John Kerry Bows Out of 2008 Presidential Race
John Kerry has decided not to run for president in 2008.
Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democrats’ losing presidential candidate in 2004, does not intend to run again in 2008, a Democratic official said Wednesday. This official said Kerry intends to seek a new six-year term in the Senate.
Kerry plans to disclose his political plans in remarks on the Senate floor later in the day, according to this official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting a formal announcement.
While I can understand his desire to have a second bite at the apple after having come relatively close in 2004, the odds were against his getting the nomination again.
