Kamala Harris â€¦ the most powerful VP â€¦ riiiiiiight.
The harder they work at making Kamala a thing, the more people seem to reject her. Itâ€™s almost as if Kamala really and truly is a horrible, unlikable, harpy from Hell who couldnâ€™t even win her own state during the Democratic primary.
This is what happens when you select someone for an important role because they check the right â€˜identityâ€™ boxes.
Kamala Harris: Most powerful vice president since Richard Nixon. Yes, really https://t.co/qsPYYvUW4z
â€” Salon (@Salon) December 19, 2021
From Salon (sorry!):
Perhaps not many â€” but Harrisâ€™ unique status is no secret. No woman has ever previously held national elected office, nor has any person of Asian ancestry. Harris is also the first Black vice president, a fact which obviously leaves her somewhat in the shadow of Barack Obama. As a recent Daily Beast article points out, Harris is held to aÂ double standard, and her sinking poll numbers and hostile press coverage seem to reflect that.
The symbolic significance of a Black woman with multiethnic heritage presiding over a 50-50 Senate still largely comprised of white men is impossible to miss. Harris has literally tilted the balance of power toward the Democrats with her tie-breaking votes, and vice-presidential history suggests she could also do so in a more profound way. Thatâ€™s where Richard Nixon comes in.
Yeah, we canâ€™t include any more than that.

Raising your voice at staffers does not equate to being powerful, just say'n.

Itâ€™s the broad Biden picked because she checked the right boxes.
