You can take the senator out of the Senate, but you can't take the Senate out of the senator, it seems.

Consider Secretary of State John Kerry, for 28 years a Massachusetts senator, for example.

Sources tell Secrets that Kerry left Foggy Bottom to sneak into the Capitol Thursday, trailing a team of security and staff, to meet with top leaders.

They tell us that it was a spontaneous visit with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Kerry's replacement on the Foreign Relations Committee, Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez, for a visit in the majority leader's office.

That's doing business and diplomacy the old fashioned way--person to person, minus the press corps.
