Well, it’s about time he made his decision.

Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris, the prominent senator from California whose political career has included many barrier-breaking moments, as his running mate, his campaign announced on Tuesday.
The decision comes more than a year after Harris, who was also a 2020 Democratic candidate, clashed with Biden over racial issues during the first primary debate. If elected, she would be the nation’s first female, first Black and first Asian American vice president.
Picking Harris, who is 55, will also provide the ticket with some generational diversity. Biden, who is 77, would be the oldest president-elect in U.S. history.
The announcement from Biden caps weeks of speculation and marks Biden’s biggest decision to date as the presumptive Democratic nominee — a detail Biden himself noted in his announcement.
“You make a lot of important decisions as president. But the first one is who you select to be your Vice President. I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021,” Biden wrote in an email from his campaign to supporters.
I think Kamala Harris is a good pick.
And considering that the Right Wing media is going to come after her like a pack of hyenas it is good that she is well equipped to kick their asses and send them running back into their safe places with their tails between their legs.
Man am I looking forward to the VP debates now!
It is going to be a bloodbath.
Update: Here is Trump weighing in on Biden’s choice.

That’s bullshit, Trump has no idea how to deal with strong women and especially strong women of color.
His press conferences proved that repeatedly.
