Kerry out of 2008

It’s not even begun, but already a potential candidate has pulled out of the race.

John Kerry (right)Senator John Kerry, who lost to President Bush in 2004, has reportedly said he won’t run again. Instead he’ll seek another six-year term in the Senate.

Kerry will have noticed the momentum in the Clinton and Obama campaigns and realised he doesn’t have a hope of losing his ‘yesterday’s news’ tag. He dashed his hopes during the 2006 midterm elections by making an inappropriate joke about the President.

His withdrawal reduces the main field of Democrat candidates to nine. I’d wouldn’t be surprised to see others follow him over the coming months.

    He had a chance against the most stupid president of modern times, who had started the worst foreign policy disaster since vietnam and he still lost. You go figure why he’s pulling out now. If fact why on earth was he running in the first place.

    He’s not the first potential candidate to have pulled out after a bit of exploring – I think that was Mark Warner.
