I am 62 years old. [View all]

I am old enough to remember the massive controversy over busing in the 1960s / 1970s. What struck me then and now, was the amount of opposition to busing in the Northeast from whites. In areas that were solidly Democratic. The actions of many whites was simply awful.

Although I like Biden, I think Harris was right in going after Biden. The fact she was able to personalize the issue made it that much stronger.

I would love to see a Warren / Harris or vice versa ticket.

And no, Harris was NOT angry.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
