Hillary Clinton was supposed to be the United State’s inaugural woman president at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, standing under a glass ceiling.

But that’s not how the night went and Clinton lost to Donald Trump’s 276 electoral college votes with 228. This morning at New Yorker Hotel’s Grand Ballroom she delivered an impassioned concession speech.

“This is not the outcome we wanted” she began. “But I feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together. This vast, creative, unruly, energized campaign. You represent the best of America, and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”

She thanked her supporters and the dedicated men and women heading her campaign. She said “someday someone will” shatter the glass ceiling:

“To all the women, and especially the young women, who put their faith in this campaign and in me: I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion. Now, I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday someone will — and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. And to all of the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.”

Clinton represented a brilliant leader we lost with an open-mind, grace and strength – pillars our country needs. “Our campaign was never about one person or one election. It was about the country we love and about building an America that’s hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted.”

She’s a winner in our hearts. Watch above and read a transcript here.
