"I tried very hard to do that and I also tried to make it clear that we all hoped that the new president would succeed. We wanted to give him a chance. But as soon as Bill and I left that stage I just really felt the whole weight of it on me. And we were in the back seat of the car on our way back to our home. I couldn't speak, I couldn't really have any internal resources left," she explained.
Clinton then went on to explain that she used prayer to help her get through the disappointment, as detailed in her new book 'What Happened.'
"When I write in the book about getting through that period, 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," she said.
"I also had the support of my family, I got to see the world anew from the eyes of my grandchildren. My friends rallied around and were so supportive. I did some yoga, tried alternate nostril breathing, I highly recommend it. It kinda calms you down. And yes, I had my fair share of Chardonnay."
