A substantial announcement:Massachusetts: The Boston Globe reports:
Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he is bowing out of the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials. ...So there you go. It simplifies the 2008 Democratic presidential primary field a little, and probably frustrates more than a couple MA Congressmen.
Kerry plans to make his plans known with a speech on the Senate floor this afternoon, and is taping a message to e-mail his supporters to explain his decision.
