John Kerry had a hectic Wednesday. By day, he helped dedicate a bust of Winston Churchill at the Capitol; by night, he was a hardcore Red Sox fan. The Secretary of State raced to Boston for Game 6 of the World Series to cheer on his team, with a great seat in the first row. And the victory was especially sweet for Kerry, a source tells us: The last time Kerry attended a sixth game of the World Series was in 1986, the infamous time Bill Buckner missed the ground ball.

The former Massachusetts senator was still celebrating Thursday morning: He showed up in D.C. bright and early for his 8:30 a.m. staff meeting wearing a World Series champion hat. (Plus, there was that gif making the rounds online of Kerry high-fiving Jacoby Ellsbury, after the center fielder scored in the fourth inning.)
