Kamala Harris

Kamala has attitude...

... and conviction. She's not my senator, but she's staked a spot for herself as a powerful woman able to articulate the needs of her constituents--reaching across state boundaries and making sense to a lot of us outside of California. I also have a soft spot for her because she's biracial and, I feel, is able to access a particular instinct that helps guide her amongst different cultures and perspectives. 

Check out 5 things Sen. Kamala Harris has done besides be interrupted, including winning a "mortgage settlement case that helped more than 84,000 California families" and prosecuting human trafficking.
