A 'female Obama' seeks California attorney general post

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) - She's been called "the female Obama" by some media, and the president even paid her a visit this week to help her political fortunes. Like Barack Obama, she aspires to a lot of firsts.

Kamala Harris is the daughter of a father from Jamaica and a mother from India, and she's seeking to be the first black woman attorney general of California.

    Well if she's a democrat we already know she's smarter than the dumb conservative women the GOP chooses to tote. Palin, O'Donnell, Bachmann? Give me a break.

    I hope she's not the female Obama. We can't stand another one to try and bankrupt our country.

    I wish her well, whether she is elected or not, and I apologize in advance for all the poopspittled comments I know are going to appear in this column immediately.

    She would be the first female attorney general of California and Meg Whitman would be the first female governor.

    Two impressive ladies, but Whitman is head and shoulders above Harris. CNN should profile Whitman.

    This kind of questionable parrallel is disgusting as it hints at questioning Obama's presidential status and could indirectly question her eligibility for this job. It is sickening and totally unnecessary!
