Dems just had a primary and HArris got , like 10 votes (hyperbole but you get the point-). This despite going up against a pathetically weak field .
Democrats seemed to have no interest in her.
Can you explain what she brings to the ticket?

She can be bought. Why, a free BMW will get her support, so not only can she be bought, but she can be bought cheaply. That's a huge plus if you're a democrat.

You must be really bored, the only thing that matters now is the general election.

You confuse the idea that she was not the preferred candidate out of a crowded field with the idea no one is interested with her. You are desperately trying to spin a narrative based on a stupid lack of logic.

Just because Trump makes a fool out of himself talking about her primary performance doesn't mean you have to copy him. He will pat you on the head for your efforts anyway.

She dropped out of the race on December 3 - more than two months before the first primary.

Why do you want to have people think you like to humiliate yourself?

By your logic, Biden should have picked Bernie, and then we could have had two old white men, one of them with demonstrable health problems. And wouldn't that have been inspiring. Even that aside, you need the two to be able to work together, and honestly I'm not confident they could have.

A general election ticket is an entirely different dynamic than a field of Primary candidates. If the field of Primary candidates was his pool of options, then Kamala was a solid choice for what she brings to the ticket.

Harris is corrupt. Her and Biden aren't going to bring much sincere change IMO, but while the Democratic party is about as honest as Republicans, I do believe they recognize their base's shift towards more socialistic/libleft values.

People on all sides are realizing that the 40 year old practice of Reaganism isn't compatible with the modern state of affairs.

Trickle down doesn't work. People want a more powerful voice to make change, and by definition, the liberal party accepts constant change while the conservative party stands to represent tradition.

That isn't how I see the Rep and Dem parties, that's only using the dictionary definitions of liberal and conservative.

These value systems aren't fully represented by their respective parties, but voting dem is a tiny step towards the liberal america I would like to see one day.

I personally don't like Harris as a person, but a decent portion of Trump supporters were only voting against Hillary. Same as I'm having to do now.

Most members of political parties are deeply unsatisfied with the representatives they can vote for.

Harris used to support the criminalization of marijuana, now she says she's ready to fight for the humanization of nonviolent petty drug criminals. I'm not taking her word for it, but it's a more realistic glimmer of hope than anything Trump has provided.

Let's not forget the spray-tanned car salesman himself used to be a Democrat.

Most politicians are full of sh*t, but I do believe they understand that they can't get reelected unless they do at least some of what they're told.

I'm hardly voting for Biden himself, I just think the members of the Democratic party sound less crazy than the members of the Republican party.

I'm not a Democrat, but she is the only one of the four presidential/VP candidates with a positive approval rating.

Here's some data from the link in the thread started immediately after yours. Examine the numbers, and I think you'll see the wisdom of Biden's pick in Harris.

So far, Harris’s presence on the Democratic ticket appears to have helped Biden. Forty-seven percent of registered voters rate Harris as an “excellent” or “good” choice — significantly more than the number who felt the same about 2016 Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine (35 percent) or 2016 Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence (37 percent), according to Gallup.

Trump and other Republicans have tried to characterize Harris as too liberal or even “radical” for America, but the blows do not seem to be landing. Just 30 percent of registered voters — nearly all of them Republicans — see Harris as a radical; even fewer (22 percent) believe she is “the most liberal person in the U.S. Senate,” as Trump claimed last week. (The evidence for that is ambiguous.)

Instead, more registered voters say Harris is “moderate” (19 percent) than say the same about Trump (15 percent) or Pence (9 percent). A full third (33 percent) consider Biden moderate. Harris’s favorability rating (46 percent) also exceeds Trump’s (42 percent) and Pence’s (40 percent), and registered voters are just as likely to say that Harris is ready for the presidency as Pence (44 percent).

I did. That you cannot comprehend how you are spinning in a deceptive fashion is not my fault, it is your own.

Did Pence even run? Lets compare his primary support with Harris'

Well -that's the point. Why didn't he pick an unknown( Rice? Michelle) vs a known loser?

Despite the red states' typical desperate attempts to make it difficult for them to vote, people of color will climb over broken glass to vote Biden/Harris this November because she's on the ticket. She's a great orator, a skilled prosecutor, and she'll have beta-boy Pence wetting his trou and sulking in the corner. If Biden experiences any health issues, she'll be ready on day one to be president. <---- I'm sure that's what has ignorant, hateful bigots shaking in their boots, most of all :)

That's what Harris brings to the ticket.

You're welcome!

She doesn't bring trump or pence to the ticket, good enough for me.

And yes, hyperbole, we do indeed get the point. Most posts by R's are almost pure hyperbole. Who from the democrats is going to jail this week? Why does obama hate biden? Most dems are going to vote for trump this election. That sort of crap that you guys tell each other.
