Former Senator, former presidential candidate and former Secretary of State John Kerry could be yet another name tossed into the ring of contention for the Democrat nomination in 2020.
And if he does he’ll be something like the thirtieth potential contender on the Democrat side of the ledger.
It’s getting to be a mosh pit of also-rans.
One might be inclined to think Kerry’s aged out by now, given that he lost his previous bid thirteen years ago.
Yet he’s still younger than the Dems’ runner-up, Bernie Sanders, who’s still going strong.
In short order, the Dems’ favorite epithet for the GOP — the party of old white guys — won’t be so apropos anymore.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Pompous former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry would not rule out running for the White House again in 2020 when pressed by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. Kerry said he had no plans to run at this time though.
“I don’t have any plans right now, honestly,” Kerry said on MSNBC when asked if he might make another run.
Host Joe Scarborough and others noted that wasn’t a firm denial, and pressed Kerry to talk more about whether he would entertain a run.
“You’re a troublemaker,” Kerry replied.
Can you imagine debates between Trump and Kerry? It would be like watching Rodney Dangerfield and Ted Knight in Caddyshack.
Age was part of Scarborough’s reasoning for pressing Kerry on the issue.
Scarborough noted that Kerry is younger than some of the Democrats who might run against President Trump in 2020, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The Pyramids are younger than some of the Democrats who might run against President Trump. So are the Easter Island statues to which Kerry bears a strong resemblance.
Personally I think John Kerry should just stick to what he’s good at: marrying into ketchup fortunes.
