Kamala Harris on Deck: VP Asserts Preparedness to Step Up as President


Vice President Kamala Harris isn’t shy about her readiness to take the reins. In a recent interview, she confidently addressed the possibility of “taking over” the highest office in the land. While she remains optimistic about President Biden’s stamina, despite growing concerns surrounding his age, she’s making it clear that she’s ready, if needed.

According to a recent AP/NORC poll, a startling 77% of Americans feel that President Biden might be too seasoned to helm another term. This speculation has amplified the spotlight on Harris, given that she’s just a heartbeat away from the presidency. A position made all the more palpable as we consider that by the end of a possible second term, Biden would be 86. Some conservative figures have even suggested that a vote for Biden might essentially be a vote for Harris – an idea not entirely dismissed by the Vice President herself.

But Harris believes that Biden is still very much capable. Speaking of their daily interactions, she lauds his “ability to understand issues and weave through complex issues,” suggesting he consistently delivers on behalf of the American people.

The idea of Harris stepping up as President isn’t just chatter; every Vice President understands the gravity and potential of their role. Harris is no exception, stating, “Every vice president… must be very clear about the responsibility they may have to take over the job of being president.”

On a different note, Harris didn’t hesitate to express her views on the controversial issue surrounding the attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results and the incidents that unfolded at the U.S. Capitol. The Vice President, known for her previous role as California’s attorney general, has always been an advocate for accountability. This extends to former President Donald Trump, especially in light of recent indictments against him.

Democracy’s fragility, Harris remarked, was exposed in the aftermath of the 2020 election. She emphasized that our democratic institutions will only endure if citizens remain vigilant in their defense.

Harris’s recent attendance at the summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations – stepping in for Biden – underscores the importance of U.S. commitments to the region, especially considering the geopolitical tensions surrounding the South China Sea.

In a region where global interests collide, Harris remains steadfast in representing America’s stance, especially against actions like Beijing’s new government map that seems to overreach its territorial claims.

In conclusion, whether it’s facing global challenges or being prepared to ascend to the presidency if required, Vice President Kamala Harris is sending out a message – she’s up to the task. As the political landscape continues to evolve, conservatives and liberals alike will be keeping a keen eye on her moves.
