I love Kamala Harris. As a California Democrat, I have voted for her in every statewide race she has ever run in, primary and general, for two terms as our amazing Attorney General and more recently as our Senator, where she has not disappointed. Love her lots. In a huge field she is my second choice.
I don’t have one bad word to say against her, and would enthusiastically support her in a second if my first choice drops out, but I do have one person I love even more — Elizabeth Warren who is, while hard to top Harris, even smarter, tougher and more articulate, and willing to stand up to Wall $treet. I had hoped she would run for 2016 and was so disappointed that she didn’t. As an actual Democrat, I believe she would have won the primary and the general if she had.
I have (and have actually read) both of Warren’s last two books. She is enormously intelligent, more than all others put together, is fiercely loyal to working people, cannot be bought by corporate money (is not accepting lobbyist or PAC donations), has stood up to the banks and Wall $treet elitists more aggressively than anyone else ever has (calling for prison sentences for those who profited by collapsing the markets in 2008 and specifically the top officers at Wells Fargo), knows the minutiae and most arcane technical details of the financial sector better than anyone (taught financial law at Harvard), and can articulate a message and stick with it. In my 48 years as a registered voter (never failing to vote), I have never been more energized by a candidate (or potential candidate).
One of the most important things, to me, is that she is admired by both Bernie and Hillary wings of the party and is the one person that could unify the current rift in the Democratic Party.
And who is Trump most threatened by? Have you ever seen Trump tweet an attack against Joe Biden? Kamala Harris? Bernie Sanders (who I supported in the 2016 primary)? No! He feels most threatened by Elizabeth Warren.
