One fewer hopeful...

The Associated Press is reporting that Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry will announce later today that he will NOT be a candidate for president in 2008.

Update: Here's what U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd, another of the Democratic presidential contenders, had to say about the Kerry decision:

“I have great respect for Senator Kerry, who is a valuable member of the Senate and has been a tremendous asset to our country. He served our country as a young man during a time of war and proudly carried the mantle of our party three years ago when he ran a tough and honorable race against a sitting President, again during a time of war.

“We traveled in the Middle East together last month and his belief that America can regain our leadership in the world as well as once again be respected and admired was apparent. He will continue to be an important voice on both the world stage and in the Senate.”
