I try not to get too upset about politics, since there is little I can do about them and honestly they hardly impact me. But I was brought up to think there is a duty to at least discuss issues in a democracy, and I also was filled with respect for ideals which made America the hope of the world.
So I will put in a plug about how impressed I am with Kamala Harris. In interviews she seems to think before she speaks, actually answers questions instead of just spouting talking points, and all in all seems to be intelligent, well informed, centrist, and balanced. I am tired of old people who tend to be very shrewish and inflexible. I think many of the Democrats are qualified and would fill an administration wonderfully.
But Kamala Harris has a welcome nasty streak which will be necessary in this election. Trump is making it “us against them”, where his “us” is a corrupt mob of increasingly proto-fascist self-entitled bumpkins. It is going to take someone who can fire up our opposition into an almost equivalent frenzy to match his attempt at grabbing dictatorial powers. Every vote from everyone opposed to the loss of our values, virtues, and historic mission will need to be mobilized to defeat this threat. Kamala Harris seems to have the best chance of doing so.
