Kerry's Wife Says "No New Campaign"

What she said.

Sen. John Kerry "may want to consider running for president again in 2008. But his wife, local ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry... has made it clear she won't sit still for another campaign," the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Kerry let us down by not fighting for himself. He doesn't deserve a do-over.

Although I supported Kerry from June 2003 to November 2004, I agree.

As I heard someone put it recently, you get one shot at the brass ring.

Kerry ran a good campaign considering his limitations, which included his exciting (NOT) personality; his slipperiness on issues, such as the Iraq war; the current "Democratic" "leadership," which, I think, hamstrung him; election fraud in Ohio; and the fact that he was running against not just an incumbent but a "war president." All things considered, Kerry's 48.3 percent of the popular vote to Bush's 50.7 percent was pretty good.

But once you've run for president and lost, you're widely viewed as a loser -- even when you win, like Al Gore did in 2000 -- and that isn't helpful going into a presidential campaign.
I'd take Teresa over Johnny.
There were far more voting irregularities in Ohio than there were in Washington State. (Like the widely unreported story about the Ohio county that had 4000 more votes for Bush than it had voters.) Republicans are fighting for a do-over in Washington State and they might get it - espeically if it goes to A "Duck Hunter" Scalia and the Supremes.
