Kamala’s work here is done

 Kamala’s work here is done



Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris has been as disappointing a vice president as she was a presidential candidate and a senator before that. There’s a reason she couldn’t even win over her home state of California during the 2020 Democratic primary. She’s unlikeable and uninspiring to just about everyone except for the type of liberal bourgeois who likes to think they’re contributing to progressivism because they donate to the ACLU and have one minority friend.

President Joe Biden is the best example of this group. When he’s not lying about being arrested at a civil rights demonstration in the ’60s, he’s busy elevating to positions of authority people whose only qualification for the job is their sex, skin color, or sexual orientation — with bonus points to those who meet the correct criteria for all three. (Looking at you, Karine Jean-Pierre!)

But it turns out that preemptively limiting a pool of candidates just to prove a point is a great way to get stuck with some really bad options. Would Harris have ever been considered for the vice presidency had Biden not declared on the campaign trail that he would make a black female his vice president? Of course not. But he did, and his team pushed him toward Harris because, well, at least she wasn’t Stacey Abrams.

Now Biden’s team is desperately trying to fix the mess it created by inviting Harris into the White House. Her office is a revolving door of staffers, her approval ratings are consistently in the dumps, and even her allies agree she’s incapable of finding something — anything — in politics that she’s good at. Here’s a brutal quote from the New York Times: 

But the painful reality for Ms. Harris is that in private conversations over the last few months, dozens of Democrats in the White House, on Capitol Hill and around the nation — including some who helped put her on the party’s 2020 ticket — said she had not risen to the challenge of proving herself as a future leader of the party, much less the country. Even some Democrats whom her own advisers referred reporters to for supportive quotes confided privately that they had lost hope in her.

It seems inevitable Biden will try to drop Harris from his 2024 ticket. Why keep her around? She’s already served her purpose. As the New York Times put it, she “made history” — or, rather, she helped Biden “make history” — by becoming the first black female vice president. That was the only reason she was chosen, and it was all Biden’s team needed. Now, she’s just dragging him down, especially as his age becomes an increasing point of concern among voters.

But the reason Biden’s team chose Harris in the first place is the reason they’ll be stuck with her. After all, does Biden really want to be known as the white man who booted the first black female vice president from a chance at the presidency?
