Did Kamala Harris Really Do What She Had To Do?

The rhetoric of politicians being justified in doing whatever they have to do to further their careers has always been the problem.

Peter Beinart wrote a well meaning but unconvincing op-ed for The Atlantic titled Kamala Harris Did What She Had To Do. In it he explains that had Kamala Harris, a woman of color, not taken the political stances she had during her career, she would not have been able to advance onto a national political career at all.
