Red Sox Bring Bipartisanship to Washington

The Boston Red Sox, "once lovable losers who have won three World Series since 2004, are now the team that seemingly every politician, operative, and staffer wants to be associated with," the Boston Globe reports.

"Testy press aides suddenly became giddy fans. Warring members of Congress stood in line together to get photos with ballplayers. And on the White House lawn, the group collectively rose as the players emerged, singing along to 'Sweet Caroline' played by the Marine Corps Band. Indeed, the stressed-out, suited legions who labor in the political and policy trenches seemed to relish a moment that was noncontroversial. In true Washington fashion, the event was heavily scripted. But the joy seemed genuine, nonetheless."
