Interesting: No White House Run For Warner in ’08

Democrat Mark R. Warner, the former governor of Virginia, has decided not to run for president in 2008, Democratic officials said Thursday. Warner scheduled a late morning news conference in Richmond to make the announcement, according to two Democratic officials who refused to be identified because they did not want to upstage Warner’s announcement.

“Since Warner left the governor’s office in January, he has busily toured key states in the Democratic nomination process, particularly New Hampshire and Iowa. His political action committee, Alexandria-based Forward Together, has raised money for Warner’s exploratory effort and for other Democratic candidates in this year’s midterm elections.

“The reason for Warner’s announcement was not immediately known.”

Not that I really care or anything (he always struck me as a foreign policy lightweight with very little to say), but it certainly bodes well for those of us hoping for another Kerry run in ’08.
