Finally a question on abortion at the #DemocraticDebate!@KamalaHarris: "This is still a fundamental issue of justice for women in America…no other person has any other right to tell her what to do with her body. It is her body, her right, her decision." #AskAboutAbortion pic.twitter.com/XtHQXk2XVG

The other candidates worth paying attention backed her up, ably, but she gets points for leading the topic.

And before anyone accuses me of hypocrisy, remember: I’m a fortunate voter. If (please Murphy, when) one of these women takes the Oval Office back, I’ll be more than content. If the winning Democrat turns out to be Kamala Harris, I’ll still have Elizabeth Warren as my senior Senator. And if the first woman allowed to take her hard-won victory to Washington turns out to be Warren — well, I’m damned sure she’ll work with Harris to find her an important role where she can put her talents to their best use. (Hopefully prosecuting the Repub CREEPsters down to the last actual coffee boy, but that’s just me.)
