Pondering a second act for Kerry

Boston Globe reported Is John Kerry's future behind him? Put another way, is the 2008 presidential campaign that Kerry hopes to wage merely a political pipe dream given his 2004 loss, or could he actually be a serious candidate?
I wonder what he is smoking in that political pipe.
Kerry obviously thinks he's viable.
Run Kerry Run!!!
Queried recently on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" about a Gentlemen's Quarterly story portraying him as a skunk at a Democratic garden party, the senator all but dropped the pretense that the prospect of a second presidential campaign lies too far off to contemplate, and instead made it clear that the derision of Democratic insiders wouldn't affect his decision.

When Stephanopoulos noted that the Democrats haven't nominated a previous loser since Adlai Stevenson in 1956, Kerry cited the second-time-around victories for Richard Nixon and, after a fashion, Ronald Reagan. "Maybe the Republicans know something we don't," he said.
Republicans know a LOT of things Democrats don't. In fact they are too numerous to list.
Still, if one is to believe GQ, the party's Washington establishment wishes the 2004 nominee would simply wander off into that lonely wilderness where Democratic losers usually go.
If you need directions, ask Al Gore.
