Hillary Clinton, the former Democratic presidential candidate, revealed in her first televised interview that she is not done with politics yet because she literally believes that America’s future is at stake.

The former Secretary of State, however, clarified that she has no plans to run for office again. “I am done with being a candidate,” Clinton said. What Hillary intends to do is to continue to play a role in the public sphere.

It still is very painful

Hillary Clinton, who was mostly out of the public spotlight after the 2016 U.S elections, appeared on CBS “Sunday Morning” and talked about her loss to President Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election.

Clinton said, “It still is very painful… It hurts a lot.”

The former First Lady shared that she felt “enormous let down” and experienced “kind of loss of feeling and direction and sadness.”

How she dealt with and recovered from the pain

Clinton admitted that she had a “very hard transition” after the loss. She described the various activities she resorted to in dealing with her pain, which included closet cleaning, long walks in the woods, playing with her dogs, yoga, and writing her upcoming book, “What Happened.”

The once Senator from New York said that she really struggled, could not feel and think, and just wiped out or “gobsmacked.”

What went wrong

Hillary Clinton also acknowledged and pointed out during the interview that maybe she failed to offer an effective counter-argument on the message that Trump was sending to the U.S electorate.

She particularly recognized the frustrations of “millions of white people” that Donald Trump was able to effectively exploit during the campaign.

Hillary said that Trump was quite successful in "referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances, for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others.”

Clinton said that she tried to offer a solution, however, that was a mistake because a lot of people did not want to listen to her plan.

They wanted her to share their anger instead. She also admitted that it was a gaffe calling Trump voters a “basket of deplorables.

The former Secretary of State acknowledged that her biggest blunder was the use of personal email when she was still America’s top diplomat. Although the former FBI director James Comey eventually cleared her of any criminal charges, he nonetheless called Clinton “careless,” which made an impact.

Hillary Clinton’s interview with CBS “Sunday Morning” is part of the media promotion of her upcoming book “What Happened," which primarily delves into the 2016 elections and its aftermath.
