Kerry has decided not to run for president in 2008. The decision seems to have resulted in a large part from his so-called "botched joke" about the intelligence of U.S. armed forces personnel.

Kerry Decision

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.

But according to Kerry associates, the senator's plans changed dramatically in the fallout of his election-eve ``botched joke" about the education levels of US troops. The harsh reaction to that incident -- from many Democrats as well as Republicans -- displayed to Kerry the extreme skepticism within his own party about whether he should mount another run.
(my underlining)

After the last election, I for one am glad to see this one go early.

He didn't have a prayer. And the strange thing about this was that up until his 'botched joke' he was running around calling himself the front runner for the dems. I think he actually believed that.

Anyways .. thank GOD he is out. He couldn't have won, but at least we know for sure that cheese-eatting-surrender-monkey won't be near the Oval Office.

The democratic field of candidates better hope that Teresa Heinz Kerry doesn't enter the race. Now who is that John fella you keep talking about?
