Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. 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. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the & Co. will also come to include you.

In my column today, I throw out a list of things that have me feeling optimistic about the country.† Many will disagree, either because they have a different attitude – America is going to hell in a handbasket, not getting better all the time – or because the things that I find encouraging – progressive viewpoints ascendent, conservatives in disarray – they find worrisome.
Or maybe there are other things that make other people optimistic. If so, feel free to share them.
