Yesterday I watched Kamala Harris's speech launching her campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. I am not going to offer an evaluation of her candidacy. In 1948, when I was fourteen, I gave my heart to Henry Wallace. Since then, it has been up and down. But her opening line was, I thought, one of the best I have ever heard, and I wanted to take note of it. Harris's campaign slogan, by the way, is For The People. After graduating from Howard, she did a JD at Hastings, and began her elective career as DA of San Francisco. In her speech yesterday, she said that the first five words she uttered, after entering a courtroom for the first time, were "Kamala Harris for the people."
I thought that was inspired.
We shall see.
Oh yes, if that idiot billionaire who used to run Starbucks does run as an Independent, I will make the ultimate sacrifice and stop drinking Starbucks coffee.
