It was a moving, genuine and unexpected moment for Clinton, who
spent most of her campaign playing down her gender as a way to
reassure voters who might have trouble imagining a female commander
in chief.
"It would break my heart if, in falling short of my goal, I in
any way discouraged any of you from pursuing yours," she said.
"When you stumble, keep faith. And, when you're knocked down, get
right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can't or
shouldn't go on."
