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 \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

I’m closing out 2012 on an unusually positive note. As I explained at length in my column Sunday, I see it as a year of tipping points, in which America made decisions on contentious issues — gay marriage, marijuana, taxes, government, immigration, Obama. Not that everyone agrees or that everything is solved, but I’m upbeat about 2013 and the years to come. Maybe it’s partly personal, reflecting confidence in my children and their young adult peers.  In any event, I welcome your thoughts on the tipping point thesis. And I thank all readers and contributors joining in the conversation in the year ending and the year to come.
