Kamala Harris talks about obstacles to voting

But they were undeterred.

She will add: "For four years, people have said to me, 'I didn't realise how unsafe he was.' 'I wish I could go back and do it over.' Or worst, 'I should have voted'". Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic primary; rapper Common; and The Chicks, who recently dropped the word "Dixie" from their group's name in the throes of nationwide Black Lives Matter protests. They paved the way for the trailblazing leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. If the US election were held today, Biden and Harris would not only win the White House but would also expand Democrat-held seats in both the US House of Representatives and Senate. We're not often taught their stories, but, as Americans, we all stand on their shoulders. "But I've always understood why he did it". And that's my mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris.

But then he pivoted to criticizing Harris, saying that "tonight reminded me of nothing so much as Kamala Harris's whole campaign for president".

She said she was able to make history because of the trailblazing efforts of women before her who fought for the right to vote. But we know what he doesn't: "that when women succeed, America succeeds", Pelosi asserted.

It was the belief in the nobility of public service her mother instilled in her that led her to choose a political career spent mostly as a prosecutor - district attorney of San Francisco and attorney general of California - and then as USA senator. I've fought against transnational gangs.

The Democratic party officially nominated US Senator Kamala Harris for vice president on Wednesday, making her the first woman of color to feature on a major party's White House ticket. "I hope you'll join us". And we are a nation that is grieving, grieving the loss of life, the loss of jobs, the loss of opportunities, the loss of normalcy and, yes, the loss of certainty.

Harris also spoke about the pandemic and its disproportionate effect on Black and Brown communities. And this is not a coincidence. This virus, it has no eyes, and yet it knows exactly how we see each other and how we treat each other. And let's be clear - there is no vaccine for racism. He says what Obama "was trying to do" in his speech Wednesday on the third day of the convention was "send out that call - that beacon - to everybody to say, 'We can't sit back'". "The constant chaos leaves us adrift". The callousness makes us feel alone. "He made me a better president - and he's got the character and the experience to make us a better country".
