Hillary Says She's 'Done With Being a Candidate'

Posted September 11, 2017

This week, Clinton is scheduled to appear on ABC's "The View" and the popular center-left podcast "Pod Save America", and she will attend a book signing in NY.

Defeated presidential candidates don't typically attend the inauguration, but as Pauley pointed out, Clinton, who was in attendance, is a former First Lady.

Early excerpts from the book have shown her admitting some mistakes from her campaign but still pinning blame on a series of factors - Russian hacking, James Comey, Bernie Sanders - for her upset by Donald Trump.

Clinton's remarks on Sunday (Monday NZT) came a little more than a year after she gave a major campaign speech in which she described the "disturbing" connection between Trump's campaign and the "alt-right", a movement associated with white nationalism.

Diane Hessen, the author of the internal study, found that after Clinton's remark, "all hell broke loose" among the group of voters she was tracking at the time.

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.

Not only did she only draft a winning-speech, but she also purchased a home next door to the Clinton family's NY property as a location for White House staff and security.

"It just stopped my momentum", Clinton said. "I couldn't feel, I couldn't think, I was just gobsmacked".

"I relied on several tools, one of which was prayer, and I was lifted up and blessed by a lot of people who sent me prayers, sent me spiritual readings", Clinton said Thursday. "And doesn't it kind of haunt you, " she wanted to know.

The erstwhile presidential hopeful opened up about what she thinks was the biggest of her mistakes: using a personal email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

"She paints decent Americans, you, as racists", Trump told a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire, after her speech. "I was just gob-smacked, wiped out", Clinton recalled.

Clinton said she'll remain in national dialogue because she's concerned about the direction of the country, but she's not making a political comeback. "I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable".

Trump desperately wants to be taken seriously as a president, and Hillary Clinton's little jab struck the President square in the ego.

She said the word "deplorable" was floating around in her head because 'Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner'. And there were a large number of people who didn't care.

Pauley seemed to share some of Clinton's resentment for those who voted against her. "It didn't matter to them". "And he turned out to be a very effective reality-TV star", Clinton said.

"I don't know quite what audience he was playing to", Clinton remarked. "And I should've done a better job of demonstrating I get it".
