Back to topic. I honestly do not think Kerry has a shot at the nomination in 2008 though he is not a poor candidate on the whole. Hillary Clinton is the clear frontrunner and I seriously doubt anyone could beat her for the nomination. She has roots in the South - Arkansas and she will carry New York and the Northeast quite handily. Al Gore is a dark horse however.

The Democrats need a candidate that can broaden the base of the party to win the White House in 2008. Bill Clinton was a master at this and had superb political skills. I do not think Hillary Clinton can broaden the base of the party though she can raise more money than any other candidate hands over fist. Al Gore, Bill Richardson and Mark Warner have the ability to lean to the center and pick up key swing votes.
