Senator John Kerry, who lost to George W Bush in 2004, will not run for US president in 2008, he has said.I think it is just as well that he's not running. I was not happy that he won the nomination last time around. If he couldn't beat Bush in 2004 he has no business running again.
The Massachusetts Democrat had been thought to be considering another run, and had kept campaign staff and a fundraising operation in place.
But he would have faced an uphill battle for his party's nomination, given the likely candidacies of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
A visibly emotional Mr Kerry made the announcement on the Senate floor.
