12. I agree

This was the central mistake in my opinion. She failed to talk about what the Democrats would do in office. She spent much of the campaign focused on how unsuitable Trump is for the Presidency and on her decades of experience in politics.

But she only occasionally spoke about what she and the rest of the Democratic establishment would do to make life better for those that felt abandoned and forgotten.

She was running against someone that kept telling the electorate that he was going to make America great again, bring the jobs back, drain the swamp. It was all BS but Trump knew that he just had to keep the rubes believing until the deal was closed (sad thing is is that most of them still believe in spite of the last few weeks).

Clinton is a sincere, sober realist who couldn't bring herself to make promises she might have been unable to keep. It cost her the election.
