******BIDEN VP PICK KAMALA HARRIS thread 1*******

Last edited Tue Aug 11, 2020, 04:19 PM - Edit history (2)

I am happy and RELIEVED it is Kamala. If this has been fait accompli since she dropped out, them they have done a masterful job of turning this into a great media event and built the anticipation.

Trump may as well just hand the WH front door keys to Joe Biden & Michele Obama today & spare us all the traditional protocol bs.

Last edited Tue Aug 11, 2020, 05:08 PM - Edit history (1)

Edited to add: Congratulations to Senator Harris. I will support you with everything Iíve got.

==================


Honestly, I was a jubilant Hillary supporter but I thought the choice of Tim Kaine was a bad one. He had no fire, no pizazz. Definitely a smart guy, but I just felt he didnít fit Hillary.

I feel the same way about Kamala Harris in that I donít think she will compliment Biden. Kamala probably has a little too much fire.

I am hoping for Susan Rice.

Now, as I said, this is my last gripe. Whoever is chosen will be the one I support with every fiber of my being. No strife in the party. No division. Unity. Complete unity.
