After The Atlantic‘s Women of Washington brunch Saturday featuring MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Newsweek‘s Eleanor Clift was spotted outside the Ritz Carlton waiting on valet to retrieve her car.

After chatting a few minutes with a chipper fan who recognized her, a blue Prius pulled up that belonged to Clift. “Of course she drives a Prius,” I said. “She’s socially responsible!” remarked her fan.
