Or rather, Biden’s handlers told him who would be his running mate. Guess Susan Rice is out of the running because she may be under indictment in the near future (at least I hope so.)
A few reminders about Kamala:
1. Kamala Harris was born in California, but both her parents were immigrants. Her mother is from India, and her father is from Jamaica. Calling her an “African American” is a real stretch.
2. Kamala’s parents divorced when she was age 7, and she lived with her mother in Montreal, Quebec until she graduated from high school. She returned to the US to attend college (Howard University) and law school (University of California.)
3. Although Harris endorsed Biden’s Presidential candidacy, she characterized him as upholding racist politicians and policies just a few months ago.
4. Harris is married to a white lawyer, Douglas Emhoff. Married in 2014, she is stepmother to his two children.
James Clyburn selected Harris for Biden, and I’m sure that the Obama/Jarrett wing of the party is pleased.
