Hillary Clinton lost, and now she needs to move on from the 2016 election.

I’m not trying to be cruel or twist the knife. I mean this with all sincerity. She just needs to move on for her own good. The constant reliving of her failed campaign against former President Donald Trump is unhealthy.

She’s clearly still upset about it. She’s clearly still angry. But she’ll never recover from her defeat so long as she continues to wallow in it, relentlessly poring over every excruciating detail. She’ll certainly never recover if she continues in both word and deed to define herself by her failed campaign.

Clinton released a video this week reading portions of what would’ve been her victory speech had she won the election. At one point in the video, she chokes back tears as she discusses what her victory may have meant to her late mother.

It’s as pitiful as it sounds. I don’t mean that disparagingly. I mean it exactly as it sounds: The whole affair is just sad.

"My fellow Americans,” Clinton begins, reading the speech she never delivered. “Today, you sent a message to the whole world: Our values endure, our democracy stands strong, and our motto remains 'e pluribus unum,' out of many, one. You will not be defined only by our differences. We will not be an 'us versus them' country. The American dream is big enough for everyone."

She adds, "Fundamentally, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century, and by reaching for unity, decency, and what President Lincoln called 'the better angels of our nature,' we met that challenge.”

Clinton continued, reading the portion in which she would’ve said her election marks a historic first for women everywhere.

"Today,” she said, “with your children on your shoulders, neighbors at your side, friends old and new standing as one, you renewed our democracy. And because of the honor you have given me, you changed its face forever."

At this point, she begins to choke back tears as she recalls her late mother, who died in 2011.

"I think about my mother every day," Clinton said. "I wish I could walk down the aisle and find the little wooden seats where she sat, holding tight to her even younger sister, alone, terrified. She doesn't yet know how much she will suffer. She doesn't yet know she will find the strength to escape that suffering — that is still a long way off."

She adds, "In a country divided by race and religion, class and culture, and often paralyzing partisanship, a broad coalition of Americans embraced a shared vision of a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted America.”

The rest of her speech is more of the same. There’s more about how her victory is a testament to how America is truly a place where “women are respected and immigrants are welcomed, where veterans are honored, parents are supported, and workers are paid fairly.”

“An America where we believe in science,” she said. “Where we look beyond people's disabilities and see their possibilities. Where marriage is a right and discrimination is wrong no matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, or who you love."

Clinton concludes, "We all have a role to play in our great American story. And yes, that absolutely includes everyone who voted for other candidates or who didn't vote at all."

It has been five years. Please, for your own good, let it go. This isn't healthy.
