Kamala Harris As the Vice President of the United States of America

Kamala Harris is an attorney and a senior member of the Senate. She is the chairperson of the Select Committee on Intelligence, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and a member of the Joint Select Committee on Taxation. Kamala Harris is a black woman, thus making her the only first black women and Asian American to be Vice President of the United States. She is also the first out of all these to hold such high office in America. While serving as a Senator from California, she has also served as the Ranking member of the Homeland Security and Defense Committee, as well as ranking member of the Banking Committee.

While serving as the junior senator from Louisiana, Kamala Harris was not afraid to voice her opinions. She is one of the more outspoken members of the United States Senate. This trait has endeared her to millions of Americans who appreciate her tenacity in getting things done. The first black woman to become the junior vice president of the United States was Ella Gore, and while her run for the White House was considered nothing short of a joke, Kamala Harris has certainly surpassed her achievements.

When asked about a possible Vice Presidential run by Barack Obama, Kamala Harris sounded like she might take a hard pass. “There are a lot of people who talk about that and I’m not going to start now,” she said. Obama had made it clear that he was not planning to run for re-election as president, so Kamala was probably being forced to take this news as a compliment. Obama made similar comments to the media regarding Oprah Winfrey’s suggestion that she might run for president, though he has since backtracked on those statements. For anyone to assume that Obama will not run for re-election as president is simply silly.

With her strong background in the law and her tenacious approach in representing the people of California, Kamala Harris would be an excellent choice as a running mate for President Obama. She has proven her abilities as a fierce advocate for the people and the government. She has represented the people of California with a caring and sincere passion. Many people will look to Kamala Harris as an example of what the American public expects from their national and state leaders today. The nation would benefit from a woman with such earned experience in the national spotlight.

Obama and his political team know that if they win the election to become president in February of next year, they will have a lot of work ahead of them to deal with a Congress that will be split politically in their favor and that will be riven with rancor and gridlock. With the scandals and gridlock plaguing Washington, no president will have enough time to get his agenda through to both chambers of Congress and to the American people. It is an old and well-known maxim that government is only successful with the people who elect them. That doesn’t mean that Kamala Harris won’t to be a fine U.S. Senator for President of the United States of America in next November’s election.

Of all the possible vice presidential choices for President Obama, Kamala Harris presents the most unique and diverse personality. As a former circuit court judge and prosecutor, she already has a strong following of voters. This will make her a formidable opponent for any potential running mate. A person’s ability to handle the Congress and the executive branch must be a strong point. Kamala Harris has the right combination of political savvy, hard-earned experience and personal character. Obama and his political team know this is why they are eager to have her on their ticket as the first female U.S. attorney general.

If Obama is looking for a vice president that can make a difference in his second term as President of the United States of America, then Kamala Harris should be at the top of his list. She has already been through the political gauntlet of being a prospective vice presidential candidate, first lady, U.S. Senator and governor of California. She has proven time again that she has what it takes to be successful in her role as the new U.S. attorney general. It is a great honor to have such an accomplished woman on the presidential ticket. Her strong background as a prosecutor, trial lawyer, district attorney, judge and wife make her an excellent choice as our nation’s first black women supreme court justice. She has the right combination of skills and qualities to lead our nation.

This is a huge step forward in ensuring that women have a stronger hand in the justice system in the Untied States of America. We must continue to strive to correct the historic gender gaps in our country so that everyone has access to equal rights. One of America’s greatest strengths is its diversity and the fact that the U.S. constitution was written with a gender balanced constitution. Hopefully, by selecting Kamala Harris to be our vice president, we will continue to progress towards that goal.
