Joe Biden is the front runner right now….
The media is pushing Elizabeth Warren ….
But Politico is running a piece that I believe is a very good view that have though off and mentioned here in passing….
Harris has two very strong going for here that I believe even Joe Biden knows….
She is mixed Black and East Indian…..
She reps California …..
The first will help her in pivotal South Carolina, where the black votes determines the winners there ….
California has moved its primary up to March, and that primary has the most delegates goin to the convention ….
She is 20 years younger than Biden….
But hold up….
There is a batch of problems that could derail her beating Biden….
Biden is well known and WILL collect wins in other high delegate states that have white Democratic middle class moderate voters….
Biden will also have an advantage of IOU’s from being Vice President and his travels around the country to help others….
There WILL be a fight for the black vote….
That fight will include Cory Booker and maybe others like Eric Holder and Deval Patrick which could split the vote , helping Biden….
While Harris has gone more to left than Biden?
Some blacks will side with someone they know is battle tested and worked with the nations first mixed race President…
This is being gamed out by the Harris people as the below linked Politico piece lays out…
The media will LOVE this….
May the best candidate win the nomination…

But as a black woman who has also won statewide elections in California — where the black proportion of the electorate is relatively small — Harris could be well positioned to compete in both the Southeast and the West.
If she runs, she will attempt to stitch together a coalition of Democrats in those swaths of the country — what one adviser described to POLITICO as “the SEC primary meets the West Coast offense.”…
