After several reports of discord in the office of Vice President Kamala Harris over the past week, some Democrats seem to be having buyer’s remorse over the woman who’s a heartbeat away from becoming the next president. In a Friday piece for Axios, Margaret Talev and Jonathan Swan reported that “[s]everal administration officials used ‘s***show’ when describing Harris’ office,” with one Democratic operative revealing that some in the administration are saying, “Oh, she’s f***ing up, maybe she shouldn’t be the heir apparent.” While this contrasts with a steady drumbeat of official statements out of Harris’ office defending the environment and chief of staff Tina Flournoy — apparently one of the architects of the clouds of gloom encircling the veep’s camp — what’s clear is that those speaking off the record aren’t so sanguine about Harris’ challenges. That’s a problem, since the former senator from California was picked to be a bit more than a running mate or the heir apparent in eight years if all goes right. Joe Biden is already America’s oldest president, and he comes across as a high-mileage 78.
