"Proud daddy on his way to a doctorate in economics at Berkeley. (April 1965)" (Courtesy of Kamala Harris)



"My favorite pleather jacket at age seven. (December 1971)" (Courtesy of Kamala Harris)



"Hanging out with my family in Jamaica. Maya is off to the right." (Courtesy of Kamala Harris)



"During my freshman year at Howard University, almost every weekend was spent at the Mall protesting apartheid and calling for divestment. Here I am with Gwen Whitfield. (November 1982)" (Courtesy of Kamala Harris)

6. {GASP!} She wore pleather?

That's it, her career is over. Don't bother to ask how it works, it just does: Any aspiring politician who ever wore pleather is automatically and irrevocably consigned to Not A Serious Person status. Same goes for having family lore that includes Native American heritage. Not likable.

Game over, man!

There. Now nobody has to go on Fox and say these stupid things.

47. that reminded me of the Howard Dean holler.

Once upon a time, the tiniest (even imagined) faux pas could end your run for president. And yes, pleather could have seriously hindered your ambitions. But now that the porn star loving bankrupt orangutan hit the scene it's all good now, right?

38. Fox and America First will soon offer you a dumptruck full of cash

Tell 'em you know about lots of dirt.


After they give you the cash, tell 'em about diapers and playgrounds.

21. Yes...

...especially how she handled McCain's question about AOC. Very even handed and thoughtful. "Don't be afraid of new ideas; defend the status quo when it deserves defending".

It's a long time to an actual primary, but I could get excited about this woman.

15. she's got my primary vote already

It was said that dems do better with the most inspiring candidate, not necessarily most qualified. She would energize the base like nobody else guaranteeing massive turnout. The female Obama. Part of the excitement is that she is relatively new to most of americans and the media loves her.

Beto or Joe Kennedy as VP.

But I sure would like it if she was on it. President or Vice President, either one. But it would be nice if she were at the top of the ticket.
