Yesterday former Joe Biden chose a woman of color to be his vice presidential running mate, senator Kamala Harris of California.
I spotted Senator Harris as a future political force when she was the attorney general of California. I knew we would be seeing a lot of her on the national stage.
Of course I was disappointed when her presidential run didn't catch on but I didn't count her out. I was worried that Biden would not pick a woman of color as his running mate, listening to the likes an old white dinosaur like former senator Chis Dodd, who was on Biden's vice presidential vetting committee. Dodd said Kamala was "too ambitious." Excuse me? "Too ambitious?" Since when is being "too ambitious" a negative? Perhaps to an old dinosaur like former Senator Chris Dodd, with all that white hair. Thank God Biden didn't listen to that horrible advice.
The picture above is of me and Delaware's lone representative in Congress, Lisa Blunt Rochester. Last year Representative Rochester attended a function at the hotel where I work part-time in Lewes, Delaware. She graciously accepted my request to have a photo taken with her. I haven't met Senator Harris in person yet but I hope to in the future. Joe Biden has a home nearby the hotel and hopefully Senator Harris will stay at our hotel sometime during the next three months of the presidential campaign. When she does you can be sure I'll ask to have a selfie taken with her!
In the meantime, I'm sleeping a lot better at night knowing that the reign of incompetence, corruption and malfeasance of the thug Trump administration is about to come to an end.
Have a great day everyone!
