Hillary Clinton may have been down, but never count her out!

The former Secretary of State made that fact clear during a public appearance at a St. Patrick’s Day event in Scranton, Pa. on Friday. She has been slowly returning to the public spotlight since her surprising election loss last November.

“I am ready to come out of the woods and help shine a light … help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going,” she told an Irish women’s group.

“I’m like a lot of my friends right now, I have a hard time watching the news,” she added.
