Of Course He's Running
This article teases us
with the "news" that John Kerry may be running again in 2008.Kerry himself insisted he has not decided whether to run. But more than a dozen longtime loyalists interviewed for this story said they had no doubt that Kerry would attempt what a host of Washington doubters think unimaginable: become the first Democrat in half a century to lose a general election and be renominated four years later.
There's no doubt in my mind that Kerry's going to run in 2008. I doubt he's going to get anywhere. As mentioned above, he would be the first Democrat to be renominated after losing the prior election since Adlai Stevenson. Of course, the key fact not mentioned is that Stevenson was seen all along as a sacrificial lamb in 1952; there was virtually no chance he was going to defeat Eisenhower in that election.
