The Botched Joke Heard ‘Round the World

The idea of a second presidential run by John Kerry in '08 may be too much even for Teddy Kennedy. Massachusetts' senior senator told the Boston Globe he won't wait forever to back Kerry.

"I was under more of the impression before that he was going to run and was waiting in time [to declare his candidacy], but now he's deferred that decision," Kennedy said. "I have no plans of supporting anyone else at this juncture. I'm also not going to just wait indefinitely until he's made a judgment or a decision."

Teddy later issued a "clarifying statement" saying that he hadn't retracted his endorsement of Kerry and still planned to support the Bay State's junior senator if he declares his candidacy in the "near term."
