John Kerry

The junior senator from Massachusetts says he won’t run for president. I know that everyone, myself included, has sort of treated Kerry’s 2008 aspirations as a bit absurd and under the circumstances it’s probably better that he spare himself the humiliation. That said, it seems to me that there’s no reason whatsoever to believe that Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Barack Obama, or Mark Warner would actually do a better job of being president and at least a some reason to think Kerry (who, after all, has dramatically more experience in governing) would be better than any of them.

Obviously, though, very little about our presidential nomination process is designed to generate nominees who are likely to make good presidents.
