Misogyny played a role in USA election loss: Clinton

Clinton on Friday urged the administration to "recognize that we can not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America's doors to them".

Clinton helped turn Harris County blue last November despite under-performing national expectations, defeating Trump by more than 12 points and carrying local Democrats with her.

"I am looking at doing interesting things", said Clinton.

I think in this election there was a very real struggle between what is viewed as change. that is it welcomed and exciting to so many Americans, and change which is worrisome to many others.

"Certainly, misogyny played a role". What the underlying reasons were, I'm trying to parse out myself.

GST Bills to be tabled in Rajya Sabha today
Congress leader Shashi Tharoor raised some issues related to the bill and sought clarifications from the minister. The Goods and Services Tax bills was on Thursday passed in the Rajya Sabha.

Hours earlier, Clinton had called for strikes on military targets in Syria while speaking at a Women in the World Summit in NY. "What they did or tried to do on the health care bill. having listened to them talking about repeal and replace for 8 years, or 7 years now, and they had not a clue what that meant". I know Putin, I have sat with him.

Hours before the strike, Clinton on Thursday said USA should implement a no-fly zone.

"The targeting of women - which is what is going on - is absolutely beyond any political agenda", Clinton said.

That, combined with Comey's decision, only a few days before the election, to reopen the FBI's investigation into her use of an unsecure email account as secretary of state, "had the determinative effect". "So whatever party you are, whatever business you run, whatever concerns you have, if we don't take action together to hold whoever was involved accountable, they will be back time and time again".

If anyone was wondering how the former secretary of state is doing after she lost to Trump, the answer is that she is now doing fine but she is more anxious about the nation, especially after all the Executive Orders and threats to women's health care and health care in general. "And I just refused to do that - and that infuriated everyone", Clinton said in the interview, conducted by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. So I did it to the best of my ability and came out and some people at the time said the most popular public official or high-profile public person in politics in the country. "I think many women probably feel that way".
