Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) said in a recent piece profiling her Democratic colleague Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) that it is "too early" to tell whether the potential 2020 candidate would make a good president.
Feinstein's remarks came in a Politico piece published Thursday and titled, "Kamala Harris keeps 'em guessing." The piece reflects on Harris' first year in the Senate and how she has become a rising star in the Democratic party, describing the senator as a "serious-minded lawmaker" and as someone who "bones up on policy and can engage on substance."
While the junior senator from California has been floated as a potential 2020 contender since early 2017, Feinstein said it is "too early" for her to say whether her colleague would be a good president. She called Harris her "good friend" and said she would like to see her stick around the Senate because "theres a certain degree of staying power" required to succeed there.
The profile piece also highlighted Harris' voting record, including a couple of votes that bucked the party leadership. Harris briefly angered Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) last month when she undercut other Democrats looking to strike a deal on immigration.
"She did some damage with her colleagues," said one Democratic senator anonymously.
Despite Feinstein's hesitance to say whether her fellow California lawmaker would be a good president, Harris wants to be part of Feinstein's 2018 reelection campaign and has vowed to support her over a progressive primary challenger.
The New York Times published a similar profile piece on Harris last summer that speculated about the senator's future ambitions. Feinstein was asked at the time about Harris' future as a national figure, prompting her to say Harris "just got here." She added that the junior senator was "on the way to becoming" a good friend.
Using Barack Hussein Obama as a measuring stick, I would say “No”.
Just what America does not need — another inexperienced Democrat hack chosen entirely for their looks.
Not eligible to be President.
Not naturally an American.
If feinstein says she would, she wouldn’t.
But it’s not too early to tell that she’ll make a bad president.
Not too early for me. The English language doesn't have a word for how wretched she would make the country. We'd all probably line up to move the Venezuela. BUT... I hope she gets the Democrat nomination.
Who (in their right mind) would think America needs a dose of "Angry [racist, radical, communist] Black Woman"?
Liberals use the suntan yardstick. They say “Yes.”
Huh? She was born in Oakland, CA.
No it isn’t.
Be careful what you ask for.
This country, despite Trump, is probably foolish enough to elect her.
Similar to b o, kamala does, in fact, look presidential. If you cross your eyes while squinting tightly.
She will be the "Chosen One." Actually, she already is. You watch as the DNC/Soros Machine, along with democrat/communist media/entertainment propaganda complex clears the way for her. Everything you will see for the next two years will be done to make her the candidate.
serious-minded lawmaker........................ Who knows dip s#!t about economics or national security. She’s has a big mouth but will lack leadership. Then again to Dems Mickey Mouse is a great leader.
Isn't that a form of blasphemy Dianne?
