I'd been working on a victory speech", she told Jane Pauley in a interview that aired Sunday on "CBS Sunday Morning. "I understood that there were many Americans who, because of the financial crash, there was anger and there was resentment", she said.

Clinton said she'll remain in national dialogue because she's concerned about the direction of the country, but she's not making a political comeback. "It hurts a lot".

"Sometimes I would write a couple of pages and would literally have to lie down because it was so hard", she said.

"There were a large number of people who didn't care", Clinton said.

Part of the book also addresses the pervasive sexism and misogyny she faced during the election season. I should have done a better job of demonstrating...

Clinton's memoir about the 2016 election, What Happened, will be released Tuesday.

"He was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others", Clinton said. "Honestly, I wish she'd just shut the fuck up and go away".

Clinton also concludes that some of the opposition to her was party because she's a woman. Instead, the segment was relegated to much later in the broadcast, with the show first spotlighting the devastating storm that was already bearing down on Florida.

"It was a transition very hard", she confesses.

Clinton, often described as a cold calculator, has also recognized the bad void she felt after her surprise defeat, and this despite a wide lead in the popular vote. "Was I going to go to the inauguration?" "Every few minutes, Bill would repeat what he had been saying all morning: 'I'm so proud of you, ' " she remembers.

"The most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email", Clinton said.

In her conversation with Pauley, she talked about some of her most newsworthy moments, including her decision to attend President Trump's inauguration, a tradition because she's a former first lady.

"I felt like I had let everybody down."
"I was up against the Russian intelligence apparatus, a misguided Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and now the godforsaken Electoral College", she writes in her book, according to NBC News. "I really struggled, I couldn't feel anything, I couldn't think, I was just stunned and totally exhausted".

"I think it's a little bit silly to keep talking about 2016", the senator added.

At the end of the interview, Clinton said that she will never run for office again.
