Let's all welcome John Kerry 2020

Not sure if he would be discussing his plans in public BUT ...

NBC:

Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden's highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid "the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole."

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying "maybe I'm f---ing deluding myself here" and explaining that to run, he'd have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to "raise a couple of million," adding that such donors "now have the reality of Bernie."

Asked about the call later Sunday, Kerry said he was "absolutely not" contemplating joining the Democratic primary race. He reiterated the sentiment in a tweet later, saying "any report otherwise is f---ing (or categorically) false." Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and reposted it without the expletive.

As I told the reporter, I am absolutely not running for President. Any report otherwise is categorically false. I’ve been proud to campaign with my good friend Joe Biden, who is going to win the nomination, beat Trump, and make an outstanding president.

It seems that there will be so many potential new candidates that we may need air-traffic control for the number of swoops we might have!!

In short, John Kerry purposely leaked his fake conversation to a reporter to get a feeler out there to see how people would react if he would possibly run.

So if Kerry is so indiscrete as to "leak accidentally" in a public restaurant so confidential information would that make him suitable to hold the highest office? I guess sure everyone makes mistakes or he did it on purpose......or he's an idiot.

All nonsense. I believe the time for him to get on any meaningful ballots for primaries has passed.

He's not an idiot. But he's sure that we are.

They'd have to swap on a wide-angle lens to get his chin in the frame. Jesus H.

We could probably start a whole new thread for "John Kerry walks into a bar" jokes.

Nobody gets a complete pass from me for avoiding the draft but it was a different era and war. Many thousands of good people did the same during the Vietnam War.
Kerry on the other hand joined then went incountry and committed stolen valor to pad his mil medals and get out of the war which puts him in a bottom feeder role as a GI. Only thing worse was one who conspired with the enemy.

Might be a bottom feeder. At least he never claimed that venereal disease was his Vietnam.

Kerry should just enjoy his retirement. Take up gardening or something.
