The only question Beltway buffs are asking about Vice President Kamala Harris’ political future is: Does she have one? If First Lady Jill Biden had her way during the campaign, the answer might have been “yes.” According to “This Will Not Pass,” a new page turner on the 2020 presidential matchup, Jill Biden was skeptical of the senator from the Golden State. “There are millions of people in the United States,” she reportedly implored a close advisor. “Why do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?” History had to be made. With over half of the American public unimpressed with the veep’s job performance, Harris may be relegated to it.

On Monday, the deputy chief of staff to President Joe Biden’s second in command added his name to a long list of senior officials who, while deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the American people on matters of pressing concern, are pressing on. Three weeks ago, Harris’ national security advisor announced her departure which followed the resignations of the vice president’s chief spokesperson, director of press operations, director of communications, and a slew of staffers before that.

In December, a former senatorial aide who quit the Harris bandwagon in 2013 told the Washington Post, “Who are the next talented people [Harris is] going to bring in and burn through and then have (them) pretend they’re retiring for positive reasons?” Place your bets.
