Kamala Harris has been Vice President for two and a half years now, and she has had a poor public image, being often portrayed as weak and ineffective, in public opinion polls.
A lot of this is pure right wing propaganda, with heavy elements of misogyny and racism.
If one examines earlier Vice Presidents of the Republican variety, one realizes how horrendous they were:
Mike Pence, unwilling even now to stand up to Donald Trump for his transgressions, including the threat to the lives of Pence and his family on January 6, 2021.
Dick Cheney, technically qualified, but a miserable wretch of a human being.
Dan Quayle, a total disaster and embarrassment as Vice President.
Spiro Agnew, a crooked felon, forced out of office.
And then the Republican Vice Presidential nominees who, thankfully, never were in that role:
Sarah Palin 2008
Paul Ryan 2012
Jack Kemp 1996
William E Miller 1964
And then, the potential Vice Presidential list for Donald Trump, if he became the Presidential nominee again, a total nightmare of lunacy and insanity!
Meanwhile, Democratic Vice Presidents and nominees were superior by far:
Hubert Humphrey 1964
Edmund Muskie 1968
Sargent Shriver 1972
Walter Mondale 1976, 1980
Lloyd Bentsen 1988
Al Gore 1992, 1996
Joe Lieberman 2000
Joe Biden 2008, 2012
Tim Kaine 2016
The only terrible choices were Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and John Edwards in 2004.
Harris has had an impressive career in California Government, and has been, by necessity, the most active Vice President, due to the narrow division of the Senate, necessitating that she break more tie votes in the Senate than any Vice President, surpassing John C. Calhoun under President Andrew Jackson from 1829-1832, recently!
Harris is now becoming significant, as she makes the issues of women’s rights and civil rights the center of attention, including attacking the end of abortion rights, and the promotion of outrageous interference with the teaching of American history and slavery, as advocated by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and spreading nationwide in Republican states!
This is raising her profile, as she would certainly be the frontrunner to be President after Joe Biden, either when he leaves office, or if he was unable to finish his time in office!
