Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) — his newly announced running mate — is a historic choice as a Black and Asian American woman, but she’s also a small-c conservative pick.

Harris might not add many voters to the campaign, but she’ll help Biden run out the clock — and that’s exactly what he needs to do.

Right now, Biden is running the campaign equivalent of a “prevent defense” strategy in football.

He’s not dominating the news cycle, and he doesn’t need to — every day that President Trump wastes on a bizarre tweet or a bad news conference is one that Biden wins.

By picking Harris, Biden has acknowledged the importance of those movements, and of his own reliance on Black voters.
