Kamala Harris won. It is the victory over prejudices. Strong, warrior, enterprising, a real woman.
Being first isn’t always easy. It is not in a part of the world where if you have distant origins and are a woman, you are almost certainly forced to breathe the earth raised by those who precede you. It is the dawn of a new era, in America, which today is rediscovered more democratic, turning the page after years of Trump: one of the most uncomfortable presidents they have ever been able to elect.
A tycoon who did good and bad times, entertained the media with his stunts, a court jester in the White House, who even poor Melania can hardly bear.
The new chapter of American political history is written on November 7, 2020 when Joe Biden is elected as the 46th President of the United States, flanked by an iron lady like Kamala Harris.

Who is Kamala Harris
Kamala Devi Harris, US politician and California senator in 2017 and new vice president of the United States of America, was born in Oakland on October 20, 1964. Her mother (an oncologist specializing in breast cancer) is Indo-American. ; his father (emeritus professor of economics at Stanford University) is of Jamaican descent. Both are immigrants to the US.
He studied at Howard University (with two specializations in political science and economics) and at Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. After her studies, she worked as a deputy district attorney for Alameda County from 1990 to 1998. Five years later, in 2003, she was elected district attorney of San Francisco and again, in 2010, attorney general of California.
In the district of San Francisco she comes into conflict with the right hand of Terenece Hallinan, who strongly wanted her as his assistant to investigate murders, sexual assaults and robberies. In 2002 he ran against Hallinan and found support from Nancy Pelosi. The election campaign against Kamala was highly sexist. The woman, in fact, was accused of benefiting from former mayor Willie Brown, who raised money for her campaign.
In October 2003, the San Francisco Ethics Commission sanctions Harris for raising more money than allowed for an election campaign. For Hallinan it is the right opportunity to sink the rival by contesting her actions and carrying out an outrageous campaign against Kamala. A ballot came out. Harris comes out victorious with 56% of the vote.
On January 21, 2019, he announced that he would run for the presidential elections, raising the sum of $ 1.5 million over the next 24 hours. June 12 The New York Times writes in his pages that Harris would have been closer and closer in supporting Joe Biden in the presidential race. Confirmation arrives on 11 August 2020.
Harris is the first Asian American to be chosen as a running mate for the presidential candidate of a primary party.
Private life and honors.
Kamala has been married since 2004 to the Californian lawyer Douglas Emhoff. In 2005 the National Black Prosecutors Association bestows Harris with the Thurgood Marshall Award. The following year, in 2006 she was elected vice president of National District Attorneys Association’s Board of Directors and designated to co-direct the connected Corrections and Re-Entry Committe. In 2008 he entered the California Lawyer Magazine’s 34 Attorneys of the Year list and in 2010 California’s largest legal magazine, The Daily Journal, named Harris as one of the top 75 attorneys in that state, and one of the top 100 attorneys in that state. Finally, in 2013, Time indicates her as among the 100 most influential women on Earth.
Thanks and good evening
Congressman John Lewis, before his death wrote, democracy is not a state. It is an act. And what he meant was that American democracy is not guaranteed. It is only as strong as our willingness to fight for it. To keep it and never take it for granted. And protecting our democracy requires struggle. It takes sacrifice, but there is joy and progress, because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. And when our own democracy was running a ballot in this election, with the very soul of America at stake and the world watching, you ushered in a new day for America.
To our campaign staff and volunteers, this amazing team, thank you for bringing more people into the democratic process than ever. And for making this victory possible. To the poll workers and election officials across our country who have worked tirelessly to make sure every vote is counted, our nation owes a debt of gratitude. You have protected the integrity of our democracy. To the American people who make up our beautiful country, thank you for introducing yourself to record numbers to make your voice heard.
