Some people like my clothes and some people don't. It goes with the territory. You can't please everybody, so you may as well wear what works for you.feedback

Sep 14 2017

I did this because I like pantsuits. They make me feel professional and ready to go.feedback

Sep 14 2017

When I ran for Senate in 2000 and President in 2008, I basically had a uniform: a simple pantsuit, often black, with a colorful shell underneath.feedback

Sep 14 2017

I also thought it would be good to do what male politicians do and wear more or less the same thing every day.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - FLOTUS

A uniform was also an anti-distraction technique: since there wasn't much to say or report on what I wore, maybe people would focus on what I was saying instead. They helped me avoid the peril of being photographed up my skirt while sitting on a stage or climbing stairs, both of which happened to me as First Lady.feedback

Sep 14 2017

The more professionally successful we are, the less people like us. Hearing it put that simply, with data behind it, felt like a lightbulb turning on. This, too, resonated with me. People like me when I'm in a supporting role: campaigning for my husband, serving as a member of President Obama's Cabinet. It's okay for me to be a fierce advocate in those capacities. But when I stand up and say, Now I'd like a chance to lead,' everything changes.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Women

I never figured out how to tell this story right, I didn't want people to see me as the 'woman candidate,' which I find limiting, but rather as the best candidate. Other women will run for President, and they will be women, and they will have women's voices. Maybe that will be less unusual by then. Maybe my campaign will have helped make it that way, and other women will have an easier time. I hope so.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

Sep 14 2017

When it first started happening, it was so soon after the election. It was hard for me to comfort somebody who was coming to me and saying, Oh, I wish I had done more,' or, I'm sorry I didn't vote' because I think this was one of the most consequential elections that we have faced in a long time. So, no absolution. But I just hope people will take what happened this time seriously and be ready and willing to vote the next time.feedback

Sep 14 2017

I think it is important to focus on what happened because lessons can be learned. What is important is the fact that the Russians are still going at us. He himself admitted that before Congress.feedback

No nation, particularly an adversarial nation can mess with our democracy. I would have had an independent commission. I would have done everything I could to get to the bottom of it because it's not going to stop. That's what I'm worried about. The rhetoric was so divisive.

It was a terrible time to try and break through the last days of a campaign when I had this hanging over my head.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Watergate

I think it's probably bigger than Watergate because it's about the future. We no longer worry about spies dressed in black. But they break in now … and get through to the core of our being. I believe it did affect people's votes. I believe it cost me votes.feedback

Sep 13 2017

He said his team would be finished with dinner and getting ready to call it a night when we finally got there, completely spent. By the time he woke up the next morning, we'd be long gone. In short, he thought we overdid it.feedback

Sep 13 2017

I'll bet you know more about my private life than you do about some of your closest friends. You've read my emails, for heaven's sake. What more do you need? What could I do to be 'more real'? Dance on a table? Swear a blue streak? Break down sobbing? That's not me.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - NASA

I don't know what it's like for other women, but growing up, I didn't think that much about my gender except when it was front and center. Like in 8th grade, when I wrote to NASA to say that I dreamt of becoming an astronaut, and someone there wrote back: Sorry, little girl, we don't accept women into the space program. Later in life, I started to see myself differently when I took on roles that felt deeply and powerful womanly: wife, daughter to aging parents, girlfriend, and most of all, mother and grandmother.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Feminism

It stopped my momentum. It drove voters from me – understandably. This is not about the voters who were saying, Well wait, what does this mean and how do I evaluate it?' So I think in terms of my personal defeat, that was the most important factor.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Feminism

You know, when I was secretary of state, I came out of that job I think with a 69 percent approval rating because I was in service to our country. I was in service to our president. I was proud to do it. But when a woman walks into the arena and says, I'm going for this myself,' it really does have a dramatic effect on how people perceive.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Feminism

I think there's a lot of evidence, a lot of research, supporting the idea that race is a much more motivating factor for voters than gender is. I write in the book about a conversation I had with Sheryl Sandburg, who has done so much work to really untangle what's realistic in terms of here's what you have to do to be successful and what is tinged, if not effected, by sexism. She says the research is absolutely clear: The professionally successful a man becomes, the more likable he is. The professionally successful a woman becomes, the less likable she is.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Feminism

I searched really hard for that kind of understanding, and I didn't find it.feedback

Sep 13 2017

Bill is my partner in life. Over this last year, we've spent long hours walking the trails behind our house, talking about things I wished I'd done differently in the election. He's listened to me vent. We've shared a lot of quiet moments, too. The time we've spent just being together has made me more grateful than ever for a husband who is good company in happy times and sad. Warrior II is my favorite. It doubles as a great power pose.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Facebook

Even if she gets a salary bump, she'll use a measure of goodwill. We've got to do better. Every single one of us.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Facebook

[Sandberg] told me that if there was one thing she wanted everyone to know from her book, it's this: The data show that for men, likability and professional success are correlated.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Facebook

Hearing it put that simply, with data behind it, felt like a light bulb turning on.feedback

Sep 13 2017

There were plenty of people hoping that I, too, would just disappear. But here I am.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Trump Presidency

I congratulated Trump and offered to do anything I could to make sure the transition was smooth [...] It was all perfectly nice and weirdly ordinary, like calling a neighbour to say you can't make it to his barbecue. It was mercifully brief [...] I was numb. It was all so shocking.feedback

Sep 13 2017

I thought what is he doing … the investigation is closed. I was just dumbfounded. It became clear this was not necessary, he could have called me up. I feel very strongly that he went way beyond his role.feedback

This is what happens in George Orwell's classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Russia

There were all of these outside forces coming at me right until the very end. I didn't get anything like that respect from Sanders and his supporters and it hurt.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

Everyone associated with him… they're either on board with that, or they're not. And if they're not, they need to be speaking out or leaving.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

Can you hear my palm slapping my forehead? Sometimes it seems like Trump didn't even want to be president at all.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

Now I was ticked off. NBC knew exactly what it was doing here. The network was treating this like an episode of The Apprentice, in which Trump stars and ratings soar. Lauer had turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush. What a waste of time.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I doubt that many people reading this will ever lose a presidential election. (Although maybe some have: Hi Al! Hi John! Hi Mitt! Hope you're well!).feedback

Sep 12 2017

After more than 20 years working with Huma, I think the world of her and seeing her in such distress broke my heart. Some people thought I should fire Huma or 'distance myself.' Not a chance. She had done nothing wrong and was an invaluable member of my team. I stuck by her the same way she has always stuck by me.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

Many in the political media don't want to hear about how these things happened and how these things tipped the election in the final days. They say their beef is that I'm not taking responsibility for my mistakes – but I have and I do again throughout this book. Their real problem is they can't bear to face their own role in helping elect Trump, from providing him free airtime to giving my emails three times more coverage than all the issues affecting people's lives combined.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I hadn't prepared mentally for this at all. There had been no doomsday scenarios playing out in my head in the final days, no imagining what I might say if I lost.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Ford

Bernie and I had a spirited contest of ideas, which was invigorating, but I nonetheless found campaigning against him to be profoundly frustrating.feedback

The most compelling argument is the hardest to say out loud: I was convinced that both Bill and Barack were right when they said I would be a better President than anyone else out there.feedback

Sep 12 2017

That's a polite way of saying many of these voters were worried about people of color – especially blacks, Mexicans and Muslims, threatening their way of life.feedback

Sep 12 2017

What would I have said if it were me up there?feedback

Sep 12 2017

At some point in the day's proceedings, Michelle and I shared a rueful look. It said, Can you believe this?feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Women

It can be excruciating, humiliating. The moment a woman steps forward and says, I'm running for office', it begins: the analysis of her face, her body, her voice, her demeanour; the diminishment of her stature, her ideas, her accomplishments, her integrity.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Climate change

This wasn't the normal rough-and-tumble of politics. This was – there's no other word for it – war. This man is President of the United States, And no one is happier than Vladimir Putin. Climate change?' you ask. Health care?, No,' your teacher responds. Emails.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Wall Street

Just because many former government officials have been paid large fees to give speeches, I shouldn't have assumed it was okay for me to do it. Especially after the financial crisis of 2008-09, I should have realized it would be bad 'optics' and stayed away from anything having to do with Wall Street. I didn't. That's on me.feedback

Sep 12 2017

That was some weird shit,' George W reportedly said with characteristic Texan bluntness. I couldn't have agreed more.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Sexism

Exhibit A is that a flagrantly sexist candidate won. A whole lot of people listened to the tape of him bragging about sexually assaulting women, shrugged, and said, He still gets my vote.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Russia

Putin doesn't respect women and despises anyone who stands up to him, so I'm a double problem.feedback

Sep 10 2017 - Republican Party

He is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party.feedback

Sep 10 2017

Oh, I think the most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email. O.K., I just have to wait this out. But then, midnight, I decided, Well, you know, looks like it's not gonna work.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I felt like I had let everybody down. I had not drafted a concession speech. I'd been working on a victory speech.feedback

Sep 10 2017

We should not be here. This is not the right time to come into the office.feedback

Sep 08 2017

If there's one place where we were caught by surprise, it was Wisconsin.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Democratic Party

His attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign. I don't know if that bothered Bernie or not.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Fake news

President Obama urged me to grit my teeth and lay off Bernie as much as I could. I felt like I was in a straitjacket.feedback

Sep 07 2017

You've got to give it to Trump – he's hateful, but it's hard to look away from him. What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I'm really asking. I'm at a loss.feedback

Sep 07 2017

Looking back, that was a mistake.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

I was running a traditional presidential campaign with carefully thought-out policies and painstakingly built coalitions, while Trump was running a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans' anger and resentment. I was giving speeches laying out how to resolve the country's problems. He was ranting on Twitter.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Feminism

This has to be said. Sexism and misogyny played a role in the 2016 presidential election. Exhibit A is that the flagrantly sexist candidate won.feedback

Sep 07 2017

I read Rosenstein's memo in disbelief. Here was Trump's number two man at the Justice Department putting in writing all the things I'd been thinking for months.feedback

Sep 07 2017

I suppose this mini-rant guarantees that my book will receive a rip-her-to-shreds review in The Times, but history will agree that this coverage affected the outcome of the election. Besides, I had to get this off my chest!feedback

Sep 06 2017

I heard it again on the 2016 campaign … it's just a marriage on paper now.feedback

Sep 06 2017

There were times that I was deeply unsure about whether our marriage could or should survive, but I asked myself the questions that mattered to me: do I still love him? And can I still be in this marriage without becoming unrecognizable to myself – twisted by anger, resentment, or remoteness? The answers were always yes.feedback

Aug 30 2017

You know, it's like the old story: You can't keep snakes in your backyard and expect them only to bite your neighbors.feedback

Aug 29 2017

In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now, I'm letting my guard down.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren't repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly: 'Back up, you creep, get away from me! I know you love to intimidate women, but you can't intimidate me, so back up.feedback

Aug 24 2017

I chose option A. I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of difficult men trying to throw me off. I did, however, grip the microphone extra hard. I wonder, though, whether I should have chosen option B. It certainly would have been better TV. Maybe I have overlearned the lesson of staying calm, biting my tongue, digging my fingernails into a clenched fist, smiling all the while, determined to present a composed face to the world.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Trump Presidency

That's not for me to write. I have too little distance and too great a stake in it. Instead, this is my story. I want to pull back the curtain on an experience. It was exhilarating, joyful, humbling, infuriating and just plain baffling. Writing this wasn't easy.feedback

Aug 18 2017

We've got the gun lobby and the NRA on the run, Gunning for Guns.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police.feedback

Aug 06 2017

It will make me seem much too pious.feedback

Aug 06 2017

Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season, we shall reap if we do not lose heart.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Feminism

Writing 'What Happened' was hard, so is what we see every day. As we move forward & fight back, I hope this helps.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Feminism

For people who are interested in this, the nearly 66 million people who voted for me, I want to give as clear and as credible an explanation as I can.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost. The Russians, in my opinion … could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they have been guided … by Americans.feedback

Jul 27 2017

In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net, Now I'm letting my guard down.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Women

It will also give readers an idea of what it's really like to run for president, especially if you're a woman … Ultimately it's about resilience, how to get back up after a loss.feedback

He looks like somebody who's been president before.feedback

Jul 20 2017

John McCain is as tough as they come. Thinking of John, Cindy, their wonderful children, & their whole family tonight.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Russia

If you don't know exactly who you're dealing with, men like Putin will eat your lunch.feedback

Jul 12 2017

This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes. Because it's not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin. He says he doesn't have to listen to our generals and admirals, our ambassadors and other high officials, because he has 'a very good brain.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Homosexuality

It's different when you have a [medical] problem or even for gay people. Celebrities simply do it for style or tax evasion. I've been discriminated against for being a single mother, and then you see these dudes who earn million-dollar salaries for running behind a ball, and suddenly it becomes a trend to order blonde hair [and] blue eyed kids. It's freaky!feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Women

I wish it were common ground, but I know for sure it is higher ground. And I believe, as you do, that trusting and valuing women is the right and moral position to take.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Women

Protecting access to the full range of reproductive health care. It is a health issue, of course, it is a core economic issue. Women in every corner of our country understand that intimately. And anyone who wants to lead should also understand that fundamentally, this is an issue of morality.feedback

Jul 09 2017

Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Japan

Let's all keep the brave sailors of the USS Fitzgerald in our thoughts & prayers this weekend.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - Islam

A greater understanding of the tenets of Islam in our national consciousness will help us build strength and resilience as a nation. The values that lie at the heart of Ramadan – faith, family, community and responsibility to the less fortunate – resonate with all the peoples of this earth.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Women

When you're there you don't just talk. You take action. I feel little bit helpless now, being outside.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Women

What these women are doing is brave and what they are seeking is right.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Women

Something tells me that a movie about a strong powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley.feedback

Jun 11 2017

Nothing gives me greater joy and honor than seeing this great ship named for someone whose strength and resilience is a great lesson to us all.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

If the election were on Oct. 27, I would be your president.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I imagine I've thought more about what happened than all of you put together. I've lost more sleep than all of you put together.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Human Rights

I wish I had flown in from the White House.feedback

Jun 08 2017

We had that thing, you know.feedback

Jun 08 2017

Never let anyone silence your voices. Make your voices heard every single day. And when they even try to dismiss your lived experiences, maybe they'll call it 'identity politics,' stand up and say your identity is as important and valuable as the identity of anybody else who lives in the United States of America.feedback

Jun 03 2017

There are people who come into your life at just the right moment. For me, Sara was one of those people. From the day our paths first crossed during the McGovern campaign in Texas, I knew I had found a mentor and a kindred spirit.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Russian probe

This notion that there are these politically motivated unmaskings is just nonsense.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Fake news

They've got to get back to trying to curate it more effectively, they've got to help prevent fake news from creating a new reality.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Donald Trump has unleashed a level of hate and vitriol that is "incredibly dangerous.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Russia

Americans' guided Russia's attack on her campaign, suggesting Trump's campaign 'colluded. I think it's fair to ask, how did that actually influence the campaign? And how did they know what messages to deliver? ... Who told them? Who were they coordinating with, or colluding with?feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Russia

The Russians – in my opinion and based on the intel and the counterintel people I've talked to – could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they had been guided. Guided by Americans and guided by people who had polling and data information.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Russia

To my knowledge, the only serious Russian politician that Nigel has spent time with is Garry Kasparov.feedback

Jun 01 2017

And by the way, we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Human Rights

We didn't trust government, authority figures, or really anyone over 30. In large part thanks to years of heavy casualties and dishonest official statements about Vietnam, and deep differences over civil rights and poverty here at home. We were asking urgent questions about whether women, people of color, religious minorities, immigrants, would ever be treated with dignity and respect.feedback

May 31 2017 - Russia

It's the circus, right? It's what a classic authoritarian does.feedback

May 31 2017 - Amazon

I think Jeff Bezos saved the Washington Post. But newspapers, like the Post, the Times, others – still drive news. …. It was a very good use of his financial resources. Because now we have a very good newspaper again operating in Washington. I have a lot of sympathy for the people making these decisions. I just urge them to hurry up.feedback

May 31 2017

The overriding issue that affected the election that I had any control over – because I had no control over the Russians – was the way of the use of my email account was turned into the greatest scandal since Lord knows when. This was the biggest 'nothing burger' ever. I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost. At some point it bleeds into misogyny. We did not engage in false content. We weren't in the same category as the other side.feedback

May 31 2017

Democrats give money to candidates - they want a personal connection. Republicans build institutions.feedback

May 31 2017 - Russia

The Russians, in my opinion, and based on the intel and counter intel people I've talked to, could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they had been guided. Guided by Americans. This was the biggest nothing-burger ever. It was a mistake, I've said it was a mistake and, obviously, if I could turn the clock back, I wouldn't have done it in the first place. But the way that it was used was very damaging.feedback

May 31 2017 - Facebook

They've got to get back to trying to curate it more effectively, they've got to help prevent fake news from creating a new reality. The other side was using content that was just flat-out false and delivering it in a very personalised way, both sort of above the radar screen and below.feedback

May 27 2017

You may have heard that things didn't exactly go the way I planned. But you know what? I'm doing OK. I've gotten to spend time with my family, especially my amazing grandchildren. I was going to give the entire commencement speech about them but was talked out of it. Long walks in the woods. Organizing my closets, right? I won't lie: Chardonnay helped a little too.feedback

May 27 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's often during the darkest times when you can do the most good. I'm very optimistic about the future because I think after we've tried a lot of other things we get back to the business of America.feedback

May 27 2017 - Women

Some may take a slightly more sophisticated approach and say your elite education means you are out of teach with real people. In other words, sit down and shut up. Now, in my experience, that's the last thing you should ever tell a Wellesley graduate.feedback

They worked their hearts out. And, like a lot of people, they're wondering: What do we do now?feedback

It grossly underfunds public education, mental health and even efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society. This is not hyperbole, it is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done.feedback

You are graduating a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason. Just log on to social media for 10 seconds, it will hit you right in the face.feedback

I'm very optimistic about the future. I believe in you with all my heart. I want you to believe in yourselves.feedback

May 26 2017 - Human Rights

We didn't trust government, authority figures, or really anyone over 30. In large part thanks to years of heavy casualties and dishonest official statements about Vietnam, and deep differences over civil rights and poverty here at home. We were asking urgent questions about whether women, people of color, religious minorities, immigrants, would ever be treated with dignity and respect. Today has some important differences.feedback

May 26 2017

Don't be afraid of your ambitions, your dreams, or even your anger. Those are powerful forces but harness them to make a difference in the world. Stand up for truth and reason. Do it in private – in conversations with your family, your friends, your workplace, your neighborhoods – and do it in public – in Medium posts, on social media, or grab a sign and head to a protest. Make defending truth and a free society a core value of your life every single day. …Don't sit on the sidelines.feedback

May 26 2017

The advance of technology, the impact of the Internet, our fragmented media landscape makes it easier than ever to splinter ourselves into echo chambers. We can shut out contrary voices, avoid ever questioning our basic assumptions. Extreme views are given powerful microphones. Leaders willing to exploit fear and skepticism have tools at their disposal that were unimaginable when I graduated. You didn't create these circumstances but you have the power to change them. If you feel powerless, don't. Don't let anyone tell you your voice doesn't matter.feedback

May 26 2017

Each new generation takes us into new territory. But while change is certain, progress is not. Change is a law of nature; progress is the challenge for both a life and society.feedback

This administration and Republicans in Congress are mounting an onslaught against the needs of children and people with disabilities, women and seniors. None of us can remain silent in the face of these attacks. It hurts the well-being of children.

From the Women's March to airports where communities are welcoming immigrants and refugees to town hall meetings in every community, Americans are speaking up and speaking out like never before. The challenges we face as a country are real. But there's no telling what we can achieve if we approach the fights ahead with the passion and determination we feel today, and bring that energy into 2017, 2018, 2020, and beyond. Onward!

It wasn't a perfect campaign. There is no such thing. But I was on the way to winning until a combination of (FBI Director) Jim Comey's letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. He (Russian President Vladimir Putin) certainly interfered in our election. And it's clear he interfered to hurt me and help my opponent. I'm now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance.feedback

You need to recognize that trying to provide opportunities to people everywhere requires investments everywhere, but that doesn't mean good jobs will be everywhere. So, for example, if you don't have access to high-speed, affordable broadband – which large parts of America do not, and not just rural, but suburban and urban, but predominantly rural – you are not going to attract and keep the jobs of the 21st century. That's just a fact. If you drive around in some of the places that beat the heck out of me, you cannot get cell coverage for miles and even in towns.feedback

Did we make mistakes? Of course we did. Did I make mistakes? Oh, my gosh yes, but the reason why I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days.

We've got to bust this market so it can't come back. I'm very proud that under President Obama, the United States passed a near federal ban on the transportation and interstate trafficking of ivory in our own country. The Obama administration had three overriding goals: Stop the killing, stop the trafficking, and stop the demand… And part of that is protecting these rangers.feedback

Apr 23 2017 - China

We've got to bust this market so it can't come back. It became clear to everyone that this was not just a terrible crisis when it came to the elephant population, it was a trade, a trafficking that was funding a lot of bad folks, a lot of bad actors. It was being used to take ivory and sell it in order to buy more weapons, and support the kind of terroristic activity that these and other groups were engaged in. So China is going to be a key player but we are, too.feedback

I thought of all our efforts to try to achieve an AIDS-free generation, and we were on the way. We can, if we stay on that path, finally realize that dream – but not if we are forced off. That's OK, I love standing ovations. I really struggled to figure out which event would best reflect my commitment to the community. When a good friend or loved one says, Quit yelling at the television set,', Just remember: we need to resist, insist, persist and enlist. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I don't understand - I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House seems to be pursing. The targeting of women – which is what's going on – is absolutely, beyond any political agenda. They had not a clue what that meant. I don't know if any of them had ever even read the bill! The things that come out of some of these men's mouths – like, Why do we have to cover maternity care? Well I don't know, maybe you were dropped by immaculate conception? The rights and opportunities for women and girls. I think I have a lot to do.feedback

A foreign power meddled with our election. Certainly, misogyny played a role. That has to be admitted. Some people – women included – had real problems. There were things I could have done better. I didn't fully understand how impactful that was and so it created doubts in people. But then the Comey letter coming as it did – just 10 days before the election – really raised questions in a lot of people. I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House, seems to be pursuing.feedback
