John Kerry has announced he will not be running for President. This is good news for everybody. The only reason Kerry became the 2004 Democrat nominee is that he charmed the states with early primaries despite being a weak candidate. The 2008 Presidential election seems likely to offer some legitimate talent and Kerry rightly recognized that he couldn’t compete. So, everyone already knew that Kerry wouldn’t be the next President. By making his announcement yesterday, he acknowledges that he is reluctantly yielding to reality. John, I’ll keep voting for you in Senate elections, but I am not going to use my 2008 Presidential vote to support the Peter Principle.
