Don't Run, John!

A little over a week ago Ellen Goodman wrote a piece in the Boston Globe that warrants a little more exposure. She asked John Kerry not to run again, and personally I think her idea is a good one. Kerry was a terrible candidate who lost because his own ineptitude. You can point to advisors like Schrum, but the campaign was Kerry's to win against a fop of an opponent, and he lost it by being stiff, stupid, and thoroughly sold out.

The request that Kerry not run extends to all Democrats who favor the neocon adventurism in the Middle East. But in Kerry's case the request is primarily, and make sure you understand this, John, because you do not represent the mainstream Democratic interests and you are a terrible candidate.
