Bob Graham

Bob Graham, a political veteran whose low-key style failed to gain traction in the crowded Democratic presidential race, ended his campaign on October 6, 2003. "I'm leaving because I have made the judgment that I can not be elected president of the United States," Graham said in announcing his exit from the race on CNN's "Larry King Live." He said he was not successful because he started his campaign too late and had trouble raising money. He said he delayed his entry in the race to lead the Senate Intelligence Committee, recover from heart surgery and wait for the war in Iraq, which he opposed.
