Seems to me the electoral college needs to go away. Only in America, you can win the popular vote and lose. (Of course. places like Russia, they seem to have their own nasty elections.)

3 million votes, that is a lot of people that voted for Hillary and those votes are just nothing???

I do agree that Comey had a huge part, in turning people off. Just before an election, making crass remarks about a candidate????
I don't want the people of CA and NY (where millions and millions of people will always vote liberal) to decide my election for me. Lose the electoral college and people in the heart of America might as well not even bother voting.

I am so sick of politics trumping policy. An election is not a freaking football game.

Did anybody sit and watch the whole interview -- or are we all just responding to the sound bites?

However, she added that she believed that she was ahead before Comey, Wikileaks, etc., etc. (what you wrote) based on all the polls showing her comfortable lead.

I don't know what anyone expected her to say. She was ASKED questions and encouraged to answer them while being interviewed at a women's conference. It's as if you expected her to say "I sucked, didn't I? It was probably a big mistake for the Democrats to nominate me."

You fail to mention that she got a lot of applause when she added she won the popular vote by 3 million.

I don't know why this is such a big issue with you. Trump won and she is not the POTUS. Why are there so many Hillary threads?
Nah, it's not a false subject...she actually said that. That's like me cheating on my girlfriend and she breaks up with me and I'm like "it's because of me and I take responsibility...but I also blame you because I'm a dude and you must not like men, and you probably went through my phone and exposed my dirty laundry that I was cheating on you...but...yeah...I'm somewhat a tad bit responsible somehow".

What I bolded is basically what she should have said, actually, if you want to gain people's respect. You didn't see Mitt Romney or John McCain whining about a loss 6 months after the fact. What did they do? They moved on with life. Continuing to not accept the fact that her loss lies SOLELY on her, not any external factors, just shows that she lives in an "alternative" reality. Her winning by 3 million doesn't mean anything since our President's have always been selected by the electoral college.

You either own up completely, or you keep ignoring the fact that you just plain suck by continuing to keep blaming others for your own issues.

That pretty much puts it in perspective right there.......too funny! Not only is she an awful politician, she is an awful person, and most of this country hates her and her family.

She shouldn't still be whining six months later! Did Eric Cantor whine about losing, or blame anyone but himself?

Six months later, in public? Definition of a sore loser...

I'm a male, and I look forward to our first female President. In retrospect, I'm glad it wasn't Hillary.

But that's how it works in the US. She knew she needed electoral votes to win, not just the popular vote. She couldn't get enough. She didn't campaign smart enough.

Calling half the country deplorable didn't help her votes.

"Most of this country hates her and her family," and you know this how?

Now we have the honorable Trump who we all love???? Give me a break.

Was the title of this thread changed in mid stream?

Anyway, Hillary has more class than Trump will ever have. The man is embarrassing. IMO

And it's even her fellow Democrats that have come out and said that she didn't run a good campaign . Not just republicans .

Including Joe Biden

Even the Clinton News Network has published this

Joe Biden indirectly knocks Clinton's failed campaign - CNNPolitics.com
