Her primary campaign was a mess so that was never an option. She dropped out way before the first state primary.

I think I might have said it once or twice the Dems could have chosen an empty packet of Walkers Cheese & Onion crisps with no campaign strategy to beat DJT. Yes it is the Electoral College that decides so why make the citizens vote

The EC votes in direct correlation to the citizen's vote so the two are not unrelated.

Best tell that to the ten deviant voters in the 2016 election (not that it would have affected the result).

Fair enough - yes, the EC in theory can vote for other than their 'pledged' candidate - as described here, for the 2016 election.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faithl...ntial_election
Looks like it was 7, in the end, that voted 'deviantly'. Only a sub-set of all EC voters can do this, depending on the state they are in. I'll leave it for others more informed about US law to get into details, but I suspect if a substantial number of EC voters actually deviated from their 'pledge', 'steps would be taken'. I don't think it's fair to characterize the system as being somewhat arbitrary.

add to that...
She's got a funny name
.....which (true to form) the infantile Oval Office squatter purposely kept mispronouncing during his press conference.
"KA ma la" became "Kuh MA - luh"

oh, "Dough nald" - you're such a wag

Tonight they showed part 2 of an old 2-part documentary on President Ronald Reagan - part of the 'American Experience' series on PBS. Excellent quality; a couple of weeks ago they showed the similar documentary on Bill Clinton. I never supported Reagan, and was glad to see him go, but he was a man of principal and did achieve certain key things (nuclear arms treaties with USSR, principally). It occurred to me, what will the documentary of Trump's presidency be like? I hope I live long enough to see it.

Sadly, I wonder how much attention she will get. If I were part of 'Team Trump', I'd advise him to stay well away from her and just focus on Biden.

How much attention was paid to ... what's his name ... I'll have to look it up because he was so inconsequential his name never stuck ... oh, right - Tim Kaine (VP pick of Hillary Clinton)? So there is precedent for totally ignoring the pick. On the other hand, no one can forget Sarah Palin, possibly the worst pick ever, who got a lot of attention, or Dan Quayle, who was also 'memorable'. So let's hope Kamala Harris does get a lot of attention, and let's hope it's positive!
