…c progressives are likely to find more they like than dislike when looking through Harris’s record. As Attorney General, Harris oversaw an 83% drop (!) in criminal admissions for Marijuana related admissions, secured a multi-billion dollar settlement from big banks and, set up an LGBTQ+ Hate Crimes Unit. All of these policy changes are almost certain to appeal to Democrats from all wings of the party.
I agree with your assessment. Most Democrats are pragmatic enough to appreciate Biden's excellent choice. We appreciate Biden's selection of a Black woman and he will be rewarded in a poll. I side with Black Lives Matter and I support Kamala's role in helping reshape the justice department. She supported the First Step Act which aims to end mass incarceration. I also admire Biden for selecting her even though she disagreed with him. He proves that he is a good leader who does not shy away from confrontation, but rather embraces diverse ideas in his decsion making process. Amazing ticket.
