Description

After wrapping up the longest presidential primary campaign in modern history, Hillary Clinton told reporters Tuesday she is ready to turn her attention back to being the junior senator from New York. “I look forward to being back with this great team,” she said as she returned to the Senate at the end of a two-week vacation, taken after she conceded the 17-month-long primary contest to Sen. Barack Obama. The second-term New York Democrat pledged to “immerse myself in there,” pointing to the chamber. She had just emerged from the party’s weekly luncheon that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called “one of the most emotional caucuses” he’s ever attended on Capitol Hill. He said the New York senator entered the event to a sea of high fives, cheers, and a standing ovation from her Democratic colleagues.
