THRILLING POLITICAL NEWS, NOT – OVERNIGHT:  Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris, together again!  Tickets here!  From the Washington Examiner: 

Vice President Kamala Harris is turning to Hillary Clinton for advice on plotting "a path forward," according to a new report.

The New York Times reports Harris sought out the counsel of Clinton, the first female Democratic presidential nominee and a fellow former U.S. senator, and other women when she came to Washington.

Harris and Clinton speak every few months on the phone, and the two met in the vice president's West Wing office in November, the report said.

Harris, who, like President Joe Biden, has job approval numbers around the 40% mark, has privately complained to allies she is being treated differently by the media than her 48 predecessors while describing them as all white and male, according to the report. Clinton echoed that sentiment.

“There is a double standard; it’s sadly alive and well,” Clinton told the newspaper. “A lot of what is being used to judge her, just like it was to judge me, or the women who ran in 2020, or everybody else, is really colored by that.”

COMMENT:  This is a very strange story, for everyone knows that Hillary Clinton is making her move to run for president again in 2024.  In her way is one Kamala Harris.  We can almost see the two heading toward each other with spears.  It's impossible for me to believe that Kammy doesn't see the threat from elder stateswoman Hillary.  The only thing both candidates have in common is their regular playing of the gender card, and, in Kammy's case, the race card as well.

We are about to enter a bitter political year.  No doubt the oddfellow relationship between Hilly and Kammy will be sorted out.  They will both learn that there are no friends in politics and that knives are dangerous items.
