Some VPs are overlooked. I don’t think that quite describes Kamala. People are aware that she exists but overlook her because she’s a lightweight. Not just any lightweight, but a world-class lightweight who never has anything to say and never actually accomplishes anything. Even by the standards of useless veeps, she’s just remarkably useless.
Biden, who picked her because no one would possibly want her to replace him, has to pretend otherwise.
“Look, I just think that Vice President Harris hasn’t gotten the credit she deserves,” Biden said in a sit-down interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle. “She was an attorney general in the state of California. She has been a United States senator.”
Neither position has very high standards. Just ask Senator Feinstein and Xavier Becerra.
“She is really very, very good,” Biden continued. “And with everything going on, she hasn’t gotten the attention she deserves.”
Her unpopularity, worse than Biden’s reflects the fact that she’s not obscure. Americans know who she is and they don’t like her. In a typical poll, 15% respond with “not sure” which might mean they don’t know who she is or that they have no opinion. Most respondents have an opinion and the majority of such opinions are negative.
Biden made sure she got plenty of attention (of the negative variety) by making her the public face of everything from the border crisis to abortion.
Kamala has gotten the attention she deserves. That’s her problem.
