When Joe Biden announced that his running mate would be Kamala Harris yesterday, I have to say: I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm for the choice I saw mostly on my Instagram feed. I saw this picture a lot:

Was there ever more of an exciting day? For our entire country of course, but especially for my Black and Indian sisters, many of us who have gone our entire lives thinking that someone who looks like us may never hold high office. We work so hard and contribute to the fabric of America, and now to see someone as talented as @kamalaharris rise to the top like this? It’s thrilling!! I am filled with hope and excitement. Thank you @joebiden. Let’s do this! @meena @mayaharris_ #rohinikosoglu #sisterhood #letsdothis #bidenharris2020 Photo credit: Getty Images
Courtney also expressed a common sentiment.
Obviously, Maya Rudolph was excited, because it means she’ll get to spend more time on the set of SNL in the coming years. But you know whose level of excitement for the Biden/Harris ticket I wasn’t expecting in 2020?
The star of, uh, The Secret: Dare to Dream must have visualized the Biden/Harris ticket. She must have put it on her vision board and stared at it for months, because wow is Joey Potter excited about the Democratic ticket this year.
Whatever enthusiasm gap the nation might have been worried about with the Biden/Harris ticket has been filled completely by Katie Holmes, who just delivered the couch-jumping Insta moment of the campaign. Let’s do it, America! Let’s all show our excitement as though we’re all Meg Ryan at a dinner table in a restaurant in When Harry Met Sally!
