“Even in dark times, we not only dream, we do”. These words testify to the proactive spirit of the lady who will work side by side with President Joe Biden for the next four years. Kamala Harris: the first female, black vice-president and the first one of South Asian descent. In turn, President Biden pledges to bring back unity and respect for America. He recalls that “every disagreement doesn’t have to be a cause for total war” and insists on the unity of purpose needed now more than ever. Both Biden and Harris reach out to America and the world: the question now is whether and in what terms their intent will be met with equal commitment from their counterparts.
