John Kerry: “I’m out of politics”

Senator John Kerry

(CNN) — While his predecessor Hillary Clinton and his colleague Vice President Joe Biden may be contemplating another White House run, Secretary of State John Kerry says he is out for 2016.

“I’m out of politics. I have no plans whatsoever. This is my last stop,” Kerry said in an exclusive interview with CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”

Kerry was the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, losing in a close race to President George W. Bush.

“I’m going to serve the country in the extraordinarily privileged position the President has given me, the great challenges that I have, and move on,” said Kerry.
