Kamala Harris has been advancing with ease in the political arena, stepping quickly onto the national stage from her former role as California's attorney general. Now working in D.C. as a senator with a spot on the intelligence committee, she's been caught up in the midst of the action of the Trump-Russia investigation. Her questioning has allowed her to make inroads with Americans across the country as they watch her lay into officials from the Trump administration and then explain the significance on the TODAY show the next morning.
Before you begin saying that she's not experienced enough to run, take into consideration where Obama was at in his political career before he became president. He, for one, had never served as a state attorney general, a statewide office — she arguably has more political experience than he did. In that role she also went after big banks, winning some $25 billion for California homeowners that were treated unfairly in foreclosures, for example.
Now, by joining the intelligence committee, she should be able to grow her foreign policy experience and make a valid argument about her preparation for the post, especially if she's running against President Trump. So don't dismiss the possibility. Harris says she's not interested ("I am not giving that any consideration I’ve got to stay focused"), but these seven signs would beg to differ.
