No shortage of hubris here.
Hillary Clinton made an appearance this past Thursday at Wellesley College, her alma mater, for a specially-arranged 90-minute talk with roughly 1,000 of the school’s faculty, staff and students. Part of the event included a question-and-answer session during which she was asked what, if anything, she would change about her 2016 campaign for president.
“I’d win,” Clinton said, simply and directly.
Based on reporting by media outlet The Hill, it seems that Clinton used the event to, in part, double down on the same, tired excuses that many of her faithful were eager to cite as to why she struggled throughout her effort to win the White House last year. This included once again rolling out the charge of sexism, with Clinton saying that “you know you’re going to be subject to unfair and besides-the-point criticism.”
Notably, there appeared to be no admission on the part of the former first lady, New York senator, and secretary of state that she may have made any material missteps in the form of any decisions made related to the Benghazi attack, the use of personal email accounts on private servers to discuss State Department business, or regarding any of the other questionable issues that managed to persistently dog her throughout her active political career.
