At a time when the base of the Democratic party is desperately looking for fresh new leadership, a 2020 run by Kerry would be a disaster. It would work out pretty well for Trump, though.
Kerry got beaten by George W. Bush in 2004. How could he even be thinking of trying again?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Kerry Doesn’t Rule out 2020 Presidential Campaign
Former Secretary of State John Kerry told CBS’s “Face the Nation” anchor Margret Brennan in a recent interview that he’s not ruling out a 2020 presidential run.
“Talking about 2020 right now is a total distraction and waste of time,” Kerry told Brennan. “What we need to do is focus on 2018. We need to win back the confidence of the country to move in a better direction and to do it in sensible ways.”
Earlier this year, there were reports Kerry was considering another presidential run. Kerry previously served as lieutenant governor of Massachusetts and as a senator from the Bay State before he lost a run for president in 2004 against former President George W. Bush. Years later, he replaced Hillary Clinton to become the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama.
“We are in a moment of crisis for our country. The world is in a moment of crisis,” Kerry added.
Kerry is a swamp creature of the highest magnitude. We should almost hope he runs.
