Don’t let the door hit you in the ass.
According to John Kerry associates, Kerry’s plans to run for president changed dramatically in the fallout of his “botched joke” about the education levels of U.S. troops. But I think it’s more likely that Kerry is not running because the Democratic field is becoming filled with much more capable candidates and he’d be trounced in the primaries. To be destroyed in the Democratic primary when he was his party’s nominee just a little over two years ago would be simply too much of an embarrassment.
In the words of Don Imus to John Kerry, “Stop talking. Go home, get on the bike, go windsurfing, anything. Stop it. You’re going to ruin this.”
