The Lincoln Project summed up the sentiment nicely in its new video in support of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate: “Kamala. It’s time. Let’s go.”
Lots of heavyweights agree:
I’ve known Senator @KamalaHarris for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake. This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing. pic.twitter.com/duJhFhWp6g

I'm thrilled to welcome @KamalaHarris to a historic Democratic ticket. She's already proven herself to be an incredible public servant and leader. And I know she’ll be a strong partner to @JoeBiden. Please join me in having her back and getting her elected. pic.twitter.com/cmtOO8Gqqv

Congratulations to my friend, @SenKamalaHarris on being selected the running mate to 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden. He couldn’t have chosen a better teammate. I used to be a Youth Coordinator for Shirley Chisholm, this is great day for me. I know Shirley is smiling down. pic.twitter.com/N6jHrWZVzX

Harris is INSPIRING to a lot of people. Maybe not you, white progressive who has determined that there is only one true way to solve our problems, but to A LOT of people.
So, you know, something to think about, people who maybe aren't hooked into HBCU Twitter.

A reminder that Joe Biden has already promised that if elected and given the opportunity, he would nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court.
He's sending a very clear message to the most loyal supporters and voters of Democrats, black women.

The Never Trump Republicans seem stoked, too:
What you notice following @KamalaHarris on trail is that like @JoeBiden she will get to eye level with kids, embrace grieving mothers, buck up young people, reassure high schoolers afraid of shootings. She is the empathetic bookend to Biden.
