Control your excitement: Kerry doesn't rule out a presidential bid in 2016

You know the Democrats have a thin bench and worries about Hillary when John Kerry, fresh off his triumph in being rated the worst secretary of state in the last 50 years in a survey of historians, drops a hint that he may run for the Democratic nomination in 2016. Jonathan Topaz of Politico reports:

At the end of a wide-ranging interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd pressed Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, whether there was a scenario in which he would run again for president in 2016.

“I have no scenario whatsoever in my mind,” Kerry said. “I haven’t thought about it. As you can tell, pretty busy.”

When Todd asked, “is it a never say never?” Kerry replied: “Well, nobody says never. But I mean, I have no concept of it.”

So if Hillary changes her mind, has more health problems, or suffers an unfortunate incident (perhaps sniper fire?), the Democrats are left with Biden, Kerry, or maybe Fauxcahontas. All of them qualified for Social Security payments.
