Retiring St. Louis area Congressman Richard Gephardt says he’s looking forward to a new chapter in his life in which he can do a lot of different things that will be fun and interesting. Gephardt was on John Kerry’s short list of potential runnming mates – The New York Post erroneously reported yesterday morning he was the choice. Gephardt says he’ll campaign for Kerry, but he’s looking forward to other opportunities in academia and business. One longtime Gephardt aide has told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Gephard would probably get heavy consideration for a cabinet slot if Kerry wins.
