A last dance through the office, a last video message, then it was suddenly over, the presidential campaign of Kamala Harris. The Senator from California and immigrants daughter once had a good chance to be the first woman in the White house, and the first black person to do so. But now she had to cancel her election campaign, before the first code of the Democrats has taken place. You ran out of money. This is a bitter defeat for Harris, the move by some American media for years as the logical successor to Barack Obama high. But this is also a setback for your party.
The Democrats are much on the other, to be the modern face of America – the party of Blacks, of women, of immigrants, of young people and the minorities. In the spring of the Opposition, celebrated for its historically colorful field of presidential candidates. However, with the withdrawal of Harris, the only dark-skinned candidate leaves the race, had at least a halfway realistic Chance at victory in the primaries. At the next TV debate of the Democrats, probably the only white Applicants be standing on the stage – and more billionaires, as a minority representative. Of the four most promising candidates, three white men, two of them – Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – are soon to 80 years old. Very divers, this is no longer.
That Harris had to give up, she has to take credit for themselves. They led not a particularly good campaign. Her and the other dark-skinned candidate not helped also that the Democrats hold their first primaries every Time in the pronounced white States of Iowa and New Hampshire.
Maybe the party still comes to a Premiere. And maybe the Person is on the ballot is, even Kamala Harris.
However, the previous election campaign of the Democrats shows that democratic voters, especially of a concern: the fear that a candidate could go in the main election against Donald Trump under. That he or she is especially true in the Swing States of the Midwest as "not selectable". "Electability" is the term used by the American commentators use for it. It is a vague concept, as a Definition of who, when, and for whom is it selectable, does not exist. Since Trumps victory many to understand, including the idea that only a white candidate against Trump can – and most likely a man. In this sense, Trump has not only the Republicans but also the Democrats who fight him so much.
This is the reason why the former Vice President Biden, the opinion polls still, although he has as a candidate a lot of weaknesses. "Biden has the best Chance to Trump the electorate": The sentence, in a conversation with democratic supporters, often from African-Americans that Biden is by far the most popular candidate is and in which Harris never really arrived.
Who is always that the Democrats as a presidential candidate, but is not nearly around it, to nominate, at least, a black Vice President or a black Vice-President. Thus, the party would still be a Premiere. And maybe the Person is on the ballot is, even Kamala Harris.
