Clinton: "No Absolution" For Women Who Did Not Vote


In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Hillary Clinton is asked about giving "absolution" to women who did not vote.

"You also have a lot of people since, since inauguration day, in the last eight months, coming up to you, women coming to you with their daughters and saying, my daughter didn't go out to vote and sort of wanting absolution from you," Cooper said to Clinton.

"Do you give the absolution to those who didn’t vote, to women who didn't vote?" the CNN host asked.

"No, I don't," Clinton answered. "When it first started happening, it was so soon after the election and the election was so bizarre and close. It was hard for me to, you know, comfort somebody who was coming to me and saying, oh, I wish I'd done more, or I’m sorry, I didn't vote, because I think this was one of the most consequential elections that we had faced in a long time. "

"So, no absolution but, of course, you know, I just hope people will take what happened this time seriously and be ready and willing to vote the next time," Clinton added.
