WASHINGTON -- Just a week into office, it is clear U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will be by President Joe Biden's side at almost every important decision-making meeting during his presidency.

Every evening, the White House sends out to the media the daily guidance for the day ahead. Without exception, it begins with this entry: "In the morning, the President and the Vice President will receive the President's Daily Brief in the Oval Office. This meeting is closed to the press."
