"I'm not saying that about myself, but I am saying that about the capacity of the American public", Harris said, adding, "We need to give the American public more credit".

At every stop, when asked about running for president, Harris has answered with some variation of "I'm not ready yet" to announce her decision and cited family considerations. Although she still hasn't officially tossed her hat into the ring, on Thursday she teased The Late Show host Stephen Colbert over a possible 2020 run.

Harris said she would make a decision soon and she believes the country is ready for a woman of color as president.

Harris was born in Oakland and began her public career as a two-term district attorney there.

"I think a mishandled announcement can hurt more than a well-handled announcement helps", said the Democratic strategist and pollster Joel Benenson, a veteran of former President Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaigns.

She was on the show to promote her autobiography, titled The Truths We Told, which wasreleased on Tuesday. "She knows that this is something that's heading her way and a good candidate is one who doesn't wait for it to hit them".

Mortal Kombat 11 Gameplay Reveal Arrives Next Week - Here's The Cover Art
Should this project find favor with the fanbase, I'm guessing it'll finally gloss over Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins. Fans of Injustice 2 can probably expect some aspects of the Gear System to carry over to the Custom Character System .

"When the conversation shifts, one should be expected to be questioned about those choices", Chatfield said, noting among other issues Harris's advocacy for tougher truancy laws.

While Harris said that she took "full responsibility", she did not apologize and did not acknowledge the alleged victim involved in the incident. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker was central to the passage of the Senate's criminal justice overhaul package and is certain to tout it if he decides to launch a presidential campaign.

But a campaign also could hurt her standing.

Though California is Harris' home state, her team wants to locate its headquarters on the East Coast, near the major cable news outlets and within quicker flying distance to some of the early Midwestern and East Coast primaries and caucuses, such as Iowa, New Hampshire and SC. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren became the first major Democratic candidate for 2020 when she announced her run in December.

The intent is to draw a contrast with Donald Trump by presenting her credentials as a tough, fact-based prosecutor against a factually challenged president who has been under a legal cloud for much of his presidency. And those are the issues I think about.
