And as would be expected from someone working for the company publishing Clinton's book, there was nearly no pressing from Pauley on what Clinton did wrong.

After the election, Clinton said that she did a number of things to boring the pain, feeling "gob-smacked" and "wiped out".

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

She didn't go into detail about what that future involvement might address. "And I should've done a better job of demonstrating, 'I get it, '" she told Pauley. It was about the house the Clinton's bought in anticipation of having to fill it with White House staff and the Secret Service. And, you know, my share of Chardonnay.

Hillary Clinton says her career as a politician are over, but that she's "not done with politics".

"There were a large number of people who didn't care", Clinton said.

Clinton said she isn't ready to fade out of the public eye, even if her days of being a candidate are over. "I just have to wait this out.' But then, midnight, I decided, well, 'you know it looks like it's not going to work'". Clinton added that the Trump supporters were already energized. She will appear on ABC's The View this Wednesday, and CBS' The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on September 19, followed by an interview with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show November 1. And it's clear by this interview Clinton allowed it because it would be one of the easiest possible. You can blame the data, blame the message, blame anything you want - but I was the candidate.

PAULEY: Hillary Rodham Clinton, has spent the last ten months trying to figure out why she isn't president of the United States.

Afterward she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, packed up and went home to their Chappaqua, New York estate. And doesn't it kind of haunt you? .

'But I don't think it was determinative, ' Clinton argued.

PAULEY: So what did happen? "Losing is hard for everyone, but losing a race you thought you would win is devastating", she writes in her new book, What Happened, which is excerpted in Vogue's October issue. It doesn't fit into the stereotype we all carry around in our head. And a lot of the sexism and the misogyny was in service of these attitudes.

One could imagine Clinton crafting a final, meaningful political chapter for herself aimed at inspiring a women's movement so that 53 percent of white females won't vote for the next toxic masculinity candidate just because he's white; or challenging the conservative billionaires' decades-long effort to dilute or suppress poor and brown votes by gerrymandering and using the courts. Yeah, millions of white people.
