What Happened

Despite Clinton’s appeal for sympathy, it’s Trump that her book made me feel momentarily sorry for.

Clinton’s memoir surely won’t be the end of parsing what happened in 2016. But one thing is certain: what happens next will be up to somebody else.

As her book’s title implies, Clinton has her own version of what happened in 2016, and she eventually forces readers to reckon with it. She seems at once the best and worst possible person to carry out this assessment.
