I’ve been too busy to write another full post this afternoon, and will be for awhile.
But I thought I’d give you a place to discuss Joe Biden’s decision to name Kamala Harris as his running mate.
A couple of you have mentioned it already on other posts. For instance, Randle said:
Biden chose wisely. Not my first choice, but it gives us another window into his character. No grudges, a willingness to accept criticism and no fear of an “ambitious “ woman. Onward.
That says it well. It’s so much a part of who Joe is that he dismissed my biggest objection to her — her particularly egregious attempt to sabotage him in that first debate. Joe doesn’t care. Maybe I shouldn’t, either.
But now that I’m faced with it, I realize that was more or less my only objection. By contrast, I had many profound objections to Elizabeth Warren, and we all dodged a number of bullets when he didn’t name Susan Rice. I was worrying again about her just this morning. In a piece that was pretty much a roadmap to the problems the GOP could have thrown at her, Bret Stephens reminded me why she was my least-favorite member of Obama’s national security team.
So, welcome, Kamala. Let’s get this done now.
If y’all start discussing it, I’ll join in later….
