Hillary Clinton makes her first public appearance at the Children's Defense Fund in Washington D.C.
Disappointed. Defeated. Dejected. Hillary Clinton looks incredibly down in this image taken at her first major outing since her stunning loss to Donald Trump last week. I can't help but think how difficult it must be to muster up any sense of leadership in the face of rejection, but many of those seeking to resist a repressive Trump regime may shortly turn back to her for guidance. Where does she go from here? As the first woman to win more votes and not win the presidency, Clinton at least deserves a break.

The Soyuz MS-03 spacecraft carries the Expedition 50/51 crew members to the International Space Station
Why do the Russians launch rockets from Kazakhstan, you ask? The Soviets didn't think the USSR would ever dissolve when they built the Baikonur Cosmodrome. They were probably thinking the same thing when they gifted Crimea to Ukraine, which is home to the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The Russians certainly never imagined that former Soviet Baltic republics would become members of archrival NATO. Somehow frenemies get along however, and operations to support the International Space Station continue peacefully, despite East-West tensions elsewhere across the globe.
