Mike Allen makes three good points:
- “She was always at the top of his list… It says something encouraging about these dire times for America that Joe Biden could both make history by naming the first Black and South Asian woman to a major-party U.S. presidential ticket — and fulfill conventional wisdom at the same time.”
- “With some of the best connected reporters in the land obsessing about the choice, there was no definitive leak, even at the end — something Biden’s high command is super-proud of.
Amid the chaos and improvisation of the Trump Show, Biden ran an old-school, by-the-book process. His White House would be a similar Return to Normal.”
- “Biden’s selection process raised the profiles of several other women of color who are now set up to star in a new chapter of American politics.”
