Hillary Clinton calls for ?resistance and persistence? from Democrats
In a video released Friday, Hillary Clinton encouraged Democrats to ?move forward with courage, confidence and optimism? as the party prepares to rebuild after losing the White House and failing to gain majorities in either house of Congress in the November elections.
