Hillary Clinton

Recently Hillary Clinton went on record to further explain why she lost the November election. “I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost,” she said this Wednesday during a Q&A session at the annual Code Conference in Ranchos Palos Verdes, California.

Hillary Clinton had previously put blame on Russian hackers, the media, and FBI Director James Comey’s last-minute decision to reopen the email probe. Now she claims the DNC are also to blame for their lack of resources. Clinton stated she “inherited nothing” from Democrats after she won the party’s nomination. “It was bankrupt,” said Hillary of the DNC. “It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. I had to inject money into it.” 

Perhaps the lack of resources and assumption she was going to win did impact the election, but is this really what we should be talking about right now?

It all seems a little petty. The Russian controversy is understandably concerning but blaming the DNC… come on Hillary. Does this not just give Trump more fuel to talk about “crooked Hillary” and how Democrats are crying about losing the election?

Hillary told her audience that she isn’t “going anywhere,” but insisted that she would not be running for president again. 

“I have a big stake in what happens in this country…I am very, you know, unbowed and unbroken about what happened because I don’t want it to happen to anybody else,” she said. “I’m going to, you know, keep writing and keep talking and keep supporting people who are on the front lines of the resistance.” 

With all the damage being done by Trump and his team, Democrats need to work together and develop strategies. Clinton will hopefully be a part of this movement. The true story concerning the election and Russians will be uncovered soon enough. For now Democrats need to work together to fight the Trump administration instead of blaming each other. There’s no time for ego in politics.
