Clinton blames misogyny, FBI, Russia, herself for 2016 loss

She told CNN's Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event.

"It wasn't a ideal campaign, there is no such thing, but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter", she said.

"I can't be anything other than who I am", Clinton admitted.

Clinton blamed "everybody but herself", Republican congressman Jeff Duncan said on Twitter. The release of campaign chairman John Podesta's emails and an October 28 letter to congress by Comey about the FBI reopening the investigation into Clinton's private server are what she blames in the reversal of her lead in the election. "Now the North Koreans are always interested ... in trying to get Americans to try to come to negotiate to elevate their status and their position and we should be very careful about giving that way".

A new book out last month, Shattered, dug into Clinton's campaign and reached some pretty damning conclusions about her team's election efforts - many of which were flagged but ignored during the long journey to the polls.

"I'm now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance", Clinton said to cheers from the audience.

The popular vote has been a source of contention with Trump, who argues that he essentially won the popular vote over Hillary. "What a coincidence. So, I mean, you just can't make this stuff up".

The Democrat added that analysts suggest "if the election had been on October 27, (she) would be your president".

Matt Canter, a senior vice president of the Democratic political firm Global Strategy Group, told the McClatchy publishing group that, in his organization's analysis, Clinton's failure to attract the number of voters Obama did in 2012 accounted for about 70 percent of why she lost. She called writing the book "a painful process" of reliving the campaign.

Even the sudden, unexpected success of Bernie Sanders as a potential Democratic candidate failed to wake up the Clinton campaign to the realities of what was happening. "There is no such thing", she said.

Hillary Clinton said a key to creating opportunities in under-served areas is making sure everyone has access to modern infrastructure like high-speed internet. It was a striking reversal from the measured public persona she had cultivated throughout her career. "Every day that goes by, we find out more about the unprecedented inference, including from a foreign power whose leader is not a member of my fan club", Clinton said, referring to Vladimir Putin.

"I m happy to be the diversion", the former secretary of state said.

The interview didn't sound like one from a politician who was done being in the spotlight, raising questions from pundits about whether she is leaving the door open to a third presidential run in 2020.
