Is John Kerry going to jump in the 2020 race?

February 3, 2020

  If the recent polls are accurate Bernie Sanders could be poised to win the Iowa caucus tonight and this has the Democratic establishment very worried. As we have been discussing here, the Democratic leadership is very worried the voters might actually chose the Vermont socialist because they do not believe he has any chance of winning the general election.

  The concern runs so deep that the Democratic National Committee is discussing a change to the superdelegate rules in order to screw Bernie Sanders over once again. The Democratic National Committee has also changed the debate requirements for qualification so that Michael Bloomberg will make the stage because the committee is not enthralled with the “big three.”

  And then yesterday a rumor started circulating that John Kerry might actually throw his hat in the ring in order to stop Bernie Sanders from getting the nomination. The former Massachusetts Senator and failed Presidential candidate is denying the report. Here is more:

Kerry told the outlet that he was “absolutely not” considering a last-minute entry into the race, calling the situation a “complete and total misinterpretation based on overhearing only one side of a phone conversation.”

“A friend who watches too much cable called me wondering whether I’d ever jump into the race late in the game if Democrats were choosing an unelectable nominee,” he told NBC News.

“I listed all the reasons I could not possibly do that and would not — and will not under any circumstances — do that,” he added.

He also immediately denied the report on Twitter.

“As I told the reporter, I am absolutely not running for President. Any report otherwise is fucking (or categorically) false),” he originally tweeted before deleting the tweet and reposting another version without the expletive.

  John Kerry sounds pretty adamant about not throwing his hat in the ring and I actually believe him but I wanted to write about this story because I find one aspect of his denial very interesting.

  Nowhere in his denial when he was explaining the conversation he had with a friend about the possibility of the Democratic voters nominating an unelectable candidate did John Kerry actually come to Bernie Sanders’s defense.

  You would think he would have told his friend he did not need to jump in the race because Bernie Sanders is a good candidate if he thought it was true but he did not. I think this is yet another example of how the establishment actually feels about Bernie Sanders.

    First off, I don’t believe anything any of them say. Second and more interesting, is what it says about all the people who have ran, and are running for 2020. Basically, the DNC says there isn’t a single one that is worth a Schiff. On this one point, I agree with the DNC.

      I agree, I think the DNC considers this to be a very weak field and they are hoping and praying somebody else will come along. I find this whole thing to be entertaining.
