Hillary Clinton reportedly said 'that was my last race' after losing election

In "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign", by The Hill's Amie Parnes and Sidewire's Jonathan Allen, the authors discuss Sanders' response to a script for the campaign ad he received in September. Steve Schale, among the most reliable Democratic strategists in the state, informed Clinton's campaign they were short on votes.

So we can only imagine what was going through Hillary Clinton's mind as she had to concede the victory to arch nemesis Donald Trump.

"You need to concede", Obama told Clinton as the results came in and it was apparent that she had been defeated.

When the announcement came that Trump had won, most of the news was centered around that and what a Trump-led America would look like.

Years before Hillary Clinton's private email server ever became a campaign issue, Clinton spent a few months doing some digital snooping on her own staff. Those of us who were watching that evening know she did not make the call to congratulate Trump until nearly 3:00 A.M. ET.

In fact, Hillary and husband Bill Clinton got into a bitter bickering match with top advisors on multiple occasions during the campaign trail, the tell-all asserts. And we know how the Clintons responded, at the moment when the country told them: No more.

Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election ranks as one of the greatest upsets in American political history. "I mean it was evident to her campaign team that she was having trouble".

Her campaign was badly organized - The campaign lacked focus and had power decentralized, making it hard to focus on particular issues. The autopsy on the Democratic candidate's 2016 campaign has unveiled several interesting tidbits, some of which show that insiders always knew Clinton's presidential bid was rife with disaster. The script sent to Sanders had him praising Clinton's ideas on healthcare and education, while slamming Trump's economic policy. Obama's legacy and the dreams of her presidency lay shattered at Donald Trump's feet. The book says: 'Hillary winces.

Soon after, President Barack Obama personally phoned her and told her there was no coming back and she had to concede.

"She was doing her preparatory work on the debate, and he would cut her off and say, that's not very good, and finally she got exhausted of it and said, 'why don't you try it, ' and she turned around and made him play her, and she kept cutting him off, and telling him he wasn't doing a very good job".

And why was not she able to convey that message, something her husband, two-term president Bill Clinton was an expert at?
