When POLITICO’s Eugene Daniels thinks about how he’ll cover Kamala Harris as one of the new authors of the Playbook newsletter, he remembers his grandma, who didn’t think her grandson would see a Black woman vice president in his lifetime. Eugene joins Dispatch to talk about how Harris will make history when she’s sworn in tomorrow — and what sort of challenges she’ll face as “a first.” Plus, the Pentagon deploys hundreds of active-duty troops for inauguration security. And the Census Bureau director steps down.
