Hillary Clinton says election defeat left her 'gobsmacked'

Posted September 11, 2017

Since the election, and with a book coming out this week detailing about what happened, Clinton made clear in the Sunday interview that she's done running for public office. And Comey's late October announcement that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which he still headed at the time, had re-opened its inquiry into her treatment of classified information as secretary of state is blamed by many Clinton supporters for her defeat.

Listening to US President Donald Trump's inaugural address was like an "out-of-body experience", says Hillary Clinton. She penned the memoir on the dining room table of a guest house the Clintons had bought to accommodate staff and security for what they thought would be a second Clinton Administration.

On November 9, the morning of her concession speech, she put on a fearless face in public: for her campaign team, for her supporters, for the American public.

Today's interview, conducted in Clinton's home outside New York City, showed the former nominee apparently still uncomfortable with what happened in last year's election - and admitting she was unprepared for the conditions in the United States that led to Trump's victory. 'And then his speech, which was a cry from the white nationalist gut - what an opportunity to say, "OK, I'm proud of my supporters, but I'm the president of all Americans"'. "Well, you know, I didn't do the latter", Clinton said of the St. Louis debate. And - you know, my share of Chardonnay, ' Clinton admitted. "I think the most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email". She also noted that she called then-President Obama because she felt she had "let everybody down".

Democrats Brace for Clinton's Campaign Book: 'There Is a Collective Groan'
Many inside the Democratic Party wish she followed McCain's advice but have accepted that she is charting her own course. She may have felt the straitjacket, but she was a awful candidate who should have been wearing handcuffs.

Clinton said she didn't believer her deplorable comment energized Trump voters. I thought his behavior, as we saw on the Access Hollywood tape, was deplorable. What's more, she "doesn't buy" into the idea that she offended people who weren't already opposed to her candidacy. "Honestly, I wish she'd just shut the fuck up and go away". "I was grateful for the one billionth time that I had a husband who was good company not just in happy times but sad ones as well". "I'm sorry I gave them a political gift of any kind, but I don't think it was determinative", said Clinton.

PAULEY: But you offended some people who didn't personally feel deplorable at all. It did not matter to them, ' Clinton said. "'And, you know, Bill just kept saying, "Oh, you know, that was a terrific speech", tryin" to just kinda bolster me a little bit'.
