Kamala Harris is the perfect VP pick for Joe Biden, believes Ed Kilgore of New York Magazine. She has lots of federal and political experience and has the needed charisma for this role. Positioned slightly to the left of Biden, being of Indian and Jamaican origins and aiming to be the first female VP in US history, she ticks several boxes that will appeal to large parts of her party's electorate. She also doesn't have a history of controversy or skeletons in her closet, having been vetted properly as a presidential candidate. Young, engaging and politically astute, Harris is the perfect choice to flank Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Kamala Harris's history as a prosecutor makes her the wrong candidate for VP, holds Anisha Gupta of New York Daily News. She went after black and brown people with incredible zeal, ruining countless lives. Her decision-making helped police officers that abused their power escape being held accountable while undermining their victims. In fact, her office hid crucial information that would have kept many defendants out of jail. Harris worked hard to hide the disciplinary records of cops that had engaged in misconduct. Often, her stances were more right-wing than those of Republicans. In the America of today, a better VP is needed.
