Hillary Clinton got candid in a wide-ranging interview at Variety’s Sundance Studio, opening up about misogyny, the 2020 election and her upcoming Hulu documentary, “Hillary.”
During the conversation, she also clarified recent comments she made about Bernie Sanders, where she said “nobody likes” him.
“I think we did that interview about a year and a half ago,” Clinton recalled. “I wasn’t thinking about the election by any means. I’ve said I’m going to support the nominee. But I do think it’s important to look at somebody’s record and look at what they’ve gotten done and see whether you agree with that or not. I think that’s what every voter paying attention should do.”
Sometimes, she admits, she has the urge to think she could still beat Trump if she were running again.
“I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome,” she said. “And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.”
Clinton is’t ready, however, to share who she hopes the Democratic nominee will be.
“I’m going to vote. I’m going to leave it at that,” she said. “And then, whoever the nominee is, support the nominee, whether it’s someone you voted on or not in the primary process, because the most important responsibility we all have is to retire Donald Trump.”

Kerry Washington has her seat at the table on Hulu’s “Little Fires Everywhere,” in which she’s a lead actor and executive producer with co-star Reese Witherspoon. “When I was a kid I wasn’t like, ‘I want to be a producer one day!’ But I think I have always been — my mother would vouch for […]
Every year the line-up of the Sundance Film Festival is filled with powerful stories from independent filmmakers from around the world.
