Democrat Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonSchumer: 'The big lie is spreading like a cancer' among GOP America departs Afghanistan as China arrives Young, diverse voters fueled Biden victory over Trump MORE says the only thing she would change about her 2016 presidential campaign is the outcome.

“I’d win,” Clinton said Thursday when asked at Wellesley College what she would alter about her White House run, according to the Wellesley News.

In a question-and-answer session talk at her alma mater, Clinton opened up on the challenges of being a female candidate for office.


“You know you’re going to be subject to unfair and besides-the-point criticism,” said Clinton, the first woman nominated for the presidency by a major political party.

“Compromise is not a dirty word in democracy,” she added.

Clinton’s appearance at Wellesley was a virtually private affair attended by about 1,000 of the college’s faculty, staffers and students.

Clinton’s visit was promoted at a question-and-answer session, but the 90-minute talk was largely unavailable to interested parties off-campus.

Wellesley canceled a promised live stream and scrapped an overflow viewing area on campus.

Attendees were asked to turn off their cellphones before the former secretary of State’s remarks.

Paula Johnson, Wellesley’s president, said in a Thursday email to the school’s community that the measures were to “ensure this remains a private Wellesley event.”

Clinton graduated from the private all-women’s college in 1969 and reportedly plans on delivering a commencement speech there May 26.
