Hillary Clinton on Sunday described the lingering pain of being "gobsmacked" after losing the presidency 10 months ago to Donald Trump and said she wouldn't be a candidate for office ever again.

In her first television interview to promote her new book Clinton told interviewer Jane Pauley of CBS that using personal email while she was Secretary of State was the thing that had the most detrimental effect on her election bid. "I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country is at stake", she said.

"My political career as an active politician is over", Clinton said. Conducted by Jane Pauley, it got right down to business with a blunt admission from the former USA senator and secretary of state: Her concession speech came a day late in large part because she hadn't written one. What Happened will be released Tuesday.

She said the word "deplorable" was floating around in her head because 'Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner'.

Clinton also concludes that some of the opposition to her was party because she's a woman.

She also points the finger at allies including then- president Barack Obama, former vice president Joe Biden, and her progressive rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders.

"How are you?" And as if she was approaching a triggering topic, the CBS host asked Clinton for permission to talk about Election Day, 2016. "It really was a flawless storm".

Trump, she acknowledged, was an expert at tapping into the anger and frustration that pulsed through the American electorate in the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008.

"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. They wanted me to share in their anger. It's part of the demonstration of the continuity of our government.

"I just felt this enormous letdown, just kind of loss of feeling and direction and sadness, ' she said".

"Off I went into a frenzy of closet cleaning, and long walks in the woods, playing with my dogs, and, as I write - yoga, alternate nostril breathing, which I highly recommend, tryin" to calm myself down.

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

'You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.
