Kerry Won't Run in 2008
Sen. John Kerry has decided not to run for President in 2008. Smart move. The field is already over-crowded.
In the latest CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, 5 percent of Democrats said Kerry was their top choice for the 2008 nomination, and a little more than half -- 51 percent -- did not want him to be the 2008 nominee.
Kerry trailed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, who led the field of Democratic preferences with 34 percent; Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, with 18 percent; his 2004 running mate, former Sen. John Edwards, who got 15 percent; and former Vice President Al Gore, the party's 2000 presidential nominee, with 10 percent.
I'm close to concluding that Hillary will be the nominee. She's going to get the big bucks from contributors. She's got a team that is honed to the 9th degree. And, she has Bill.
