I wasn't looking at the TV during Andrew Marr's introduction this morning, just listening, but when he described one of his guests as "redoubtable" - "Georgia's redoubtable Stacey Abrams" - I guessed she'd be a female politician of color.

Someone else tweeted, "We’re in the middle of a pandemic. The economy is trashed. But here’s a black female senator from Georgia to polish our virtue signalling. Aren’t we great?"

Andrew asked Ms Abrams such tough questions as this:
  • You've been called the woman who brought down Donald Trump, and because of what happened in Georgia, you have been a hero to many Democrats ever since. Let me ask you, has Joe Biden actually spoken to you since then?
  • So, how did it feel for you personally when you saw Kamala Harris take the oath of office as vice-president?
  • Finally, how long before we see a female American president, and do you see yourself in the White House one day?
