Harris will be much tougher on China

No, she will not, even Sanders would be tougher and that’s a fact as much as it pains me to admit that.

When the flimsy Dem euphoria over Biden’s pick dissipates it will be realized that choosing Harris was a mistake.

Nope. It makes the ticket stronger. You're not going to change minds of the white Trump uneducated, no matter who runs with Biden. She will sway women, and those who cast their votes on record and accomplishment, over petty bias. Her relative youth, strength and knowledge is a plus for American when she takes office of the Vice Presidency in January.

She is an outstanding critical thinker with a great legal mind.
