After being hailed as a historic and consequential figure in America’s first female vice-president, she was expected to play a significant role in the Biden administration.
“Harris has the potential to change the face of the U.S. Politics,” read a November 2020 Politico headline that echoed many others at the time. The administration demanded that she be recognized as her boss shortly after Joe Biden was elected the 46th president of the United States.
