Obama Says Biden Nailed It With Kamala Harris Pick

Published by

Former President Barack Obama praised Joe Biden for picking Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running mate. Obama said Biden nailed the choice.

In a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, Obama said:

Choosing a vice president is the first important decision a president makes. When you’re in the Oval Office, weighing the toughest issues, and the choice you make will affect the lives and livelihoods of the entire country – you need someone with you who’s got the judgment and the character to make the right call. Someone whose focus goes beyond self-interest to consider the lives and prospects of others.

Joe Biden nailed this decision. By choosing Senator Kamala Harris as America’s next vice president, he’s underscored his own judgment and character. Reality shows us that these attributes are not optional in a president. They’re requirements of the job. And now Joe has an ideal partner to help him tackle the very real challenges America faces right now and in the years ahead.

I’ve known Senator Harris for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake. Her own life story is one that I and so many others can see ourselves in: a story that says that no matter where you come from, what you look like, how you worship, or who you love, there’s a place for you here. It’s a fundamentally American perspective, one that’s led us out of the hardest times before. And it’s a perspective we can all rally behind right now.

Michelle and I couldn’t be more thrilled for Kamala, Doug, Cole, and Ella. This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.

The praise and euphoria that has come from Democratic circles after Biden picked Harris stands in sharp contrast to lack of enthusiasm when Hillary Clinton picked Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA). Not only are Democrats fired up for this election, but they are getting the candidates that they feel strongly about and want to support at the top of the ticket.

Democrats should feel very good about the Biden/Harris ticket.
