Hail, Hail Kamala Harris!

Joe Biden Has Picked a Winner

A Brief Comment by Doug Draper

Posted August 11th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

Joe Biden does right in his pick of California Senator Kamala Harris as a presidential running mate. For those of us praying for the day Trump is fired out of the Oval Office, let’s wish Biden and Harris the very best.

For people around the world who have been holding their breath, hoping that the U.S. Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential candidate Joe Biden would pick the best person possible to help sweep the orange monster from office this November, Biden could hardly have done better this August 11th in his choice of California Senator Kamala Harris.

Biden’s choice of Kamala Harris as his vice-presidential running mate makes history in a country that has had more of its share of problems giving a fair shot to women and to people of colour

Kamala Harris is the first woman of colour in the close to 250-year history of the United States to run for vice president.

She is also, for many of us who have, for better or worse, been following American politics in recent years, charismatic, highly intelligent, a person of passion of fairness and passion when it comes to fellow citizens in need, and someone who can be as sharp and as tough as she needs to be with adversaries.

It may be that Kamala Harris’s book about her life up to now makes a sudden re-appearance on the top ten on the New York Times best-selling books list.

She is also someone who, when time comes (a date has already been set for October 7th) to debate Trump’s shameless, sycophant of a V.P., Mike Pence, has demonstrated all of the qualifications necessary to eat him for lunch.

Her background skills as a prosecuting lawyer, an attorney general of California and as a U.S. senator who was as tough as they come when it came to questioning some of Trump’s God-awful picks for high office, are just what are needed in a campaign against a Trump juggernaut guaranteed to play dirty.

Her charisma, her passion, her intelligence and ability to punch hard, if necessary, will be needed at a time when the future of her country, and possibly the whole planet, hang in the balance.

Hail, hail, Kamala Harris!

One response to “Hail, Hail Kamala Harris!

  1. Sorry I must disagree. Kamala Harris is a Company Person, in that she prosecuted the poor, the homeless, the drug addicted. She put people behind bars, sometimes gleefully. She is to the right of the middle of the road. Biden is very distasteful, a good old boy and worse. Harris is a person who has denied many prisoners their constitutional rights, gone after prosecutions for the wrongly accused and laughed at people in the courts. Here is an article from the NYTimes all about the real Harris:https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/17/opinion/kamala-harris-criminal-justice.html
