WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton is acknowledging that America has not “shattered that highest and hardest ceiling” with her failed bid for the White House. But she says, “someday, somebody will.”

The defeated Democratic candidate gave a somber address to supporters and staffers in New York, Wednesday. She directed comments to the “little girls who are watching.” She said, “you are valuable and powerful and deserving” of every opportunity in the world.

She urged them to strive to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be.

She said she’s “sorry” she didn’t win the election, adding “this is painful, and it will be for a long time.”

With her onstage were husband Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton.
