Hillary Clinton will probably take a little time to recover from her devastating loss Tuesday night, but I doubt she'll be out of the public eye forever. I don't think, however, that she will run for office again (or maybe third time's a charm?).
Previously, I wrote that in her concession speech on Wednesday Clinton couldn't help but fall into her habit of talking about being a woman and the possibility of becoming the first woman president. Yet ultimately, it was a stoic and powerful speech.
Where was this side of Clinton during the campaign? Some people on Twitter wondered: What if the tone of the campaign had been between concession-speech Clinton and acceptance-speech Donald Trump? It might not have been such a divisive campaign.
Clinton had already lost points the previous night when she declined to address her supporters, who had waited for hours at her "victory" party headquarters in New York. Instead, she sent campaign chair John Podesta to announce that they would wait until more votes were counted before they said anything more.
