Oh, how it must suck to be him. WASHINGTON (AP)-AP Video Dashed White House ambitions, John Kerry has learned, can be humbling.
The Massachusetts Democrat is the first failed presidential nominee since George McGovern in 1972 to return to his day job in the Senate, surrounded by White House wannabes.
Kerry insists it hasn't bothered him to watch from the sidelines as current and former cilleagues-including his 2004 running mate, John Edwards-gallop past in pursuit of the Democratic nomination that was his four years ago.
"Life goes on and people get too fixiated on those kinds of things," Kerry, 63, told The Associated Press in an interview. "I feel young enough that there's a lot of future ahead. I don't know what will happen. I haven't said no to (running for president) forever, but it's the right thing for now." No, Lurch, you're going to be stuck with being remembered as history's second biggest sore loser. But maybe Al Gore is hiring. How are you at answering phones?
