Teresa Heinz Kerry

She could be the next first lady of the United States, but the outspoken Teresa Heinz Kerry doesn’t think her husband John – or anyone for that matter – is qualified to be president.

“I think nobody is truly qualified to be president of the United States,” she tells Reader’s Digest. “I mean, are you qualified to run the world … not run it, but have that influence? No, nobody is.”

The less-than-ringing endorsement for her husband, the Democratic nominee for the White House, left the magazine in a strange position, writing that the “message she left hanging in the air” was “Vote for John. He’s less poorly qualified than the other guy.”

Heinz Kerry is expecting plenty of bizarre coverage as the race for the White House enters the final stretch toward Nov. 2.

“I’m sure there will be stories that I’ve given birth to children from Mars. You know there are a lot of bored people out there,” she said.
