Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton often became annoyed when people asked her why she wanted to be president, according to her new book “What Happened,” released Tuesday.

“In short, I thought I’d be a damn good President,” she wrote. “Still, I never stopped getting asked, ‘Why do you want to be President? Why? But, really-why?’ The implication was that there must be something else going on, some dark ambition and craving for power.”

The former politician then wrote that nearly everyone expected her to run in 2016, but then questioned why she was running for office.

“Nobody psychoanalyzed Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, or Bernie Sanders about why they ran. It was just accepted as normal. But for me, it was regarded as inevitable — people assumed I’d run no matter what — yet somehow abnormal, demanding a profound explanation,” Clinton wrote.

“Maybe it’s because I’m a woman, and we’re not used to women running for President. Maybe it’s because my style of leadership didn’t fit the times. Maybe it’s because I never explained myself as bluntly as this,” Clinton wrote.

Her book also revealed a lot about the mindset of the Democratic nominee for the White House, as she claimed to rely on Chardonnay, Tito’s Vodka, and voodoo dolls of her opponents.
