I am not surprised about this decision, as I thought the final pick was between Kamala and Susan Rice.

Her record and history on Criminal Justice and generally Policing The Police has shown she’s happy enough to follow the status quo, so no real shock there. I think she will easily avoid saying anything stupid and will make herself look capable enough, which at this rate is all her and Biden need to do tbh.

You've gone on about "black" for a lot of your posts. She didn't get the job based on her skin colour.

...I’m not hugely up on American politics in general but I read a bit about her and she seems okay...I think it was Leon who said that she seems like a follow the status quote, type person and that seems to be the best that politics offers atm...good luck to her and congratulations on her new position...hopefully she’ll do her country proud.....

is it better than the Trump/Pence combination? Honestly, i think it's a toss up, but I feel that Biden/Harris are more likely to at least adhere to the constitution and be much less divisive ... so that gets them a tick from me, but then, i'm not American .... They have had so much crap to deal with over the last few years and the last 6 months have been a nightmare and, that to me will shape everything

Not a huge fan of KH, but not a terrible choice.

Fox news doing what fox news does.

An uninspiring choice but I'm glad it's not Elizabeth Warren, at least. Hopefully Kamala lives up to her stances and actually pulls for police reform.

Trump is one of the worst presidents in US history and possibly one of the worst world leaders in human history. I don't see how anyone could think that Biden and Harris could be worse.

So far Trump has called her a horrible nasty woman and Biden is being called a racist ..... Then we have the Trump campaign who simultaneously said that she would be soft on crime and law and order while criticising her for being too tough as a prosecutor ..... and that's day 1

It's going to get crazier, Trump's fighting for his life at this point. If he loses, him and a number of his kids are likely heading to prison.

...White House adviser, Jenna Ellis, has said that Kamala Harris sounds like Marge Simpson.../...like a cartoon character...


...so it all just got serious with Marge stepping her political foot into the arena...
