Thoughts On Kamala Harris Dropping Out of the 2020 Presidential Election

The beauty of a Presidential election season is that there are more than enough candidates for the voters to choose from. The downside of this is at the end of the day, there will be only one person representing the Democrats and one person representing the Republicans.

Earlier today, Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) ended her Presidential campaign.

To be honest, I am disappointed. Senator Harris had all of the marking of a successful Presidential candidate. As a woman of color and a child of immigrants, she represented two important groups who are not always given the political spotlight. She was also the only person of color who had a decent shot of earning the nomination.

The issue, as I see it now, is will the next Democratic Presidential Debate have anyone of color on stage? Julian Castro, Andrew Yang, Corey Booker, and Tulsi Gabbard are citizens of color. The problem is that neither of them has ranked high enough to have the same attention as some of the other candidates.

Only time will tell us who is the Democratic nominee. But that does not take away the disappointment of Senator Harris not having a shot at the nomination.

At least she has the power to help impeach you know who. This is not exactly a consolation prize, but it is still a step in the right direction.
