Hillary Clinton Speaks for First Time Since Concession, Says It 'Wasn't The Easiest' Thing To Do
Hillary Clinton made her first big speech at the Children’s Defense Fund’s Beat the Odds Celebration on Wednesday (November 16) at the Newseum in Washington D.C.
The 69-year-old former Presidential candidate was being honored for her dedication to the organization over the years.
“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.”
