That's nuts. Honestly all things considered she is far and away the best VP pick. She is the best attacker in the Senate and will serve Pence a full dose of haymakers in any sort of debate. She could handle the presidency if needed and is the definition of sharp and with it, to offset the bleating about Joe's "confusion."

Personally, I like Duckworth the most, but I think Harris is far and away the best choice.

"Honestly all things considered she is far and away the best VP pick."

In a different time perhaps.

We're in an era of populism now, and Kamala Harris's strong record of railroading people as a prosecutor doesn't translate to being a highly effective leader any more.

It translates to her being a bitch.

She's not smooth. She's not chill. She's not cool. If Biden somehow gets in, she'd be a good appointee, but she's not going to help the ticket.

As I read the article, it seems to me that Mr Brown thinks she should not accept the possible VP offer because he thinks that Sen Harris is capable of far more than what the VP position offers.

He seems to view the VP position as an anchor around her future career prospects, that she could go further in the future should she be something like the AG in a possible Biden administration.

At this point, I wonder if Mr Biden has already chosen his VP candidate and it is not Sen Harris, and this ploy is a way for Sen Harris to save face.

Speculation is fun. :)

"Sen Harris is capable of far more than what the VP position offers."

I agree with this as well.
She'd seemingly be a strong Attorney General, what with that whole "railroading" thing she's good at.

Harris's political future pretty much ended when that insane vegan took the microphone out of her hand.

We can't have a head of state that gets walked over that easily or freezes up like bush.

@#5 ... a head of state that gets walked over that easily ...

While I agree with you sentiment, I'd also say that if she were VP, the opportunity for her to be "walked over" would not necessarily be present.

I do find it quite curious, however, that she felt so comfortable with that crowd that her security was so low.

A vice president must be ready to become president at a moment's notice.

It's happened over a half dozen times already.

The low security was also a bad idea. Never forget what happened to Bobby Kennedy.

Possibly.

A crazy man got with in arms reach of her.

That's exactly what happened to RFK.

@#9 ... Possibly? ...

Yes, possibly.

Security is the balancing of risks.

Her security could have put her behind a wall of bullet-proof plexiglass (or whatever is currently used as transparent bulletproof stuff nowadays). Or even a wall of bricks.

But behind a wall of bricks she would not be seen, only heard.

It is a balance. Accessibility vs security.

Sen Harris knew the risk and chose what she wanted to do.

In hindsight, she knew her audience. (important for me)

Sen Harris is still here with us today.

So, obviously, she had the balance correct.

Your turn. :)

Clearly she didn't know her audience since one of them displayed full blown Mark David Chapman traits.

Had he a weapon he wouldn't have hesitated to do worse to call attention to himself.

I've never bothered looking into how the hell RFKs assassin got a gun and I don't really need to. I see no reason to think America's Founders ever wanted kids convicts or crazies to have access to fire arms.

"I've never bothered looking into how the hell RFKs assassin got a gun and I don't really need to."

Assassin's gun
The Iver Johnson .22 caliber revolver that Sirhan Sirhan used to assassinate Robert F. Kennedy originated from Albert Leslie Hertz, a resident of Alhambra just south of Pasadena, California. He originally bought the gun to protect his own business during the 1965 Watts riots, but never used it and kept it in its original wrapping paper and box. Hertz's wife decided the gun was too dangerous and gave it to her daughter, Dana Westlake. Westlake did not use it and gave the gun to her next-door neighbor, George Erhard. Erhard later sold the gun to Sirhan Sirhan's brother, Munir Bishara Sirhan, known as "Joe", who George knew was working at Nash's department store at the corner of Arroyo and Colorado in Pasadena. At the time, Erhard was looking to seek more money from the gun sale to finance some work on his car.[58]

Well, you're at odds with about twenty years of Supreme Court decisions.

You're also at odds with the entire Republican party, who believes using guns to kill political tyrants is exactly what the Founders intended.

Kamala would make a good AG, as Brown said. Perhaps a perfect one to wash out the Augean stables of Trumps Justice Department.

But really, I think Mr. Brown is being a bit jealous.

I still think you are all missing the forest because of a few trees.

Point #1

Harris will be the best candidate to attack Trump (and Pence by proxy).

Point 2:

She could handle being president until the next election

Don't get your priorities twisted

If she doesn't get the VP slot, AG would be a step down from soon to be Senior Senator from California.

Hey Ira Schittsburg,

You've already used Clayton Bigsby as a "name" in your bio before. You also lied about being a Dem and a liberal before.

And weren't you already banned for claiming multiple times KH slept her way to the top, despite Rcade telling you to stop?

#26 | Posted by Danforth at 2020-08-10 02:59 AM | Reply | Newsworthy 2

"By using the word 'claiming' you imply that the KH sleeping her way to the top is a matter of opinion rather that a well established fact"

What a misogynist. You'd never judge a male that way; men are studs when they have affairs at work. Double-standards much?

And why do you lie about your party affiliation and philosophy on your landing page? Afraid of the truth, as usual?

"you cannot erase it."

Speaking about not being able to "erase it", how stupid is your claim Trump will get 20% of the black vote looking right now?

If you are a true #BLM ally, Kanye is your only choice.

Spoken like a true comrade. The only reason Kanye has been groomed by Trumpy is just another very transparent attempt to steal votes. We get it. Moscow supports Trumpy too.

Welcome comrade.

But leave your BS in Moscow please.

Thanks

Don't call it sleeping her way to the top if you want, but her VJ has created opportunities and opened doors for her. She wouldn't even be considered for VP without her VJ.

A man that sleeps with the boss to get a promotion would also be looked down upon.

What decade is it in your world that never actually existed except in the imagination of Marxist/Feminist professors?

Who said that was her goal? Just because it happened, doesn't mean it was HER idea. And what kind of workplace are you from, where the underlings call the shots?

Just admit you've got double-standards, and move on. As it is, you're just digging a deeper and deeper hole.

You're right. As a female Kamela was powerless to refuse his advances, lacking the ability to reason and not accountable or responsible.

KH is no good as VP. She was a typical fascist in her role as top cop but there is no way in Haides that Kanye West should be anywhere near public office. The guy is a egotistical nutcase, and would make the USA a laughing stock of the world. Maybe even more than we are with TRump. Two different nuts. I fail to see how he represents BLM? Just because he 'was' poor and black? When does he do anything for anybody other than his fat ass wife and himself?

"We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts."

Does BLM using comrade on their website indicate their are Russian?

Just watch the footage of Harris having her microphone taken away by a random white man again.

only way that could have been worse would have been if she called him "daddy".*

*I'm assuming they both keep their clothes on.

Lets hope he goes any other direction at all with that.
