(FeaturedNews.com) – According to an article published by The New York Times on Monday, many Democrats both in Congress and outside it have doubts about Vice President Kamala Harris’ leadership abilities. While most people expressed their opinions anonymously for the article, it is reported that even former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has some doubts about Harris.
According to the New York Times articles, two separate Democrats have mentioned that in private conversations with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Clinton had said that Harris lacked the “political instincts” required for the position.
A Clinton spokesman, Nick Merril, noted that the two women over the years had established a strong bond. He also added that the two had had completely different experiences of what it takes to be a woman in power. Finally, he concluded that Clinton was very supportive of her as the vice president.
The Times article however portrayed a very different image of how Democrats viewed Harris stating that many of her own political allies and advisers had lost hope in her. Harris before becoming Biden’s running mate had been originally planning to launch her own presidential run, however, she had dropped out before the Iowa caucuses.
Since taking office, she has been under heavy criticism for her approach to the situation at the U.S. border.
This is not the first article to note the Democrats’ displeasure with Harris. A Jan. 30 article by the Washington Post similarly expressed many of the frustrations that Democrats felt regarding the vice president.
