1. this is so wonderful

This is ALL so wonderful. The sheer joy on Kerry's face, even in the way he walks. . . it almost brings tears to my eyes.
Also-hey-he seems to be getting more press than ever. And it's actually respectful press! He so deserves this.

3. Everything you said

This seems like the last week of the campaign when he was surging towards a win.

I suspect that the press will not continue - even when Clinton was SOS there were periods where she was not that present in the media. In addition, there are so many intractable problems and most may have no US solution, so there will be international things that do not go the way we wanted. That certainly was the case under Clinton as well. I agree though with what Warren said in recommending him to the SFRC - that I am proud when the plane lands and he is representing us. This is a role where his natural grace and manners are useful and important. I also think his willingness to help others find a solution even if it won't bear his name is maybe the talent he has that is most unusual at the level he is at.

I just realized that this might be the first time since Kerry was selected that he was in the same place as Thorne. As Thorne has been with him since they were at Yale, always there for him, this really is a highlight for Thorne as well as Kerry.

4. Boston Globe has an article about Thorne and Kerry.

Behind the firewall, so I can read it and make sure it is not another idiotic Matt Viser's POS, but here it is.

Statecraft is the latest bond for Kerry and Thorne


In 1965, John F. Kerry and David Thorne were college-age kids driving around Europe together in a used English cab they bought for $100 and named Baxter. Inspired by Ernest Hemingway, they went running with the bulls in Pamplona. They drove around England, through France, and along the Italian coast, two young men with a summer to kill. It was a friendship that has shaped Kerry’s life in so many ways that even Hemingway might have found it too far-fetched for a plot line.
