Feinstein: It’s ‘Too Early’ to Tell Whether Kamala Harris Would Make a Good President

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 "there’s 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.
Born Jamaican-Indian-American.
Three nationalities.
Not naturally an American.

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.”

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.
