Let’s set aside President Trump’s current legal challenges to the election results in multiple battleground states for a moment and focus on something exciting and historic.
On Saturday November 7, the AP and consequently multiple other news agencies called the presidential election for former Vice President Joe Biden.
A curious coincidence that Lynda Carter aptly pointed out: she first starred as Wonder Woman in the pilot for the popular TV series exactly 45 years ago on November 7, 1975.
Carter also wrote of Harris becoming the first female vice president in U.S. history, “Beyond thrilled for my friend @KamalaHarris, who has fought for progress and justice for so long. A true stateswoman, she will show us all the things a VP is supposed to be.”Lynda Carter Celebrates Kamala Harris By Noting 45th Anniversary of ‘Wonder Woman’ TV Premiere | Hollywood Reporter
I’ve been wanting to see more women in the highest political positions for years and this is one step for women closer to the presidency. In fact, if Biden should die during his time in office, which isn’t exactly a far stretch considering he will be the oldest president ever, then Kamala Harris will become the president.
I’d rather see a woman elected president than be awarded the position under 25th Amendment circumstances, but a win for women is a win.
Congratulations to “Momala” Harris, as she’s lovingly referred to by her family.
Kamala Harris will provide a number of firsts in the White House, and it’s time these barriers fall for women. It will be good to see a man stand by his woman vs. the opposite. Women can and very much should be just as eligible for any elected political position.
