Most people make their political endorsements in interviews or op-eds. The women of the Senate make theirs in a secret ritual cloaked in on-trend witchy secrecy. All of the female Democratic Senators signed a private letter to Hillary Clinton early this year, urging her to run for president in 2016— even those who are also floated as potential candidates. Or it was private, until Senator Kay Hagen let it slip at an EMILY’s List event yesterday, prompting apologies from her office to the other senators. “All of the Senate Democratic women have written her a letter encouraging her to run,” the North Carolina Senator said, according to Capital NY. The letter was reportedly organized by High Priestess Barbara Boxer. “I have repeatedly said — publicly, privately and in writing — that Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2016,” she told ABC News. “I can only speak for myself. I’ll leave it to my colleagues to describe their views.”
