I think in any campaign there are so many cross currents and events and have some greater impact than others. Clinton, who spoke at the Women in the World conference in NY on Thursday, called for the U.S. Congress to launch an investigation into the matter.
Aboard Air Force One on his way to Florida for a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, President Donald Trump said "something should happen" when asked if Assad should leave power. The aftermath of the election was so devastating.
"We are considering an appropriate response for this chemicals weapons attack", Tillerson said. "As an American, I'm anxious", she said in an appearance at the Women in the World Summit in New York City on Thursday. Clinton added, "It created doubts in people".
Thursday marked one of just a handful of public appearances Clinton has made since her surprise election defeat.
Although Clinton supports bombing Syrian government targets, she noted Friday that it was hypocritical for Trump to use Syrian children as the justification when he'd signed an executive order banning all Syrian refugees from entering the country shortly after taking office.
"I will put it this way: As a person I'm OK. As an American I'm pretty anxious", she said. There is that classic picture of all of them - men - sitting around deciding how they were going to defund Planned Parenthood and maternity care, and access to insurance for family planning and contraception.
Hillary never mentioned that many people (both supporters and detractors) disliked her because she came across as insincere, uncaring and untrustworthy.
"Certainly, misogyny played a role".
Asked whether it was bittersweet to watch the stumbles of the Trump administration in its early days, she declined to agree.
Clinton also speculated on the reason Russian President Vladimir Putin interfered in the election. She continued, "I don't think it's that complicated".
"Part of the personal attacks, part of the bullying, part of the name-calling is to crush your spirit, to make you feel inadequate, to make you doubt yourself", she said. Although Clinton said that she had no plans to seek elective office, it will hardly tamp speculation that she may consider something down the road.
