John Kerry was asked over the weekend if his "botched joke" about Iraq has caused him to reconsider the possibility of another presidential run in 2008. "Not in the least," he said. "The parlor game of who's up, who's down, today or tomorrow, if I listened to that stuff, I would never have won the nomination."
