HOW DO YOU SAY DIA DE LOS MUERTES IN FRENCH?:

Presidential Also-Ran Shows No Signs of Fading Away: Sen. Kerry goes against precedent, getting back in the political spotlight in a leadership role. (Mark Z. Barabak, February 20, 2005, LA Times)

Since losing in November, the Massachusetts Democrat has delivered a series of speeches on healthcare, electoral reform and military preparedness. He helped lead the unsuccessful opposition to Condoleezza Rice, President Bush's pick for secretary of State, and Alberto R. Gonzales, Bush's choice for attorney general. [...]

The prospect of a repeat Kerry candidacy — perhaps facing his old running mate, former Sen. John Edwards, in the primaries — draws a decidedly mixed response. Republicans express delight.

But I have read that Kerry and Edwards talk every day on the phone, chatting away like old friends.

Perhaps they are plotting against their real rival. How delicious.

This is very temporary. Sometime this summer he'll be the Center Square on Hollywood Squares.

As soon as the foreign born are allowed to run for President, Te-Ray-Zah will dump him like a bad habit and become Tereza Heinz Fabio.

Pedantic nitpick alert. "Los muertos" is "the dead". "La muerte" (no plural) is "death".

In French, it's "le jour des morts"

Unfortunately, there are also former presidents who refuse to fade away.

And one former president who may return (hopefully not) to the white House as FIRST GENTLEMAN (gag, cough).

Tereza Heinz-Kerry-Heinz for US Senate from Pennsylvania '08.
