Traditionally various voting groups claim disenfranchisement. But at this moment, young people are facing multiple barrier to reaching their American dream. In my opinion, young people today are more diverse and more aware and struggle more to 'make it'. Obama brought young voters and black voters out to the polls - I think this happened because he didn't look like old white establishment. Biden on the other hand looks very much like old white establishment - he needs a contrast.
The promise to have a woman vp was, first off, short-sighted as far as I'm concerned. But it seemed like it was done to try and smooth over the claims of sexism that began plaguing him. I don't think he necessarily needs a woman, but I do think he should have someone who screams social justice.
Yeah. That's always what they say when some spoiled rich kid ruins people's lives.
I suspect you have no idea if Harris was a spoiled rich kid or not (having money doens't equate to spoiled). Law-makers of all backgrounds have passed legislation the resulted in negative unforeseen consequences. It happens, if they can learn from it and move forward - isn't that a preferable outcome.
Also, one could argue who's life was actually ruined or impacted - a parent that had to spend some time in jail, or a kid that got an education once their parent(s) were out of the way?
