John Kerry says he hasn’t absolutely, completely ruled out another bid for the White House, but don’t bet on it.
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.”
The former Massachusetts senator lost to then-President George W. Bush in 2004. Now, Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton, has emerged as the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
