CNN got an early copy of Hillary Clinton’s new book, “What Happened,” which promises to explain the 2016 election to supporters and critics alike, and the already advertised passages are eye-opening.

She writes that as her husband was nervously “chomping on an unlit cigar,” she took a nap as the results were coming in. When she awoke, the “mood in the hotel had darkened considerably.”
On the campaign trail, Donald Trump often criticized Clinton’s “stamina,” arguing she did not have what it takes to be president during a September debate.
