In its 3,000 word puff-piece on likely 2020 Democrat presidential frontrunner Kamala Harris, the BBC overlooks something rather important:
The propulsion of senator and lawyer Kamala Harris to front-runner status among the Democrats hoping to take on President Donald Trump in 2020 has underlined the resurgent political power of her home state.
A California senator is one of the front-runners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
A California congresswoman is Speaker of the House of Representatives.
California’s new governor is a young, progressive champion promising to offer an alternative to the “corruption and incompetence” of Donald Trump’s White House.
And that is, you can win California by 2:1 and it still won’t land you the presidency. To do that, you need to get out of the lunatic progressive bubble that is coastal California and appeal to ordinary people. Can Kamala do that? We shall see. My guess is the Democratic primaries are going to uncover an awful lot of unpleasantness and flaws in each candidate. Personally I’m hoping Hillary runs again.
