 'It's infuriating': Kamala Harris team galled by Biden veep talk

The focus on her as vice presidential material is seen by some allies as sexist.

Kamala Harris used humor to swat aside the chatter about her becoming Joe Biden’s running mate: Maybe it should be the other way around, she said Wednesday, given Biden’s experience in the No. 2 job.

But inside her campaign and among allies, such talk is not a laughing matter. They're rankled by the suggestion, privately venting that it’s demeaning to a woman of color and perpetuates an unfair critique that she’s somehow not prepared for the job she’s actually seeking.

"It's infuriating," a Harris confidant fumed several days before the idea began taking hold in the media.

Since then, the chorus of Democrats sizing up her run and concluding she’d be perfect as Biden’s running mate has rapidly gone from whisper campaign to national narrative. They include some fans of the California senator: Last week, members of the influential Congressional Black Caucus floated Biden and Harris as a “dream ticket.” That put her in the uncomfortable spot of trying to delicately push back on it without offending the group, of which she’s a member.

As long as any man is around she'll always be second best.
I will NOT comply.

A while back, in another thread, I wondered if he would choose her as a running mate and announce his intention to be a one-termer. Since then, he’s said he’d run for two, if elected, but I still believe he won’t.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Harris can get upset all she wants.  She is a one percenter at best!
