Why Harris?

Why Harris? By Steven Hayward.

I think Biden chose her for the same reason John McCain chose Sarah Palin in 2008: to close the “enthusiasm gap” between him and Trump.

Surveys consistently show that Democratic voters are distinctly unenthusiastic about Biden, and the progressive left is critical of many of Biden’s positions. But the progressive left Democratic base mostly loves Harris (except for that prosecuting criminals part of her past).
