Vice President Kamala Harris’s struggles could complicate her ability to lead the Democratic Party in a future election, be it in 2024 or later.
Harris has been hurt by being entrusted with huge issues, such as immigration and voting law changes, that are beyond the ability of a vice president to fix.
Al Gore’s vice presidency provides a roadmap for Harris. She should focus on executive achievement, overseas accomplishments, and building political alliances at home.
