Part 99- The candidates

 Hi. I know that when my dad reads this, he’s going to be surprised. Why? Because I accidentally said that this would be my 100th post on Coronavirus log when I didn’t realize that I still had part 99 to write. My bad. The 100th part is coming tomorrow and dad has been stressing that the 100th should be of importance and a review of all posts in the series. Just now he was all about how he thinks its a big deal and he thinks I’m not taking it as seriously as he thinks I should. Well, now that it’s actually the 99th part, I don’t have to do that just yet. Anyway, the topic for today is about the vice presidnet candidates for Joe Biden. ( LINK )

So, as we know, Joe Biden hasn’t picked a running mate for the elections just yet. As I said in Part 98, this post would include his mate to be a female, colored, and well-educated candidate. It actually turns out, that he did pick the person I was going to talk about, to run as vice presidnet in his campaign. And that person is, no other than, Kamala Harris. She was chosen, today, August 11th, 2020 to be Biden’s running mate. This has been a huge topic lately. Who Joe Biden would choose to be his running mate. I was talking to dad, and he said that they would get more votes if his VP nominee would be a female, colored, and well-educated person. Kamala Harris does define all those. We also talked about how Presidnet Trump would be choosing his next campaign manager depending on who Joe Biden picks as his VP nominee. Because it is Kamala Harris, Presidnet trump most likely will be ready with a manager to match them. According to the link above, she has drawn praise from her “strong performance in the first Democratic presidential debate, when she attacked Biden for his stance decades ago on busing…” I can see why he would want her to be his running mate. She had beaten him before- I think- and it sounds like she had done it rather well and amazingly, and so, it makes sense for Biden to choose her. The same link says, ” …who is Black, comes in the wake of nationwide protests over police killings of Black Americans…” Yes, she may also gain the votes of many African Americans as she has been chosen. Apparently, there was a choice between Ms. Harris and Ms. Elizabeth Warren. In the end, Mr. Biden chose Ms. Harris, but, I read that Ms. Warren is known for taking on the financial sector, and if she was chosen, could have shaken Wall Street. She is in consideration for the No. 2 job. 

Kamala Harris had actually announced that she would be running in the 2020 United States presidential election on January 21, 2019. After they both launched their campaigns- Joe Biden and Kamala Harris-  senior members of the Congressional Black Caucus said that a Biden-Harris ticket would be an ideal combination to defeat President Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence. In my opinion, I’m quite excited about baout this choice. Ever since I found out that this was possible, and that Mr. Biden was choosing a female candidate, I was really excited to see who he would pick. I read that he would possibly pick Kamala Harris and sort of forgot to continue on the story, but now, he has announced that he has picked Kamala Harris. I think Mr. Biden has made a good choice. I don’t know a lot about Ms. Warren, as I believe she may have also been an option along with A.O.C.- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but, right now I think Ms. Harris is a good choice. She has experience in these campaigns and has defeated Mr. Biden in a presidential debate. I’d say, that she would be a strong opponent – basing my thoughts on the debate- and I can’t wait to see who Mr. Trump picks as his new campaign manager.

Well, I’m done for today. I look forward to writing the 100th part of our series tomorrow. I will not be writing after that, as I will be taking a break, and will get back to my next, 101st blog after school starts, which is next week. See you in the next blog!
