John Kerry Won't Seek 2008 Presidential Bid


CAPITOL HILL (AP) - Don't look for "John Kerry for President" bumper stickers next year.

A Democratic official says the Massachusetts senator won't reprise his run for the Oval Office in 2008.

The official says Kerry intends to pursue another six-year term in the Senate instead, and will say so on the floor of the Senate later today.

His former running mate, John Edwards, is among nine Democrats who have signaled or announced presidential ambitions. The field also includes Kerry's fellow Democratic Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
