Biden's Notes Reveal He Needed To Be Reminded To 'Not Hold A Grudge' Against Kamala Harris

A close up shot of former Vice President Joe Biden's notes show that he has to remind himself not to hold a grudge against Democratic Senator Kamala Harris who once accused him of being racist.
While speaking to a small group in Delaware, a close up photo of Biden's notes showed multiple talking points including a section about Kamala Harris.
Check out the photos below:
The notes about Harris fall in line with speculation that Biden may pick her to be his Vice President pick. On Tuesday, Politico accidentally released an article saying that Biden had already picked Harris to be his VP. The article was quickly scrubbed.
"Politico published an article claiming Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his running mate, and announced it August 1. It’s since been changed, and scrubbed from the piece," tweeted David Hookstead.
In June of 2019 during the first Democratic primary debate, Harris went off on Biden, accusing him of racism for his opposition to federal mandated busing back in the 1970s.
This attack during the debate and her refusal to apologize for it, may mean that Harris' chances for becoming Biden's Vice President pick are slimming even though Biden has promised to select a black woman as his VP pick.
Former Sen. Chris Dodd who is now helping Biden find his Vice President pick, asked Harris about the attack. She had no remorse.
“She laughed and said, ‘that’s politics.’ She had no remorse,” Dodd said to a Biden supporter who shared the information with Politico. “Dodd felt it was a gimmick, that it was cheap.”
The Biden supporter also said that Dodd is very worried about Harris which is why he “helped elevate California Rep.Karen Bass during the vetting process, urging Biden to pick her because ‘she’s a loyal No. 2. And that’s what Biden really wants,’” according to Politico.

And people in three other competing camps privately said that while their candidates have a shot for VP, Harris is more likely to get the nod.
Yet with Biden set to make his decision as soon as the beginning of August, there are still hang-ups over Harris — largely over the matter of trust.
Former high-ranking Democratic Party officials and elected officials have expressed concerns about her to the vetting committee in recent weeks, according to four sources who’ve spoken to the Biden vetting team.
