When you get a chance to make history . . . take it!

So I applaud Joe Biden for choosing California Senator Kamala Harris as his Democratic running mate.

No matter your ideology, it should make you proud to see the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants rise to the pinnacle of American politics.

That warm-hearted feeling is especially welcome in a season of such loss and general tumult.

“Charisma,” Defined

At least to me, the surprise wasn’t Harris’ selection.

Rather, it’s her height: only 5′ 2!”

Now, THAT’S charisma** . . .

P.S.: It speaks (very) well of Biden that he saw fit to choose Harris in spite of her attacks on him during the debates.

Can you imagine Donald Trump appointing a woman who dared to do that him, to a senior position in his administration??

**Also known as “presence,” “star power,” “stature,” etc.
