While they might not suggest that Clinton will take Bee up on her suggestion to work on late night television, her subtle jokes certainly went over well with the admittedly friendly crowd.

"Not just because of things that the now President was saying in the campaign, but just the whole tone and tenor of the campaign seemed to me to be quite dispiriting. And that just has to be admitted, and why and what the underlying reasons for that is what I'm trying to figure out myself", she told Kristof. "He had his desire to destabilize us and others and, you know, he's not exactly fond of strong women". "I think we should've been more willing to confront Assad".

She slammed Russian interference trying to sway the outcome for Trump as "an act of aggression", warned Moscow was capable of doing it, and called for a bipartisan commitment to make sure it did not happen.

Speaking at the Women in the World Summit in NY before the strikes took place, Ms Clinton said she believed the USA had been wrong not to have previously launched such an offensive. Clinton added that "some people - women included - had real problems" with the idea of a woman president.

The former Senator said that she now plans to encourage young women to seek political office.

Days before Election Day in Florida, he said: '[Clinton] wants to start a shooting war in Syria. that could very well lead to World War III'.

"People have asked me, 'Well, why did he do that to you?' I don't think it's too complicated".

"I will admit that was somewhat gratifying", she said, eliciting applause from the audience.

"I am deeply concerned about what went on with Russian Federation", she said, adding that she favors an independent non-partisan investigation into the hacking. However, Thursday was her first interview.

Pressed on how she would assign blame to various factors in her loss, Clinton replied, "We have spent a lot of time-we the proverbial multitudinous we-both people who worked on the campaign, people who were interested observers and others trying to piece it all together".

Kristof also brought up the possibility of heading an organization such as the United Nations' humanitarian UNICEF program, and Clinton said that she was interested in working in "all sectors of society" including non-profit groups. "I don't know that any of them had ever even read the bill, read the law, understood how it worked".
