Hillary Clinton's holiday party, which took place Thursday at a fancy New York City hotel, was so somber it was "like a [funeral] wake," according to one attendee who spoke with the New York Post.
"It was a little bit of group therapy and a lot of love," the person added, referencing the group of Democrats.
More from the Post:
Spotted in the crowd were Clinton advisers Huma Abedin, John Podesta and Robby Mook, donors Alan Patricof, Bernard Schwartz, Marc Lasry, Jay Snyder and Robert Zimmerman, designers Vera Wang and Tory Burch, plus Anna Wintour, Harvey Weinstein and restaurateur Danny Meyer.
Also there were Bill and Chelsea Clinton and Chelsea’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky.
The source added in their comments to the Post that there wasn't a "sense" that Clinton's team would get together to make another run at the White House, but there was an overall optimistic feelings in the room after the party.
"No one has any illusion of ‘the band coming back together again,’ but it did bring a sense of closure," the anonymous person said. "There was a spirit of, ‘We have taken the last eight years for granted.’ But people did walk out of there with a mission."
It sounds like the party had a familiar feel to it. Just six weeks ago, the mood inside Clinton's Manhattan "victory headquarters" on Election Day was quite somber when early returns proved to be in favor of President-elect Donald Trump. Later in the night, the room was filled with crying Clinton supporters, while others simply left.
Clinton also appeared to be very sad as she arrived to the party Thursday night, according to the Daily Mail.
