JOE BIDEN/KAMALA HARRIS/WOMEN: “I didn’t feel pressure to select a Black woman [as a running mate] but I– what I do think and I’ve said it before, and you’ve heard me say it. I’ve probably said it on your show with you, is that the government should look like the people, look like the country. Fifty one percent of the people in this country are women. As that old expression goes, women hold up half the sky, and in order to be able to succeed, you’ve got to be dealt in across the board.”
