Re: Biden Has Decided on his VP

It's a fair point. Kamala, a highly successful and privileged woman, didn't have equality of opportunity in terms of a VP pick. She received a boost due to an imposed equality of outcome. It was virtue signalling at its finest. The Democrats have just sent the message that, no matter how successful ...
