WASHINGTON --Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he is bowing out of the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials.

Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat, plans to say he will remain in the Senate to recommit himself to efforts to extricate the United States from the war in Iraq. His decision to stay out of the presidential race reflects a realization that he would have had an uphill climb in capturing the Democratic nomination, given the other party heavyweights who are already in the race, according to the officials, who spoke to the Globe on condition of anonymity.

Kerry, the party's 2004 presidential nominee, has been acting like a 2008 candidate virtually since he lost to President Bush -- traveling the country, spreading money to other Democratic candidates, and keeping in place a campaign infrastructure that was ready for another presidential bid.

Kerry would have had no chance...I think he wants to focus on keeping his Senate seat since his ketchup heiress wife might dump him if he becomes a nobody.

John Kerry? Didn't he serve in Viet Nam?

The Democrat nomination is already Hillarys. She controls the Democrat party.

His "Troops are Stupid" comments was a bigger blunder than "I voted for it, before I voted against it" comment.

This guy is a total loss here.
