Hillary Says She's 'Done With Being a Candidate'

In a CBS Sunday Morning interview with anchor Jane Pauley (Clinton taped the segment Friday at her NY home), Clinton looked back at the past 10 months and shared some inside perspective of the campaign against Donald Trump.

But Clinton didn't stop at excoriating her rivals - even former Vice President Joe Biden, a Clinton campaign surrogate, wasn't safe from criticism.

Pauley then pressed on: "What you're saying is millions of white people?". "Millions of white people", Clinton replied. Millions of white people.

She said she made the decision as a former first lady to attend Trump's inauguration which felt like an "out-of-body experience", calling his speech a "cry from the white nationalist gut".

Today's interview, conducted in Clinton's home outside New York City, showed the former nominee apparently still uncomfortable with what happened in last year's election - and admitting she was unprepared for the conditions in the United States that led to Trump's victory. It's part of the demonstration of the continuity of our government. "I really struggled, I couldn't feel anything, I couldn't think, I was just stunned and totally exhausted".

"I am done with being a candidate".

Trump supporters and other conservatives jumped on the comment and used it to paint Clinton as an out-of-touch elitist.

Not only did she only draft a winning-speech, but she also purchased a home next door to the Clinton family's NY property as a location for White House staff and security.

"I just felt this enormous letdown, just kind of loss of feeling and direction and sadness, ' she said".

We've never been here for a team to sing their fight song on our field. "Quite frankly, it's just embarrassing". Five of Andrews' catches went for first downs, including a 45-yard gain on a third-and-8 in the second quarter.

"I thought a lot of his appeals to voters was deplorable".

The Women's March in January was organized in response to the election of Mr. Trump, and many marchers were Hillary supporters.

However, Clinton added she was not finished with politics entirely because our "future is at stake". "There were a large number of people who didn't care".

Clinton calls her use of a private email server while at the State Department "dumb".

"I've said it before, I'll say it again, that was my responsibility".

"I think this time we're in, particularly in this campaign, you know, maybe I missed a few chances", Clinton told Pauley.

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.
