Hillary talks about defeat: Russian hackers, Comey and media high on list of factors

Hillary Clinton talked today about her election defeat, taking personal responsibility for the loss, but blaming Russian hackers, FBI director James Comey and misogyny as contributing factors.

Here's the Washington Post account, which portrays her as unwilling to blame campaign strategic shortcomings. ("It wasn't a perfect campaign," she said. "There is no perfect campaign." She also said she made mistakes.)

The quote everybody is using refers to the Comey bombshell about reopened e-mail investigation (that also came to nothing). In the quote, Clinton is quoting an election assessment by Nate Silver:

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” Clinton told moderator Christiane Amanpour, the CNN anchor, at a Women for Women event in New York.
CNN has all the video.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
