Hillary Clinton revealed that she doesn't plan on running for office ever again, but she won't be leaving politics in all of its forms entirely. It still is very painful; it hurts a lot. In the interview, Clinton said she knew she was going to have to "have to work extra hard to make women and men feel comfortable with the idea of a woman president". 'I am done with being a candidate'.

Not only did she only draft a winning-speech, but she also purchased a home next door to the Clinton family's NY property as a location for White House staff and security.

'I was godsmacked, wiped out, ' she said.

Clinton expressed some regrets, including what she described as a failure to appeal to the outrage of the American worker. "I was grateful for the one billionth time that I had a husband who was good company not just in happy times but sad ones as well". "But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake".

But Clinton also acknowledged her own shortcomings, including what she said was a failure to articulate her understanding of voters' frustrations.

She told Pauley that her political career "as a candidate" is over, but that she plans to remain in politics.

But Clinton didn't stop at excoriating her rivals - even former Vice President Joe Biden, a Clinton campaign surrogate, wasn't safe from criticism.

Clinton also recalled her head-spinning distress on election night and the following morning, when giving her concession speech felt like "an out-of-body experience", she said.

And this is after eight years as senator from NY, 4 years as secretary of State of Barack Obama and eight years as First lady during the two mandates of her husband Bill Clinton.

"Oh, I think the most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email", she told CBS. "I knew that, but I believed that it was my responsibility to try to offer answers to it, not to fan it", she said, calling it a "mistake".

"I relied on several tools, one of which was prayer, and I was lifted up and blessed by a lot of people who sent me prayers, sent me spiritual readings", Clinton said Thursday.

She rebutted, "No, but they were already energized".
