I don't have a problem with Kamala Harris or anyone else, but it's kind of a weird process, to me, to say "I am only going to pick a black female as VP".

Now, I will admit I thought the same thing about Brett Kavanaugh. He mentioned that in an effort to increase female opportunities in the legal profession that he had the most female clerks.

So maybe it's not that bad? Maybe people in the privileged position have to go out of there way to select people in the oppressed or under-represented position? Kavanaugh picked more females at the expense of potentially more qualified males, and Biden is picking a black female at the expense of potentially better candidates.

Is it the same thing?
Or picking Pence to get the Christian vote because of your behavior.

Biden is locked in now. He has been saying his VP would be a woman of color since he won the nomination.

No he just said it would be a woman. He didn't say it would be a woman of color. I assume it will be Kamala Harris though, she's the obvious choice.

True. Guess I assumed since most of the conversation, not to mention the four women of color on his list of candidates, meant he was leaning in that direction.

Iíll be surprised if he doesnít go with a woman of color. Kamala Harris would be my guess as well.

I am almost certain it is going to be Kamala Harris. She has the most star power, energy, etc.

She is pretty active in the Senate too. She is the primary sponsor on a lot of proposed legislation, including:
  • Water for Tomorrow Act
  • Saving Our Street Act
  • Whistleblower Protection Act
  • Votesafe Act of 2020
  • Public Lands Act
  • Housing is Infrastructure Act of 2019
  • Preparing Superfund for Climate Change Act of 2019
  • Accountability for Utility Executives Act
  • Family Friendly Schools Act
  • Domestic Workers Bill of Rights Act
  • Accountability for Wall Street Executives Act
  • Fair Chance at Housing Act of 2019
  • 21st Century SKILLS Act
  • Focus on Children Act
  • Living Shorelines Act of 2019
  • Outdoors for All Act
  • 21st Century STEM for Girls and Underrepresented Minorities Act

And about 50 other pieces of proposed legislation in this and last congress.

Picking Harris is going to cost Biden a bunch of votes.
