“I will admit, coming here tonight wasn’t the easiest thing for me. There have been a few times this past week where all I wanted to do was curl up with a good book and our dogs and never leave the house again,” Hillary told the audience (via CNN).

She added, “I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election. I am too, more than I can ever express. But, as I said last week, our campaign was never about one person or even one election. It was about the country we love and about building an America that is hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted.”

    Continuing to stand up and fight for the rights of others – especially the most vulnerable in our society – has always been her motto and her life’s work.

    Doing this in the face of sexist ignorance, in a nation obsessed with the superficial, is never easy.

    This nation has just put itself on a dangerous and suicidal path.

    The lame and destructive sexism of the weak minded always leaves a stench.

    You have no idea how bad it would’ve been if she had won. She was so irresponsible and had awful decision making. The Haiti situation opened my eyes. How bad she is at her job, its crazy. Trump is a flatout wild card. I dont know if he would do good or bad. But I know for a fact Hillary makes poor choices.
