Looking ahead to Kamala Harris

Senator Kamala Harris is a rising star in the Democratic Party. She appears in the news as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee looking into the Trump administration's various charges. Her exchange with Attorney General Jeff Sessions is noteworthy because Republican Chairman Barr cut her off.

The conservative National Review emerged with a backhanded compliment.
"Harris, a rumored presidential candidate before she even won election to the Senate, fills that role nicely, and claiming injustice at the hands of old, white, male Republicans is a good way to get your foot in the national door."
If the Democratic Party believes that Kamala Harris is qualified to become a presidential candidate, then there is much work to do to improve their process for selecting them.

Kamala Harris might be eligible to become the US Attorney General, for instance. However, lacking any experience managing the very large government or private organizations, she simply doesn't have the right experience.

She should run for governor of California, eventually.

Case closed. Please read my book: How to Select an American President by James A. George and James A. Rodger (c) 2017 Archway Publishing.

Lacking the necessary management experience

  1. Required is successful management experience in leading a very large and complex organization. Being governor of California is a good example. Kamala cannot get to the presidency from being a successful Senator.
