Some people just don’t know when it’s time to get off the stage. John Kerry is an excellent example. There are literally dozens of young Democrats who have been waiting for the Clinton generation to get out of the way so they can rise to higher office. John Kerry wants to compete with them in 2020.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Report: John Kerry Considering a 2020 Presidential Run
Former Secretary of State John Kerry told a Palestinian official that he is seriously considering running for president in 2020, according to a report in Israeli media.
The Hebrew-language newspaper Ma’ariv reported that Kerry recently met with Hussein Agha, a close associate of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, in London, according to the Jerusalem Post.
The former top diplomat in the Obama administration told Agha not to yield to President Donald Trump and that Trump may not even be in office next year.
Kerry then “surprised” Agha by saying he was “seriously considering” a White House run in 2020.
“When asked about his advanced age, he said he was not much older than Trump and would not have an age problem,” the Jerusalem Post reported.
Kerry is three years older than Trump. If elected in 2020, he would be 77 years old when he took the oath of office, making him easily the oldest president ever elected (and the same age as Ronald Reagan when he left office).
The younger, far left base of the Democratic party will have zero interest in a John Kerry candidacy in 2020. If he runs, he won’t even make it through the primaries.
