Skip to comments.What will it be, Senator Kerry?

THIS TIME, it will be harder for John Kerry to have it two ways. He can't be for and against a presidential campaign. The pressure is on to choose: Will he run for president or Senate in 2008?
Kerry can't be a presidential nominee and candidate for US Senate on the November 2008 ballot -- a longshot, but still a technical possibility. The state Legislature and governor could change the law, as Connecticut once did for Senator Joe Lieberman. But that seems unlikely, and Kerry seems disinclined to find out.
Kerry adviser Ed Reilly said, "With the end of the year coming up, the senator has indicated that he will begin to turn his attention" to a decision about '08. "The first step will be consultation with Senator Kennedy and other colleagues," Reilly said.

The catsup's stuck in the bottle. Get a knife.
Is it true that he served in Vietnam?
He knows the people of Massachusetts will return him to the Senate, The Presidency is a crapshoot at best and he hasnt much of a chance. he will pick the Senate.
It would be fun watching him lose both if he runs for President, I think he isnt the brightest bulb on the tree, but he isnt stupid enough for that.
This guy actually ran for Caucus Chairman for his fellow Senate Democrats and lost to Patty Murray, who was once named by a liberal publication as one of the Ten Dumbest Members of Congress. That speaks volumes about his standing among fellow Democrats.
I think he'll retire. His "botched joke" is for soldiers what "mecacca" is for Indian-Americans.
Run John, Run!
I'm surprised the woman that owns his balls hasn't come out with a commemorative condiment in the bitch's 'honor'.
"is it true that he served in vietnam?"
don't know. did he ever mention it?
You don't think Deval and his friends at the State House would change the law for fellow lib Kerry? Then again, given the cold shoulder Kerry got from Pelosi and Schumer, maybe his national ambitions will be decided more by the DNC and Hillary than his local partners-in crime.
Yeah, but does Kerry realize that?
"-- a longshot, but still a technical possibility"
He could retire!!!
PS - Swiftboating (telling the truth about a candidate who falsely inflates his record) still works.
mr kerry may very well be lower on the democrat sc%mbag heirarchy than i thought. since his recent bout with hoof-in-mouth disease, he may be too radio-active to be way up there with the prima ballerinas.
so, one will adjust the score card and make him maybe number 17.
Jon Carry for President!
Kerry isnt well liked in all honesty, I think the State House and Deval would plot to take the seat for themselves. Afterall, every other Democratic politician in the State has been waiting for a Senate seat to open up for the last 22 years.
Does Terezza have enough money for John to retire? He does have to put gas into the big honking SUVs that the family, not he, owns.
