Hillary Clinton made her first public appearance in quite a while on Thursday, and a group of young liberal women were so overwhelmed by her presence that they broke down crying:
Hillary Clinton was greeted by sobbing, ecstatic women on her way out of an event on Capitol Hill in Washington on Thursday.
The ardent supporters thanked the Democratic presidential nominee for running for president, albeit unsuccessfully. The group of 20-something-year-olds cried as Clinton shook their hands.

Clinton was on Capitol Hill to speak at Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s portrait unveiling in the Russell Senate Office Building. Clearly she’s still not over her loss:
“This is not exactly the speech at the Capitol I hoped to be giving after the election,” Clinton said. “But after a few weeks of taking selfies in the woods, I thought it would be a good idea to come out.”
No word on which trails Clinton will be lurking this week.
