“Will the Real Kamala Harris Please Stand Up?” is the title of this RedState article. The article then opens by saying “This evening, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) will meet Vice President Mike Pence on the debate stage for the one and only vice presidential debate of the 2020 campaign. So, which Kamala Harris should we expect to show up tonight, the far-Left liberal or the so-called moderate?”

The simple answer is that we should expect to see both versions tonight. Like Joe Biden, Sen. Harris is whoever she needs to be in front of whichever audience she’s talking to. The reason why she hasn’t taken many questions is because taking a position on issues means that she’d piss off either AOC or Establishment Democrats. It’s like playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded gun. There’s no winning in situations like that.

I suspect that she’ll be on the defensive most of tonight. Here’s why I expect that:

To date, Harris has been on the leading edge of the socialist makeover of the Democratic Party. She has co-sponsored several socialistic proposals, including the Green New Deal and Sanders’ Medicare for All bill.

According to Harris, “Climate change is an existential threat—it’s critical we act now to achieve a cleaner, safer, and healthier future. But it is not enough to simply cut emissions and end our reliance on fossil fuels. … We need a Green New Deal based in climate and environmental justice, which means building a clean economy that protects communities that have been neglected by policymakers for far too long. I’m proud to work with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez on this comprehensive proposal, and I’m hopeful that it brings a Green New Deal closer to reality.”

On Medicare for All, Harris is all-in, too. “In America, health care should be a right, not a privilege only for those who can afford it. It’s why we need Medicare for All …We need comprehensive health insurance that covers every American,” said Harris.

Watching this video is fun — if you’re a Republican:

With any luck, we’ll see all the different Harris faces tonight.
