But this is exactly what I wouldn't like to see from her. Women usually lose when they use the same tactics as men.
Did you watch that clip above from her debate with Biden? That was not using male tactics. When she said “that little girl was me” brought tears to the eyes of this (relatively) old white man.

I doubt if she would raise either religion or family, but Pence shouldn’t either. If he does, she will be on him like a tonne of briques.

But what of Kamala Harris' character? She is on record as saying that she believes Joe Biden's accusers, yet is now happy to run with him. Add to that the way Ms Harris went after Justice Kavanaugh over similar accusations and this will be just one area of many lines of attack now open to the Donald Trump campaign.
I don't know what it says about Kamala, but I know what it says about Biden - he's not a petty small man who wouldn't recognise other people's merits just because they openly confronted him in the past. If he trusts her despite their disagreements, maybe that says something about her too.

More than anything, she should refrain from going after people's religious convictions or even mention anything related to them at all. It's up to her how high she'll want to go.
Um, Kamala doesn't lose, here are some fine examples:

This woman knows exactly what she is doing...with her tactility, she won't even touch Pence's religion. She will find plenty of ways to make him look like the idiot he is and I've got my popcorn ready.

In a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, Kanye West garnered 2 percent support overall among registered voters, 7 points behind the “no opinion” option.
His support among African American voters is just as meager — 2 percent — and Biden’s 9-point national lead over Trump is unmoved with or without West on the ballo

No surprise, he is not recognised to be a serious candidate.

I think it shows a lack of judgement on Joe Biden's part considering Kamala Harris' performances in the primary debates. Let's wait and see, still all to play for but my hunch at this stage is that President Trump will pull it out of the bag again.

FTFY.

Tom
Judging from the main sites that track this stuff, she isn't 'rich', she is relatively recently quite wealthy mostly thanks to her marriage and subsequent real estate investments that greatly increased in value. And yes, there is an acknowledged difference between being rich and wealthy.

Fair enough but I think that identity poltics set a dangerous precedent and create more polarisation. Although perhaps it is inevitable.

A woman who accused him of being a predator gets to be his VP?

And she gets to shut up about the accusations?

You man that could be blackmail?

Not exactly a definition of trust, if you ask me.

I don't think this is the reason for which she got nominated. Neither the reason for which she accepted. She seems pretty competent for this role, probably more than other nominees.

As for the accusations against Biden and her involvement in all of this there are various opinions. You think he could be blackmailed because of these, I don't. I don't think those accusations were real to begin with. I think she knows that too, otherwise she wouldn't have accepted.

I agree, in amogle's interpretation that's not trust. But that is amogle's scenario and not what I wrote, implied or believe, hope you can make the difference.....

Btw, you two seem so convinced he's a sexual predator trying to cover his ass, why is that? And why a woman like Kamala would accept that? Is there anything in her past to make you doubt her intentions? Something that you two know but the rest of us don't?

Seems the Trump family is impressed by Kamala!
Quote:
“In 2011 and again in 2013, Trump donated a total of $6,000 to Harris’ campaign for California attorney general.
His daughter, Ivanka, also gave Harris $2,000 in 2014.”

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Trump’s tweet today attempting to draw from decades of racist opposition to housing desegregation efforts and low-income housing projects into support for his reelection bid.
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
·
The “suburban housewife” will be voting for me.
They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood.
Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge!
"Safety", "Invade"

In case any voter happened to miss the obvious racism Donny named African-American U.S. Senator Corey Booker.

Quite pleased with Biden's choice.
