The President Prosecutor?

Kamala Harris is a fantastic 2020 candidate and is likely the best choice for Democrats — but they may overlook her. Their loss.

Shocking news: we now have a lot of Democrats throwing their hat into the ring for the 2020 nomination! It’s no surprise that Democratic politicians are clearly excited for the 2020 election season — Donald Trump has historically low approval ratings that are (still) falling, even among his own base according to one NPR-PBS poll. His turbulent first two years in office, the longest shutdown on record (shameless self-promotion) and the 2018 Democratic wave have made Democrats particularly jumpy in vying for their party’s nomination. Their motives seem similar: of course, they may be fixated on being the next Saviour of America that finally drags his reckless administration into the grave — but it’s no doubt more likely that they just think they have a better chance of securing the office when the election finally swings around in November 2020.

“So, there’s a clear difference between the candidates in this race.”

Harris came back without missing a beat. It instantly elevated her to be the more mature, level-headed and adult-like of the two (even if it did show her boring side). Her spokesman, Nathan Click, later shut Sanchez down further: “Her dab was as weak as the rest of her debate performance”, he said, an almost unnecessarily harsh comment on a quite awkward mistake. Sanchez already had an established record of not scripting or planning her appearances, an approach which not all of California exactly warmed up to. Harris won by a landslide, 61.6% to 38.4%, and taking all but four of California’s counties (including Sanchez’s home Orange County). One thing’s for sure: she can handle herself well in any confrontation, a skill that will for sure come in handy for primary and national debates.
