Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), fresh from going from superstar to falling star in the Democrat presidential sweepstakes, seems to be looking for the next best result.
According to Rebecca Klar’s article at thehill.com:
Multiple Democratic officials familiar with the California senator’s deliberations told the Times she’s weighing the option of backing her former primary opponent.
Politically, this is not at all a bad move for Ms. Harris. If – IF – Joe Biden winds up with the Democrat nomination, he would benefit from a West Coast running mate, a female running mate and a minority running mate. In Kamala Harris, he would hit for the trifecta.
And if Biden should not make it, what has Ms. Harris lost? Nothing her ill-fated presidential run didn’t lose for her already.
Barring some really bad news for Mr. Biden, which would take his presidential hopes down a few notches (and, given the financial dealings of his son and brothers there is a strong possibility such news is coming) don’t be surprised if Kamala Harris is on board.
