Hillary Clinton says the primary goal of her new book, What Happened, is to make sure something like the 2016 election never happens again, she told host Stephen Colbert at The Late Show on Tuesday.

She made her first of many stops on late-night television to talk about her new memoir, which she says attempts to answer the question of “what happened” with the election. “I feel like I’ve done my very best to layout what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. That is my primary goal here.”

To critics who wish she would “just go away,” Clinton joked, “You know, if they would take up a collection and send me somewhere really nice I might consider it,” adding, “[But] I’m not going anywhere.”

On the possibility of Russians interfering with the election, she added: “I believe so strongly that [the Russians] believe that they succeeded in messing with our democracy,” she said. When asked if she believed Russia’s efforts were a personal attack on her, she said she doesn’t take it personally. However, she did say the fact that she’s a woman “does seem to get [Russian President Vladimir Putin] agitated.”

In regards to her comments earlier this week that she would “not rule out” questioning the results of the election, she clarified, “Nobody is talking about contesting the election, including me.” Her advice, instead, is to mobilize. “What you do is mobilize politically¬†to express your will and rejection of that kind of Russian involvement and coordination at the ballot box. That is where we settle our political differences.”
