"Answer yes or no"

In 2016, Kamala Harris leaves the coasts of justice to join politics. She was elected to the Senate with the support of the most important Californian figures. She is quickly noticed by her fighting spirit during the auditions of the personalities chosen by Donald Trump, for his cabinet and for the Supreme Court. Transparent, it multiplies "Answer yes or no" with a submachine gun that fills the left Democrat while feeding the critics of the Republicans. They believe that it will instrumentalize these hearings in order to actually prepare its candidacy for the presidential election.

Kamala Harris is fighting a trump that is also a handicap. She is elected by a powerful state in number of deputies for the investiture convention and who has reached the date of her primaries. Traditionally organized, while the race is already being played, they will be held this time in early March 2020. But this Californian label can also turn out to be a trap, while the voter card obliges the Democrats to recapture the lost ground. the Midwest and the old industrial states of the "Rust Belt".

After Senators Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts) and Kirsten Gillibrand (State of New York) and Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris is the fourth congress that joins the ranks. An unprecedented figure that can still increase and reflect the place that women occupy in the democratic camp. In 2016, the nomination prize for the Republican Party, marked by a record number of applicants, only one candidate – former businesswoman Carly Fiorina – had been counted for sixteen men.
