Why did 17 female Democratic senators send a secret letter to Hillary Clinton? Was it to urge her to run for president? And if so, why was it secret?
Political columnist Ana Marie Cox wrote about the letter in The Guardian:
News reports about the letter dutifully concluded that its "existence adds momentum to the growing sense of inevitability around a Clinton candidacy in 2016", but its authors' insistence that it was intended for Hillary's eyes only implies just the opposite. If, as unnamed aides explained, the "letter ... was meant to be a private show of support ... urging Clinton to do what much of the Democratic party assumes she will", then maybe Hillary's friends in the Senate know something "much of the Democratic Party" doesn't?
