She began her career in the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, before being recruited to the San Francisco District Attorney's Office and later the City Attorney of San Francisco's office. In 2003, she was elected district attorney of San Francisco. She was elected Attorney General of California in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. Harris served as the junior United States senator from California from 2017 to 2021. Harris defeated Loretta Sanchez in the 2016 Senate election to become the second African American woman and the first South Asian American to serve in the United States Senate.[6][7] As a senator, she advocated for healthcare reform, federal de-scheduling of cannabis, a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, the DREAM Act, a ban on assault weapons, and progressive tax reform."
    Not true, but in your small mind you can only think that way, it's your fall back to all things, it has to be about something hidden. Her accomplishments were pushed because of her sexual relationship with Willie Brown! We already have a path to citizenship! Anything done for those already here is pandering to lawbreakers. In essence she is breaking her oath to uphold the constitution by even suggesting those measures. She is putting the welfare of law breakers above the needs of American citizens.

    Like here:

    "Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors. "

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/17/o...l-justice.html

    This is a person that should not be anywhere near the seat of president of the US. (or Supreme Court)
    Thanks. I have heard/read that she was heartily disliked by blacks in her home area because she was a prosecuting/district attorney.

    It's "well known?"

    You're going to have to do better than that. Otherwise, it's just a woman-hating thing. Sorry.

    IMO, people in CA have valid reasons to not like her. In the same manner, black people nationwide have a reason to not like Biden because of his crime bill.

    I've seen the results of that in action, pretty bad.

    Rapists and robbers get less time than a decent man who was peddling a little dope to feed his family.

    No chance in that unless Joe kicks the bucket. The people that run Biden don't want to lose power.

    This is all hugely hypothetical. I personally do not believe that this is a possibility for reasons I gave before.

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    You are correct, but I would say it is beyond "hugely hypothetical", and more like complete fiction.
    Daniel Patrick Moynihan said it best, "You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts."
    Paul Begala, "Politics is show business for ugly people."
    Stephen Colbert, "Reality has a well known liberal bias."
