Hillary Clinton on what she'd change about the 2016 election: 'I'd win'

When asked what she would change about the 2016 presidential election, former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton gave a pretty obvious response: "I'd win."

Clinton delivered the quip during a question-and-answer session at her alma mater of Wellesley College on Thursday, where she also opened up on the challenges of being a female candidate.

The first female nominated for president by a major party commented on some of the critiques she faced while running for office.

"You know you're going to be subject to unfair and besides-the-point criticism," said Clinton.

"Compromise is not a dirty word in democracy," the former secretary of state added.

Clinton's Thursday appearance was initially to be lived streamed by Wellesley College, but an email was sent out by the school's president Paula Johnson saying the school would be taking measures to "ensure this remains a private Wellesley event."

The event was attended by about 1,000 of the college's faculty, staffers and students, and guests were asked to turn off all cellphones before Clinton gave her remarks.

The former first lady is set to deliver the commencement speech at Wellesley College on May 26, where she graduated in 1969.
