I agree. Her symbolic and political strength will grow. I’ve accepted her acknowledgment of responsibility for bad decisions pushed by the old establishment while in her previous positions. She, after all, had to learn to survive in that establishment. It is so refreshing to hear something other than denials and lies from any politician. Maybe there is hope for responsibility grounded in secular ethics with full gender and ethnic neutrality.

While the same is harder to say for Joe Biden, he has owned some of his mistakes and has brought along the establishment offering continuity to those so fearful of change. With Kamala Harris behind him, we can all watch this evolve with hope instead of dread.

Harris has the fascists and reactionaries frightened. That should provide some serious encouragement for the current generation, living in the 21st century while providing needed, low-grade entertainment.
