Former Vice President Joe Biden made the biggest political decision of his long career in public service and the most significant one he’ll make until he’s inaugurated next January 20th – if he defeats President Donald Trump – by nominating Senator Kamala Harris to be his Vice President if elected.
Senator Harris shatters the glass ceiling for women by becoming the first African American and first Asian American to be nominated as a candidate for Vice President for a major political party. It’s high time that the United States government, should Vice President Biden win the presidency, truly reflect the American populace and not be an elderly Caucasian boy’s club. Senator Harris is 22 years Vice President Biden’s junior and symbolizes a generational shift in the mantle of leadership, and she could very well be the next leader of the Democratic Party. Vice President Biden had many qualified women on his shortlist, all of whom would have been ready to sit behind the Resolute Desk if duty called upon them to do so. However, by selecting Senator Harris, Vice President Biden has made the best possible choice for the Democratic ticket this year and the future of the Democratic Party.
