After running nearly two weeks past the deadline he set for himself to announce his VP, Joe Biden announced today that Senator Kamala Harris would be his running mate.
Biden had made it clear that a woman would be his running mate, and other potential picks included YouTube expert Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Tammy Duckworth, and Karen Bass. So in other words, as terrible a pick as Kamala is, it actually could’ve somehow been worse.
Harris does seem like an odd choice, especially considering the tense exchange she had with Biden on the debate stage over busing where she implied that he was a racist. And while she merely implied Biden was a racist, she was more definitive when it came to women accusing him of sexual misconduct.
