Clinton had the top spot from the jump….
But as I have said repeatedly here?
She seemed to NOT want to campaign for the Presidency….
She waited and waited….
She held small rallies….
She hid from the media….
She continued her history of make bad political judgements….
Noe of those things are Kamal Harris right now….
Harris has launched a smooth rollout campaign….
She has played to the media….
And she is pushing her name out among Democrats….
In doing her early moves she has moved from the middle of the second tier Democratic Presidential nomination candidates to the first group with Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders….
(She DOES have negative’s floating around in the background)
Sanders, this dog feels has no chance to get the nomination, he’s not even a Democrat…..
Joe Biden needs to come out and announce he’s running…..PERIOD….
THAT is a given….
Cause if he doesn’t (
(Remember Mario Cuomo’s last minute dropout and Biden dropping out twice before?)
A new US Senator of color could very well capture the Democratic Presidential nomination early on….
Kamala Harris is off to the fastest start among Democrats who have already entered the 2020 presidential race, say party strategists and donors closely following the contest’s early stages.
But she has surged ahead of the other contenders who are actually in the race — including Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Cory Booker(N.J), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.).
And in Iowa, an Emerson College poll shows her only behind Biden among caucus-goers.
Neither Biden nor Sanders has entered the race, and the polls showing them at the top of the contest likely reflects their widespread name recognition. Biden served eight years as vice president to Barack Obama after a long career in the Senate, while Sanders ran a tough campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2016 for the party’s presidential nomination.
Harris, in contrast, has not been on the national stage nearly as long. She was elected to the Senate in 2016 in a campaign that first brought her to national attention.
Democrats attribute her strong standing to a relatively seamless launch last month.
They say Harris largely beat her competitors to the punch in announcing a full-blown presidential campaign and capitalizing on the momentum which followed.
“There’s always been this motto, ‘You have one day to launch and you have to get it right,’ and Kamala crushed it,” said Robert Wolf, the prominent Democratic donor. “It’s the day that you have all the media buzz, the grass roots excitement and to tell your story. That is the one day all eyes are on you and she hit out of the ballpark.”
Maria Cardona, the Democratic strategist added: “She differentiates herself with her impeccable timing.”
“The others, unfair as it might seem, look like followers and like they are saying to themselves, ‘Oh, I better get in now before she gets all the attention,’” Cardona said. “It doesn’t mean that the others had bad launches, but it just means that she still stands out.”
