WAMC's Ian Pickus speaks with Boston Globe reporter Bryan Bender about Massachusetts Senator John Kerry's confirmation hearings.

The 2004 Democratic presidential nominee was received warmly as he answered questions from the same table that launched his public career, as a Vietnam veteran and critic, four decades earlier.
