At an appearance Wednesday night at the annual gala of the Children's Defense Fund, Clinton's message included a pep talk, telling people "never, ever give up" and "America needs your energy." Clinton also admitted that there were a few times following the election that she just wanted to "curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house again."

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (shin-zoh ah-bay) will likely want to hear assurances from President-elect Donald Trump when the two meet in New York Thursday.
