Clinton: I am done with being a candidate

11 September 2017

"I am done with being a candidate", she told CBS' Jane Pauley, in her first major TV interview since her defeat in the 2016 presidential election.

Addressing President Trump's debate tactic of looming into her personal space - "It was so discombobulating" - Clinton praised her own composure, but noted that failing to more boldly repudiate Trump did not serve her well.

Interviewer Jane Pauley asked her: "What you're saying is millions of white people?".

"Millions of white people", Clinton confirmed. Yeah, millions of white people.

WASHINGTON ― Hillary Clinton on Sunday declared the end of her career as "an active politician", but she she will remain involved in the political fray through other means.

Messi hat-trick fires Barca past Espanyol; Levante hold Real
Espanyol almost pulled a goal back just before the break when Pablo Piatti rattled the upright from the edge of the box. Messi scored the first goal in the 26th minute when he evaded two markers to unleash a shot from close range.

While recalling her election night experience, Clinton expressed that the morning after, she had only written a victory speech and hadn't drafted a concession speech.

Clinton said that stereotypes, sexism, and misogyny played a role in why people could not wrap their brains around electing a female president into office. I really struggled, I couldn't feel, I couldn't think. You can blame the data, blame the message, blame anything you want - but I was the candidate.

In recent weeks, Mr Trump has found himself at the centre of mounting controversy over what critics say has been his support for white supremacists and racists.

CLINTON: Well, I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner... But there was one person who could help her cope: Bill. And - you know, my share of Chardonnay, ' Clinton admitted.

"Why do you think that word "deplorable" was circulating in your mind?"

"You fed into that though, when you said 'basket of deplorables, ' you energized...", Pauley began to respond.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Clinton saved her most vehement invective for opponent Bernie Sanders, an Independent Senator from Vermont, whom she defeated in the 2016 Democratic Primary.

"I don't buy that, I don't buy that. And I should have me take much better to make them understand that I understood", she acknowledged.

"But I'm a former first lady, and former presidents and first ladies show up", she said.

Clinton looked back on her private email server scandal as the move that cost her the election.
