By choosing Kamala Harris as his potential vice-president, Joe Biden hasn’t just picked a running mate, but a high-profile political heiress.
Kamala Harris will be 56 on 2020 Inauguration Day, much younger than then-78-years-old Joe Biden.
She is elected and known at a national level, and has both executive and legislative experience. As one of the most liberal senators, she can speak to the left of the Democratic Party. As a former California attorney general and economic centrist, she can appeal to the right of the party and independant electors.
