After prolonging the suspense a little longer than expected, Joe Biden has finally announced that Kamala Harris would accompany him on the ticket democrat.
Of all the candidates considered, the senator from California is the one that had the profile that is most reassuring in the current context. Repeatedly, I have pointed out its many qualities and skills. At 55 years old, she represents a new generation, an interesting compromise between the most progressive political training and the democrats closer to the center.
The former rival of Biden during the primary also presents a good road map and enough experience to strengthen the voters who question the health of the democratic candidate. His past attorney general of California and its numerous interventions, the Senate demonstrated that it will be difficult to shake during a future debate in the face of Mike Pence.
It seems that Kamala Harris was able to convince Joe Biden that it would be fair and that it has helped to fill the coffers of the campaign in California, it remains that it is a matter of choice rather clear and cautious.
Since he officially became the democratic candidate, Joe Biden is leading a campaign wise, he plays a defensive game. Most of the time confined to his basement, he tries to avoid the faux pas and would prefer to let Donald Trump get tangled in its brushes. Obviously, he and his team are satisfied with the surveys which indicate that in the past few weeks that we could very well expect more than a victory in the pivotal states usual.
Strategists the democrats know how to exploit cleverly an application that is already history. Kamala Harris is only the third woman whose name appears on a ticket as president, after those of Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and Sarah Palin in 2008. She became the first black woman, but also the first woman who was of indian origins. It is claimed with reason that Biden has delivered on its promises and that it has not been afraid to appoint a candidate strong and ambitious.
It must, however, recognize that the choice of Kamala Harris was quite agreed. If it was attempted to create a diversion or to test a few trial balloons here and there, few observers are surprised by the identity of the colistière. This selection comprises of little risk. It shows that Biden has good hopes of winning the race and that it wants to preserve its achievements.
Far from surprising, the choice of Kamala Harris indicates, finally, that the democratic candidate is already thinking of what he will do once elected. He comes to reassure many observers and it will be able to count on the collaboration of a talented woman who will be able to slowly start the preparation of the presidential 2024.
For once, the democrats presented a united front, their desire to overthrow Trump relegating their usual bickering in the background. If they stick together and they avoid the errors, however, one may wonder about the risks of a strategy as conservative in the aggregate. If the attack is not always the best defense, and they can sometimes force errors from the opponent, it is necessary to ensure, however, to score enough goals.
