"It wasn't a perfect campaign. There is no such thing," Clinton said in a question-and-answer-session with CNN's Christiane Amanpour. "But I was on the way to winning until a combination of (FBI Director) Jim Comey's letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off."
“Hope” and “Change We Can Believe In”
Here’s a sampling of the ones we’ve seen so far. (Did we miss any? )
* “Forward” — official slogan
* “Greater Together” — youth vote initiative
* “Betting on America” — his new bus tour
* “We Don’t Quit” — speech theme
* “Winning the Future” — from 2011 State of the Union address
* “We Can’t Wait” — theme tied to executive orders/GOP obstruction
* “An America/Economy Built to Last” — from 2012 State of the Union
* “A Fair Shot” — speech theme
Instead, Clinton has left behind a rubble of themes adopted and abandoned: At first, she was “renew[ing] the promise of America.” Then, she was “In to Win.” She was “Working for Change, Working for You.” She offered not just “strength and experience” but also “the strength and experience to make change happen” and “the change we need.” She’s “the Hillary I know,” who will “turn up the heat...turn America around.” In the closing days of the race, she started offering a "new beginning."
She reminded the enthusiastic audience packed with women that she ultimately earned 3 million more votes than President Donald Trump.
"If the election were on Oct. 27, I would be your president," Clinton said.
She also highlighted Russia's role in hacking into her campaign's internal emails and subsequently coordinating their release on WikiLeaks. U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating whether Russia coordinated with Trump associates to influence the election.
"He (Russian President Vladimir Putin) certainly interfered in our election," Clinton said. "And it's clear he interfered to hurt me and help his opponent."
Amanpour also asked Clinton whether she was a victim of misogyny.
"Yes, I do think it played a role," she said, adding that misogyny is "very much a part of the landscape politically, socially and economically."
After two unsuccessful presidential campaigns, Clinton is not expected to run for public office again.
"I'm now back to being an active citizen," she said.

bummer cause this is a great thread
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she's taking responsibility for her 2016 election loss but believes misogyny, Russian interference and questionable decisions by the FBI also influenced the outcome.

Why do you all care so much?
Seriously.. if you all just said 'meh' these fools would have no power at all.
Yet you all continuously go 'round the table like it means anything, or it'll change anything..
and they call me crazy..
I think you all secretly like it. It validates your existence or some other deep psychological crap.
when it just makes you all look silly to those that have broken this chain. and lowers the bar for everyone else here.

Eh, I voted with my good, clean conscience.
I voted Libertarian, Gary Johnson because I saw this as a nobody wins situation.
So, HRC is blaming others for her lose when in reality, almost everyone saw through her smoke and mirrors game.
And Trump wins by dumb luck.
Let's move on and hope we have better choices in 2020.
