Remember that time Sen. Kamala Harris ran for president? If you do, you might also remember the time she stuck a knife in front-runner Joe Biden’s back over segregation and busing. It was a really effective attack, and her campaign even had the T-shirts ready to go the moment she dropped the line live on TV.

An upcoming book by two New York Times reporters says that first lady Jill Biden was unhappy with whoever chose Harris to be Biden’s running mate (we doubt it was Joe) because there were millions of the people in the U.S. who hadn’t attacked him during the primaries.

The Hill reports:

The book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” from Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns, specifically reveals Harris’s concerns with her portfolio, according to excerpts obtained by Politico.

Martin and Burns also report that first lady Jill Biden was unhappy with the choice for Harris as vice president.

“Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, the future first lady posed a pointed question. There are millions of people in the United States, she began. Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”

The book also notes other tensions between the Biden and Harris camps.

Good point. We’d forgotten about that.

It was only October when Democratic donors started pushing for Pete Buttigieg to replace Harris on the ticket for 2024.
