For John, BLUF: I think the American voting population is not hesitant about a woman President, or a Black President (although I think of Senator as being Indian, as in Sub-Continent), but they are not interested in novelty for novelty's sake. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Daily Wire, by Mr Ashe Schow, 16 November 2019.
Here is the lede plus three:
As Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) campaign for her party’s presidential nomination continues to implode, some in the media are looking for answers.And there you are. If Senator Harris can,t be nominated, it is on the Democrats, not on America as a whole.
ABC News shot first, asking if Harris “proof that America isn’t ready for a woman of color as president?" The article began with quotes from Harris making the argument herself.
She had previously spoken about her “electability” several times, and in May she went ahead and wondered whether “America was ready for a woman and a woman of color to be president of the United State of America.” She made the claim on “The View.” This statement set her mmmmup with the tired and ready-made excuse in case she lost the primary: It’s because America is racist and misogynist.
Of course, that ignores the two elections of former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 nomination. It also ignores the fact that she is currently in a Democratic primary, meaning the people she is calling racist and sexist are her fellow Democrats. The point seemed lost on ABC as well, since it asked if “America” was ready for a black woman of president, when they were really asking if Democrats were ready for a black woman nominee.
We should acknowledge that what most recommends Senator Harris is the fact that Willie Brown likes her, or at least used to.
NB: Democratic Presidential Debate tonight.
