Hillary Clinton says she’ll never run for office again

Peoples Digest Online – Hillary Clinton is done running for office — and her final race still haunts her.

The former presidential candidate on Sunday swore off any future bids for public office as she continued reckoning with her surprise defeat in the election she expected to win.

“I am done with being a candidate,” Clinton said in an interview with “CBS This Morning” to promote her new campaign memoir, “What Happened.”

Her vow shoots down speculation from this year that Clinton might mount a future campaign for national office or mayor of New York City. But the former secretary of state, First Lady and New York senator assured she would stay in the game somehow.

“I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake,” she said.

Clinton, 69, is spending the next few weeks promoting her book, which hits stores on Tuesday and tells the tale of her stunning upset by Donald Trump.

In early excerpts from the book, she has admitted some campaign mistakes while still throwing blame on a series of factors — Russian hacking, James Comey, Bernie Sanders — that she blames for her loss.

Clinton struck the same defiant tone on Sunday, admitting that the defeat remains “very painful” for her. “The forces that were at work in 2016 were unlike anything that I’ve ever seen or read about,” she said. “It was a perfect storm.”

She still copped to some crucial errors on the campaign trail — the biggest being her failure to acknowledge what made so many Americans so angry.
