Hillary Clinton apologized to Obama on election night
For Hillary Clinton, the harsh reality of her election-night loss to Donald Trump did not truly take hold until she received two phone calls from her former boss, then-President Barack Obama: one urging her to concede swiftly and graciously to the rival she loathed, and then, finally, one of consolation.
A new book chronicling Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 bid for the presidency is making headlines for an anecdote of the problems caused by the candidate's lack of communication with her wider campaign, relying often on just a few close confidantes as a go-between even with top campaign officials.
At one point, the authors describe how, in the early hours of November 9 - not long after the Associated Press officially called the race for Trump, and hours after most of the Clinton camp had all but given up hope of winning - the 2016 Democratic nominee got a call from President Obama.
Minutes later Mrs Clinton called Mr Trump and suppressed "the anger that touched every nerve in her body" as she conceded.
OPEC Faces 'Lose-Lose' Decision on Extending Oil Production Curbs
Chief Executive Officer Amin Nasser said the global oil market is moving closer to balance despite the US shale boom. In the Eagle Ford region, output is set to rise by 39,000 bpd to 1.22 million bpd, the third monthly increase.
When that did not work, he called Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta with the same message.
For the last 160 days, Americans and people all over the world have struggled for an answer to a single question: how the hell did Donald J. Trump win the election?
But the book provides abundant evidence that Hillary and her people played a large part in losing it.
The book's apparent consensus is that Clinton "bears the blame for her defeat", due to self-inflicted wounds and running a campaign of constant infighting and disarray.

Ultimately, Allen and Parnes get inside the campaign but not inside the mind of Hillary Clinton. And we know how the Clintons responded, at the moment when the country told them: No more. Donald Trump is going to be our president.
Allen and Parnes appeared Tuesday morning on Fox & Friends, where they discussed how the Clinton Campaign reacted to their failure as the results came in on Election Night. "Mr President, ' she said softly".
Much of the post-election analysis has criticized Clinton and her campaign for focusing on "reach" states such as North Carolina instead of putting more resources in the upper Midwest. She stopped speaking directly to her campaign manager by the end of February 2016.
"Hillary's campaign was so spirit-crushing that her aides eventually shorthanded the feeling of impending doom with a simple mantra", they added. FBI Director James Comey said on the same day as the event that he would not recommend charges against Clinton over her use of the private server.
