For more than four decades, most vice presidents have received significant presidential assignments. As Vice President, Joe Biden managed implementation of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus program, and Vice President Mike Pence ran President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 task force.

For most, however, efforts to elevate their standing politically have brought mixed success. More lost later presidential races than won them, and the elder George Bush is still the only sitting vice president elected president in the last 184 years.

Even folks "who look like her" take a disliking to Kamala the more they see of her. People of color recognize the arrogant incompetence that this ditz exudes...MUD
