Now imagine if the Republicans were to field a primary challenge!

Given the last crop of failures they offered. . . .

But she's popular in California, and California just moved up their primary to March 3. This directly benefits Harris, she'll be the most popular clown in the car.

I would have to recheck, but a few years ago, it was mathematically impossible for the election to NOT be decided before California. In other words, there is no combination of the states prior to the Left Coast that does not end up with a majority assuming two candidates.

If a Republican wins California, it is a landslide.

Sort of why it always comes down to, say, Ohio.

Men really want to vote for one of the Chief Inquisitors of the Kavanaugh witch hunt.

No, no, and no again.

You should be disqualified from any political office for that farce.

Is this the official Kamala thread (at least for now)?

Kamala Harris Destroyed Black Lives
Black Agenda (this is historically a leftist outfit)
Harris has spent her career locking up Black and brown people. She should not be allowed to shake hands, kiss babies or walk into black churches without being taken to task.

California Senator Kamala Harris shows all the signs of announcing her candidacy for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. She is giving speeches in the right states, interviewing with the right talking heads, and recently published the obligatory memoir. She has been on the Democratic funder’scasting couch for nearly two years. Only the official announcement is missing.

But Harris is highly problematic for black voters, perhaps more so than any other candidate. She served as the district attorney of San Francisco and later as attorney general of California. In both roles she did everything in her power to support the mass incarceration system and all of its foundations. That is what prosecutors do after all, but most of them don’t try to run for president and ask for black people’s votes.

Hearing some more pushback against Kampala Harris from the left about her career as a prosecutor. To be clear, not the fact that she was a prosecutor itself, but that she was more focused on getting convictions than on making sure that the people convicted were actually guilty.

To be honest I didn't get the sense that it was coming from minions of a rival candidate.

Allegedly not black "enough" see?

Like Obama, right?

Nothing so crude as "not black enough".

More like "not progressive enough".

Bill Clinton was once a state attorney general. He's the only one I think.

You refer to what people might say in public.

As with Obama, it will not matter.
