Kerry's 2008 campaign and the DNC
Further newsposts confirming that JFK is aiming at 2008 comes from TKS (citing The Hill):
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is vetting the leading candidates to be the next Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman, and asking them to remain neutral in the presidential selection process in 2008. It is the latest indication that Kerry is putting down markers to run again for the party’s presidential nomination in 2008.Dean is said (by opposition candidates) to be the front-runner. Kerry has to be leery of Dean as DNC chair. But perhaps he thinks in a showdown Dean is more likely to help him than Hillary? I would love to be a fly-on-the-wall to hear Kerry knocking this one about with his aides.
