Biden Wins

After all the drama, Joseph R. Biden Jr. elected 46th President of the United States of America.  Kamala Harris elected Vice President of the United States of America.  She has many firsts.  First female Vice President, first African-American, first Indian origin, first from my home town Chennai, and first from my own area in Chennai, Besant Nagar.

Congratulations to both of them.

Potentially, some dramas yet to come.

I wrote on April 11, 2013, the following:

Anytime in the next 25 years, Kamala Harris may contest for the President of USA and may even win.

Kamala Harris may become President in a few months or in a few years or a strong candidate in 2024.

    1. Thanks for your comments Gowri. I know you like me a lot. That is why you give such complements. Just a correction. It is not 4 years. It is 7 years. I wrote about her in 2013.

  4. I am not sure if the vote was for the incumbents or against the rulers. If it's the latter, democracy is not exactly shining.

  5. After a four-year break, America returns to normalcy.

    From Monday, Trump has promised a series of litigations. Let us see what comes out of it.

    2. I could get a sense of that on November 3 itself when Trump made a speech from the White House at around 2.30 in the night or so, when he made that infamous claim 'frankly we did win this election', even before votes had been counted.

      After his speech, he asked Pence who was standing beside to "say a few words". Pence was very measured in his tone and spoke like any other leader would have at that time. He said, "we are on the road to victory".

      Besides this, the difference in tone and tenor of Pence and Trump was too stark to be missed. Pence would have got a mouthful from Trump immediately after that!

      Today, George Bush issued a very nicely worded congratulatory message to Biden.
