(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — California Attorney General Kamala Harris is a major “first” for her position: She’s the first woman, the first black person and the first South Asian to be attorney general of the Golden State.
She’s a national co-chair for President Obama’s re-election bid, and with her star on the rise, some have hinted she could one day be the first female president herself.
But Tuesday on the ABC News and Yahoo! News convention live stream, Harris told ABC’s Amy Walter and Rick Klein she’s not getting carried away with all that presidential talk just yet.
“I am completely focused on what’s right in front of me, for a number of reasons,” Harris said. “One, I think life is too short. You have to really enjoy what you’re doing today.”
“I’m also a little superstitious,” she continued. “You know, you concentrate on that thing out there, and then you’re gonna trip over the thing in front of you.”
When asked if we should expect to see her in Iowa or New Hampshire soon, Harris played coy.
“Who knows where we’re going to be a year from now,” she said.
