But she just wrote a letter to a Republican woman The Washington Post recently profiled in relation to her participation in the Women's March on Washington last month.
The woman, Joanne Barr, has received letters from people all over the world since the article was published.
Speaking with the Post, she said,
She never expected to get all that mail, and especially didn't expect to get a letter from Hillary Clinton.
But that's exactly what happened.
Barr, who is from Pennsylvania, is a lifelong Republican.
She was extremely disappointed by the outcome, which is part of the reason she traveled over 100 miles from her home to participate in the Women's March alongside her daughter, Ashley.
Clinton was clearly inspired by Barr, which prompted her to reach out.
In the letter, the former secretary of state wrote,
It seems Clinton is finding strength in seeing how many people she influenced, regardless of the outcome of the election.
She's right: One person can make a difference.
