Another day, another endorsement for Hillary Clinton from a major publication. Vogue magazine announced on Tuesday it is backing the Democratic presidential nominee in what turns out to be another first, joining several historically conservative newspapers in making what are turning out to be unprecedented political endorsements. “Vogue has no history of political endorsements. Editors in chief have made their opinions known from time to time, but the magazine has never spoken in an election with a single voice. Given the profound stakes of this one, and the history that stands to be made, we feel that should change.” In the endorsement the editors go on to note that the magazine has “enthusiastically covered Hillary Clinton’s career, her rise from Yale law student to governor’s wife to first lady to senator to secretary of state” in a total of six profiles over the years. Vogue acknowledges that the endorsement shouldn’t come as a surprise, and, not surprisingly, too, Clinton picked up the endorsement of the school newspaper at her alma mater, Wellesley College, on Tuesday. What may have come as a surprise to Trump (though perhaps no one else at this point) is that the school newspaper at his alma mater, The University of Pennsylvania, also endorsed Clinton on Tuesday. The two papers, the The Wellesley News and The Daily Pennsylvania, made the announcement in a joint statement. The roar of laughter you heard was everyone at Clinton campaign headquarters when they saw the news on Twitter.
