It was a homecoming for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The New York senator returned to Congress on Tuesday for the first
time since suspending her presidential campaign.
She was greeted with a loud round of applause and hugs from fellow Democrats as they try to bridge the rifts left by a long, bruising presidential primary.
For her part, Clinton said she was "glad to be here."
Inside, Clinton gave a short speech. She said she was glad to be
back, and she plans to do everything she can to help Barack Obama win the White House.
Wednesday, Clinton will visit House Democrats. On Friday, she
travels to New Hampshire for a joint appearance with Obama in the
town of Unity.
