Secretary of State John Kerry says he's happy to be out of politics and will never seek public office again.

"One of the joys of this job is I'm out of politics," Kerry said Wednesday on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

"I have no plans whatsoever. This is my last stop."

Story continues below video.



Kerry was the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, but narrowly lost to incumbent President George W. Bush. Before being tapped to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton one year ago, he had served in the U.S. Senate for 28 years.

Clinton is expected to seek the Democratic nomination in 2016, and currently leads polls by wide margins. Vice President Joe Biden also is being talked about as a possible candidate, but Kerry said he has no desire to jump in the fray.

"I'm going to serve the country in the extraordinarily privileged position the president has given me, [take on] the great challenges that I have, and move on," he said.
