Leno doesn't want to become butt of his own jokes.

HOLLYWOOD - In a pre-election upset, Tonight Show host Jay Leno has dumped John Kerry and asked Johnny Depp to run in Kerry's place.

"I prefer the vice presidential office," Leno told reporters, "It's less stressful, more fun and I could keep my full-time job as a comedian."

Just days ago, John Kerry offered the Democratic VP running slot to Depp who was said to be heavily considering acceptance.

A source close to the actor said Depp, now faced with running for president, "feels the role just wouldn't be much of a challenge because there's no depth to the character... [the] role of vice president is far more appealing."

The Spoof will present updates of this ongoing Democratic candidacy issue as they develop.
