Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world.

In an era where you can’t get two-thirds majorities in Congress to endorse apple pie, it says something that John Kerry was confirmed by the Senate on a 94 to 3 vote.



It says that even in partisan Washington,foreign policy is still relatively bipartisan, that the center far outweighs the extremes.



And it says a lot about John Kerry.  He’s served in the Senate for 30 years. His opinions are well-known, and plenty of those who voted to confirm him have disagreed with him often.  But those who know him best have come to respect his intelligence, his knowledge, his experience and his temperament.



The son of a diplomat, Kerry is now the nation’s top diplomat. And most everyone seems to feel pretty good about it.
