Kerry Almost Says The Obvious About 2008
Kerry said the obvious this afternoon for a guy still sitting on 2004 money and with a large mailing list: he is seriously thinking about running again in 2008.
"I will make that decision toward the end of the year, but I'm thinking about it hard," Kerry said in response to a question at the Latin Economic Forum at the United Nations.
"If you can get help me find 60,000 votes in Ohio ...," he joked, referring to the close race in that state on which his 2004 loss to President Bush hinged.
With all due respect Senator, the time to “find” those 60,000 votes was in the days immediately after the 2004 election.
The sad thing for Kerry is that he will be running for a second opportunity at a time when his chief opponent already has $20 million more than she will need to be reelected in New York this fall; when both Rudy Giuliani and John McCain will harm themselves by kissing wingnut asses and McCain will implode because of his ongoing support for the Iraq debacle; and when there will be new, fresh faces on both the left (Feingold) and the right (Warner) who will dim his appeal.
And that’s before Al Gore is factored into this mix.
