It wouldn’t be a bad move to have her as Joe Biden’s Vice President….
But for the next year?
She’s running for the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination just like Joe Biden…
The intentions might be understandable — to be chosen as vice president is an honor, something that a black woman has never done before. But the argument that a black woman would be best positioned as the runner-up to a white man — who comes with quite a few liabilities — reinforces the idea that only white men are electable.

“Any member of Congress discussing a Joe Biden/Kamala Harris presidential ticket is showing extreme disrespect to Sen. Kamala Harris. Not one Dem debate has been held. Not one primary vote has been cast. Biden has not earned the nomination and Harris has not lost it. STOP IT.”
It is understandable that liberal lawmakers — and the voters they represent — want to see a Democrat replace President Trump in the Oval Office. It makes sense, too, that they see a diverse ticket as the best way to accomplish that goal. But Democratic primary voters should get a chance to decide what that ticket should look like….
