Hillary Clinton says she’s officially retired as an office-seeking politician.
This comes nine years after getting defeated by Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential primary and also 10 months after getting defeated by Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
She said on CBS’s Sunday Morning: “I am done with being a candidate. But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.”
Clinton admits that she’s still in pain from losing the election, perhaps because of her belief that Trump wasn’t and isn’t prepared to be president.
Clinton added: “We have a reality show that leads to the election of a president. He ends up in the Oval Office. He says, ‘Boy, it’s so much harder than I thought it would be. This is really tough. I had no idea.’ Well, yeah, because it’s not a show. It’s real. It’s reality for sure.”
Clinton is currently on a book tour for What Happened, her memoir from the presidential campaign.
