Harris says US not ready for black woman president, but maybe even the Dems didn't want more identity politics in a power suit

Harris says US not ready for black woman president, but maybe even the Dems didn't want more identity politics in a power suit --By CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald | 04 Dec 2019 | Kamala Harris withdrew from the race for Democratic presidential nominee after falling in the polls, disappointing liberal media, and running out of money. The botched campaign is a lesson in the limitations of identity politics...Harris stumbled on health care, half-heartedly defended her career as an attorney general of California, missed chances to debunk frontrunners, and finally proved unable to separate herself from the field of progressives on one side, and moderates on the other...The California senator and others have suggested that Kamala Harris paid a price for her identity as a black woman. But the prevalence of identity politics within the party, the two-term presidency of Barack Obama, and the fawning media that greeted Harris's candidacy suggest otherwise.
