    I don't think she'll be an asset to his campaign.

    She's great! She will certainly be an asset to his ticket, and will help him get elected, no doubt. I look forward to her presidency, once Biden steps down due to failing health, as he will.

    Restoring respect to the presidency, and removing the US from laughing stock status on the world stage, is something I am looking forward to.

    The above are my beliefs. I will not get into debates, in here, concerning the same. A question was asked, I answered it. That's it..............

    Biden seriously needs someone to debate Mike Pence in October and to use Biden’s own words, he may need her to step in any time to assume his position.

    The first item is a given that she is a fearless debater but why she was the pick noting that she only gleaned 1% of the voter base when she ran for the DNC presidential nod is confusing.
    According to her when she campaigned in Nevada, if she did get the DNC nod she would be the first female Asian-American to be the President and not an African-American female which is what the VP pick was supposed to be based on.

    I know Biden is having some mental issues but it would appear that the entire DNC is having them too because in my way of reasoning, he didn’t have much to say about the pick and for the DNC to force her through, with her background, is insane at best.

    To me, the only hope Biden and Harris have is if there are more people who simply hate D. Trump and will vote for anyone but him.

    I don't know much about her except for seeing a debate where she went after Biden pretty hard. .Asian or African American she'll pull the black vote.

    True.
    The fact that she’s a female will help also with those who vote with emotion rather than sense. I’m sure it was Hillary who said that it was time for a woman president which told the public that she was counting on people voting for her simply because of her gender.

    Yeah, I guess that there are a myriad of reasons for voting for the duo but none of which I can think of that makes any sense to those who like to study the candidates.
    I mean, how many people voted for JFK because he was Roman Catholic or even Reagan for the California governorship because he was a movie star?

    Harris is no more an African-American than Elizabeth Warren is Native American. Her mother is from India, so she is part Asian, but her father is from Jamaica, and his family owned plantations and slaves there. There is question whether she is even legal to run for the office of Vice President (or president) , since it appears that her parents were here on student visas when she was born, making Kamala basically an “anchor baby”.

    But the USA has "birthright citizenship," so her parentage doesn't matter. She is a citizen. That's the whole point of the anchor baby thing; they are automatic citizens.

    After only a small bit of research, I’m getting a lot of legalese that runs both ways.
    I’m sure that the DNC has already run the situation by a staff of constitutional attorneys but still, at the present time a writ of citizenship is still being looked into.
    Perhaps John Roberts will have to step in just as he did prior to Obama getting the nod.

    She was born in Oakland, California 10 years after I graduated high school there.
    She and Biden have no chance unless the Tibetans can rig the election in their favor.

    I'd like to go completely off-topic and tell my Oakland story. I was living in Berkeley and used to walk down Telegraph Ave into Oakland. One day I walked into a bar - The White Horse Tavern. Now this bar was known throughout the area and across the country as a gay bar. I didn't know a gay bar from Adam.

    So I'm sitting there drinking my beer and everybody's very friendly.. Very,very friendly. A guy walks up to the bar close to me and asks "Where are all the girls?"

    I'm thinking "Where ARE all the girls?". Then I look around behind me and see several couples slow dancing. All men. With my long hair and earring I figured I better not hang around and scooted out of there back to Berkeley. The guy who was putting me up laughed and laughed when I told him. It was a little traumatic for a small town boy.

    No one that has any knowledge of our citizenship requirements,has any doubt that she is an American Citizen. She emerged into life on US soil. Thats it folks, plain and simple! What yall gonna start another birther-ism storm.
    Find me a Supreme Court decision denying a person born on American soil under any circumstance natural citizenship? Waiting!

    Are you missing part of the history of the DNC presidential run Pete? Has all the folks trying to erase history gone as far as erasing your own memory? Harris was a presidential candidate who........debated against Biden and a bunch of others.

    Your throwing a lot of “crap” around today and maybe you need to get your own facts straight before coming on board and looking absolutely clueless.
