Kamala Harris emerged as the number one threat to Biden. Her forceful attacks on Biden and his lack of preparation for it changed the dynamic of the Democratic primary.
Kamala looked like the adult in the room while the other candidates were shouting at each other. Her fundraising will increase after this debate and will cement her as a tier one candidate.
Eric Swalwell‘s pass the torch attack on Biden. It made Swalwell look even more ridiculous than usual. It reminded me of Dan Quale’s JFK comparison during the 88 VP debate that backfired on Quale after Bentsen told him he was no JFK.
Harris will be the nominee if the rest of her debate performances are strong. That will propel her into the primaries in a strong position and with California being early will give her the momentum to clinch the nomination!
