1. Clinton stood before voters at the Democrats’ Philadelphia convention in July and at last claimed the presidential nomination of a major party for women. I’m so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too. Because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone. 2. In June, FBI Director James Comey announced he would not recommend charges against Clinton over the email issue, but said she and her aides had been “extremely careless” in handling classified information. The issue faced a curveball when the FBI announced just 11 days before the election that it was investigating whether there is classified information in newly discovered emails. Trump called it “bigger than Watergate.” 3. Clinton drew laughter when she told supporters at a private fundraiser in September that half of Trump supporters could be lumped into a “basket of deplorables” — denouncing them as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.” 5. Clinton took a stumble in September when she became overheated while attending a 9/11 memorial service in New York. It turned out she was suffering from pneumonia, something she hid from the public and most of her aides. 4. Clinton released a coordinated attack on Trump during the first general election debate of 2016 on Sept. 26 when she referenced his treatment of a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, who gained weight after she won the crown.
