There is a history of tension between Kamala Harris and Joe Biden, and not necessarily a good one. However, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are burying the hatchet. I predicted, it would Biden/Harris 2020. Here is what Biden had to say about Harris...
"I need someone working alongside me who is smart, tough, and ready to lead. Kamala is that person," Biden announced in a statement.
"I need someone who understands the pain that so many people in our nation are suffering. Whether they've lost their job, their business, a loved one to this virus. This president says he 'doesn't want to be distracted by it.' He doesn't understand that taking care of the people of this nation — all the people — isn't a distraction —it's the job. Kamala understands that."
"I need someone who understands that we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And that if we’re going to get through these crises — we need to come together and unite for a better America. Kamala gets that."
"I first met Kamala through my son Beau. They were both Attorneys General at the same time. He had enormous respect for her and her work. I thought a lot about that as I made this decision. There is no one’s opinion I valued more than Beau’s and I’m proud to have Kamala standing with me on this campaign."
"Her record of accomplishment — fighting tooth and nail for what’s right — is why I’m choosing her. There is no door Kamala won't knock on, no stone she’ll leave unturned, if it means making life better — for the people."
Harris had this to say about Biden:
"Joe Biden can unify the American people because he's spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he'll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I'm honored to join him as our party's nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief."
I think this is the right choice. As I said in predicting Harris as the Biden pick for VP it is the best choice. Once again Harris works because...
"Biden needs a dynamic and outgoing running mate. Someone who speaks well, is ambitious, campaigns well and knows the landscape of a political campaign. Biden cannot go with a quiet running mate who rubber stamps everything he does. He needs someone who will challenge him while supporting him in his run. He needs someone who wants to be President and has the characteristics and the ambition to be President. Even with this said, his VP is going to have to know that to win that VP candidate must be fiercely loyal."
The Biden Harris quotes are as reported by Axios.

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
