In 2003-2004, presidential candidate John Kerry, like Al Gore four years earlier, was a stuffy, boring policy wonk, no match for the folksy cowboy George W. Bush.
But maybe, just maybe, had Kerry dropped more jokes on the campaign trail, like the hilarious joke he dropped this morning, he might have had a chance.
“The nation is grateful, the world is grateful. Thank you Hillary Clinton, and thank you, her team,” Kerry said. “As the saying goes, I have big heels to fill.”
Now, if Kerry actually starts wearing high heels, I think he’s got a very real chance at the White House in 2016!
