There’s lots of speculation that John Kerry might run for president again in 2008. Kerry himself feeds the speculation every now and then, while remaining noncomittal.
But his campaign is still around, and still spending some of those millions he neglected to spend before last November 2.
This morning’s Boston Herald reports that the campaign pulled out the checkbook recently and forked over almost $300 for “travel expenses.” More specifically, for unpaid parking tickets owed the city of Boston — a novel interpretation of “travel expenses,” I think.
The Kerry campaign also spent over $3,000 on Red Sox tickets for the game just before last summer’s Democratic National Convention, when Kerry girly-threw out the first pitch. But at least that one was before the election.
Personally, I hope Kerry does run again in 2008. Not only will it put a virtual lock on yet another Democratic defeat, it’s virtually guaranteed to give me a nearly-bottomless pool of material.
And in the end, all politics are personal.
